That made me think about how few pictures I had of myself with my Lily. I had always avoided cameras...I wasn't thin enough, my hair looked bad, I wasn't wearing makeup...I always had a million excuses as to why I didn't want my picture taken, and so I had very very few. However when I realized how comforting it was to be able to look back at pictures of my mom's life, I knew that it was something that I wanted to be able to do for my kids when I was no longer with them. I did well for a while, taking lots of photos.... but then I just sort of forgot to. It occurred to me tonight that the last picture I took with either of my kids was in November. Freakin NOVEMBER?? That's awful!
