Have a laugh on me

We're not all in the same boat, some of us struggle to even get in the boat!

It’s time us mums got in the photo instead of always taking them – Wordless Wednesday


After a recent search of photos I realised that I was in NONE of them – and while it doesn’t really worry me – I know it will upset my kids in years to come. I know this because I’ve hardly seen any photos of my mum with us as kids and I wish there were HEAPS MORE!

So go on – get in the photo next time!

Maybe my kids won't be so proud of this one - but I never said I was a serious mumma!

Ahh the duck face - stunning isn't it!

Here's a few of us tonight!

Here’s some I asked the Husband to take because I found none of all three with me!




Here’s some we took at dinner the other night while waiting for the Husband to arrive home from work!




Are you in enough photos? Will your children/family members be happy with the amount of photos they have with you in them?

Author: Have A Laugh On Me

I'm a mum to three, write from home and I rarely cook, craft or clean but admire those who do. I try to live by the mantra that there's no point in worrying about something that might not happen! Be warned this is not a fluffy, sweet mummy blog, rather a place where you can cringe, laugh and be shocked at my brutally honest take on my life.

  1. i’m much better behind the camera not in front. guess i should get in a couple for the kids šŸ˜‰
    You got a couple of good ones šŸ™‚

  2. Nothing wrong with a good selfie!

  3. Used to be the same in my house. Now I have an iPhone, when my kids aren’t taking endless selfies, I am šŸ™‚

  4. They’re great photos! And it’s so true, seems that most Mums are behind the camera and not in enough photos. Good idea, get in some more of them!

  5. They are great and I agree mums always seem to be taking the photos good for you šŸ˜‰

    Have a phototastic week šŸ˜‰

  6. Lovely pictures of you and the lil ones!! I never get in the shot – because my hubby takes terrible photos!

  7. Aww so cute – reminds me to take more with my boys no matter how I look.

  8. I so need to take more too. They will be thankful you took these one day šŸ™‚

  9. Awww those are some real gems!! Good on you and how adorable are the children šŸ™‚

  10. They’re such fun photos Em. This is something i’m working on too xx

  11. Yes!! For years I was the one behind the camera, and looking back it makes me sad that most of the photos of when the kids were babes, it’s mostly my hubby with them! SO to fix that, I take selfies with and without my children, mostly to *rolly eyes* of my teenagers šŸ˜‰

  12. I have a ton of selfies that my son will cherish I’m sure haha. Most of them tho are of me complaining about how tired I am because of the little darling.

  13. I’ve been pushing this exact thing this year. So I have a lovely collection of ‘selfies’ of my daughter and I! Including a couple of under water ones lol

  14. I was the same for years! Now my lot are pretty much growed up, it’s really hard to get them to cooperate for photos *sigh*. Looks like your kids are just as crazy as their mumma!

  15. Your kids move around for photos too! I am never in them either but am making more of an effort lately.

  16. I have been trying to do exactly this for the last couple of years. It is never too late to start.

  17. awesome photos! it really is such a “problem” with mums because we usually are the ones taking the photo!

  18. They are awesome photos Emily! I’m sure your kids will love looking at them later on!

  19. ahhhh cuteness!!! i really struggle with being in front of the camera, i always feel SO awkward!

  20. Ha! Funny photos…love it!
    I’m not in many photos anymore. I’m always saying, “Don’t take a photo of me, I’m too fat!!”
    Maybe I should stop that. šŸ™‚

  21. Same in our house! So many lovely photos of DH and my daughter, and hardly any of me and her. I always try and remember now to get him to take some of us when we are out about. Love your pics, so cute šŸ™‚

  22. Great pics. I remember to jump in the photos every now and then, but probably not often enough. I just have to not look at them – I might not like them now (with the bags under the eyes and other assorted blah-blah usual excuses), but I’ll love them in years to come.
