Butterflies and Mommies ~ "Challenge"

The You Capture challenge for this week was Motherhood.  I almost didn't post for the week because I wasn't sure I could capture a picture that would represent all that motherhood is - the special bond and love that you have for your kids, the worry you do about them all the time about EVERY thing, and all the fun moments you share.

Some of my twin mom friends and I went to a butterfly festival at the Collin Creek mall yesterday and I found a fun mommy moment to share .  There was a tent set up with hundreds of unsuspecting butterflies for the kids to touch and look at.  :-)  Hehe...and apparently my son wanted to see how they tasted. 

For me it was such a mommy moment because as he was just about to put the butterfly in his mouth, two of  my mom friends and I all instinctively yelled "no" at the same time and reached for him to stop.  The mommy just came out in us.   Luckily we stopped him just in time.  *** Disclaimer - No butterflies were hurt in our visit to the mall.  :-)

We enjoyed our visit with the butterflies.  Here are a couple of other fun pictures I was able to take while we were there.


  1. Ha ha! hilarious! Cute photos.

  3. Those are such sweet photos!

    I wanted to let you know about The 52 Weeks of Happiness Project going on over at my blog every Tuesday. Please join me in my quest to scout out happiness for a whole year. Simply post a photo of something that makes you wildly happy and tell us all about it. Here is a link to last week's carnival if you want to see what it is all about.
