For the past few weeks we’ve tried out having a prompt IF and only IF you would like to use it.

This week the prompt is: MOTHERHOOD. Let’s see it in all its beautiful forms.

I’ve posted this picture before. I’m posting it again because it screams motherhood to me. I have all of my babies with me, connected, and we are heading towards one common goal.

That’s kind of what motherhood is to me. Loving up my babies and trying to help lead them in the right direction. I pray I’m doing a decent job.

For Next WEEK, The prompt is:

Sleeping. Kids sleeping…….you sleeping. Your dog sleeping. Totally up to you. 🙂

PLEASE let me know (with an asterik by your name or blog title) if your post is about motherhood. If it is, and you are the winning Wordful Wednesday entry, you’ll recieve TWO things. First, a feature on Eliza’s blog with your winning entry, AND secondly, a set of aden + anais Zoo Muslin swaddling blankets (pictured below).

    I had to laugh when I saw the prompt of motherhood (I hadn't seen it until today), because my post is actually very much about motherhood…the crazy side of it! The pet dramas never end in this house! lol 🙂

  20. Milk and Honey Mommy says


    In a weird way, my picture is a reflection of motherhood. Right now it is the only one I have of my three children and me. They walk in my shadow as I teach them about life and I hope to follow them like a shadow always protecting them.

  21. Milk and Honey Mommy says


    Oops! The picture of you and your children is just lovely. It's one of those that I'm sure not only you, but your children too, will appreciate (if not now) definitely when they grow older.

  29. Kasey@ All Things Mamma says

    Happy WW!

  43. JamericanSpice says

    This is such a perfect photo! I love it.

    I'm sorry I missed the prompt. I hope I do remember next week!

  44. Mine's wordLESS, not wordful, but it couldn't be more about motherhood if it tried – come see, it's not at all what you'd think ;-).

  45. FIVE kids, Angie! You have FIVE kids! Lady, you are my hero. I barely hanging by a thread with ONE. *sigh* I need pointers, ASAP! 😉

  46. Love that picture – so beautiful.

    What a lovely picture of you and the kids. It has been a while since I last took a photo together with mine. Happy WW

  49. 4 Lettre Words says

    Lovely photo!

    I forgot about the theme, once again. Tho, it might have been funny if I did put an asterik, considering my photo! :o)

  50. My post isn't about motherhood per se but, we do have to feed our children. Finding new recipes is one way I nurish our family:-)

  51. Whimsical Creations says

    Beautiful photo! Definitely screams motherhood.

  52. Stacy (the Random Cool Chick) says

    That is one of my absolute favorite shots of you and your kids.



  53. Scary Mommy says

    You could post that picture every week and I would still smile every time I saw it!!

  54. Live.Love.Eat says

    I agree with Scary Mommy. I remember that photo like it was yesterday. Love it.

  55. I love that picture. Love it. It definitely speaks volumes about motherhood. No words needed. 🙂

  56. Such a beautiful picture! Motherhood is the best thing and nothing can give you that gooey feeling like the love of your kids!

  57. I couldn't decide if my post qualified as a motherhood post or not–although I do think only a mother would be willing to spend hours pulling nits out of her kids' hair…


  58. I LOVE that picture!!

  59. Every time I see that picture, I love it.

  60. That picture is priceless!

  61. Kara @ His, Hers and Ours says

    I love how it is so simple…yet so very meaningful. It's just beautiful!

  62. powerful photo!! love it!!

  63. Ryan Ashley Scott says

    That is a beautiful photo… all of you holding hands and walking together.

  64. Postcards from Wildwood says

    Beautiful photo of you and your children, Angie. I recognise it as being from the same photoshoot as the one in your sidebar … that is, unless you always all wear denim and white! And yes, I agree with you about motherhood and my post says something not too dissimilar.

  65. That's a gorgeous picture. I could make mine into a post about motherhood but I'll let it speak for itself.

  66. You are going to have to retake that picture in a few years to show the kids growth. How fun it would be to compare the years!

  67. shopannies says

    just a beautiful picture love all the white as helps to stand for the innocent relationship amongst the mother and child

  68. i really love that photo. i can imagine you all walking down the street together holding hands. so sweet!

    i bet they all have a lovely time playing together.

    That is a beautiful picture!

  70. Just A Mom (Call me JAM for short) says

    Love the motherhood photo. I played WW today but totally missed the prompt… No kids, just ducks!

  71. I love your photo, its so naturally speaking!

  72. Heather of the EO says

    I totally forgot the asterik. Of course I did, my brain is full, I'm a mother! 🙂

    LOVE your picture and the words you used to describe it.

  73. Amethyst Moon says

    Great picture!

  74. I absolutely adore photographs from the back. I got one of my three kids strolling down the beach this summer. Its my *fave*.

  75. I forgot to put an * by my name. Oh well. Love your pic!

  76. This is a cute post. I just got back into town. I hope to join in next week..

  77. I love photos taken from behind. I have a whole series of them with my kids. So much can be relayed from that angle. Beautiful!

  78. That is a beautiful picture!

  79. Y'all are so beautiful.

    p.s. I love the "connection" in this picture. And you are a very connected Mommy. With really fabulous hair. Did you catch me staring at it this past weekend? In between praying for you, that is…

  80. parentingBYdummies says

    And, after meeting you in Vegas I know that not only are you an awesome lady, you are probably a REALLY awesome mama too!

  81. SandyCarlson says

    As a good friend says, "Nobody goes to college in diapers. They catch on."

  82. Finally getting time to come back and comment on your picture. The baby's sleeping, the husband's at karate – such a lovely time of night. 🙂

    I think all the pictures you've shown from this photo shoot have just been stunning – you have one heck of a photographer.

    Was this a candid shot? I love it. I see so much strength in you in this picture. It's such a beautiful shot, and I hope it's somewhere on your wall at home.

  83. Steph at Problem Solvin' Mom says

    I absolutely love that picture, it's fabulous!

  84. Girl, I just posted – better late than never right? You had me thinking on this one sista! ;D

  85. Love your picture. I actually joined in. I love the idea of you adding a prompt as it inspired me to revisit a memory and write about something I hadn't thought about in a while. It made wordful Wednesday a whole new thing. Great idea!

  86. Grand Pooba says

    Oh my gosh I LOVE that photo!

  87. Adventure Mom Janna says

    I skipped the opportunity to share a warm and fuzzy photo and gave reality instead -messes!

    Hope I'm not too late:)

  88. Such a beautiful family! Happy WW.
