47/365... Self-portrait fail joy.

Day 16 | Joy of Love: "together (self-portrait)"

I had big plans for today's self-portrait. I was going to shower, put on some make-up, and wear something other than exercise clothes.

This is about as good as it is going to get for today's theme. The kids were extra cranky. I haven't showered. Not even sure if I brushed my teeth. No makeup. Forget the hair. Still have on my frumpy exercise clothes (but I DID exercise).

Some days are like this.

It makes me extra grateful for the better days. And the days that I can shower. And brush my teeth.

Self-portrait fail joy.

I don't see a fail here, just a successful fun mommy moment!

What's better than this? It's everything that matters. A mom who cares enough to take care of herself and exercise, and then play with her kids! Awesome.

And these are the type of days I miss. This is not a fail, it's perfect.

I think this is perfect despite the flaws you may say! The look of fun on everyone's face is priceless! ;)

I love this because it is who you are and not who you want everyone to see. That is when you know you're among true friends!
