Mommy Reality Challenge #12: When Photos Fail

In Mommy Reality by Jen

Boom. Here we go again!


In last week’s Mommy Reality Challenge, Jen commanded that we expose the contents of our purses to the world! We had many participants! Some of you posted your purse pics in a blog post which you linked to the “Mommy Reality” post, and some of you posted pics with the #mommyreality hashtag on Twitter, Google+, Instagram and Facebook!

Once again, we can only pick one challenge winner! The “What a Mom’s Purse Looks Like” winner is …….

Natasha from Tiny Tots Adventures!

When Natasha informed us that the Nipple Cream in her bag worked well on chapped lips when you’re out of lip balm, we all went, “Wha, wha- WHAAAT?!” But, sure enough! Natasha is on to something! Google it and see for yourself!


Here’s your meme, Natasha! And since you’re the challenge winner, you have the opportunity to be our co-host on next week’s post! We hope you’ll join us!

Our runner-up slot goes to Echo from Domain of the Mad Mommy because we were ultra-impressed at how many essentials she could cram in her bag!


Now it’s time for the next challenge!

Our new Mommy Reality Challenge is… “When Photos Fail”!

There are moments you want to capture of your children to preserve them to treasure forever and ever. A birthday celebration, a special trip, fun times with friends…

…..And then for whatever reason the photo ends up looking something like this:

Maybe the kids weren’t cooperating, a thumb was over the lens… or you just, plain and simple, straight-up STANK at taking their photo that time, Mama!

Whatever the reason they turned out terribly, we want to see! Link up to 3 photos this week of your photo failures of your family or kiddos! If you’re sharing your photo failures via social media, make sure to include the #mommyreality hashtag so we can find you and come back and link your picture up here so everyone can share in the goodness!
