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 love your photo.
    This is my first time playing Wordful Wednesday. I see other people playing all the time.

    I entered your contest and gave you a Motherhood photo.

    For once I'm actually early! Since I haven't linked up in some time now, I thought I shouldn't procrastinate.

    I just love that photo of you all. It is so poetic.

    What a beautiful photo and I love the correlation you made with motherhood.

    And I really like next week's prompt!

    Genny says

    What a sweet photo, Angie.

    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 🙂

    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.

    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.

    Elaine A. says

    That picture is so spectacular. I absolutely love it and agree that it is the epitome of Motherhood and so are you Angie…

    T Rex Mom says

    It's such a great photo it definitely merits viewing over and over. I hope you have a copy hanging in your home. It's that good.

    My motherhood posting is up on T Rex Mom and Dad Tales.

    Happy WW!

    Holly at Tropic of Mom says

    That is just beautiful! Five children, wow. And redheads, oh… I'm a sucker for redheads. I just might have to do the sleeping-baby thing next week.

  12. 67

    Kasey@ All Things Mamma says

    I love, love, LOVE this photo!
    All those redheads too! I have two of my own, so I'm kinda partial.

    Wish I had the time to look for a good picture for this theme. Good luck to everyone and thanks for sharing. That is a gorgeous photo.

    That is an Awesome Picture!!! If you havent already, you should make a 11×14 of that and have it on your wall! Wonderful!

    BoufMom9 says

    Love that picture!

    Taking advantage today to ask for prayers. Another of my friends has a child just diagnosed with neuroblastoma. I just can't even believe it 🙁

    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!

    Robin says

    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 ;-).

  19. 94

    Jennifer says

    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! 😉

    Dominique Goh says

    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

    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)

    Susie says

    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:-)

    Courtney says

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

    Octamom says

    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…

    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.

  26. 114

    Kekibird says

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

  27. 115

    Michelle says

    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!

    shopannies says

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

    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!

    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.

    Peaches says

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

    Momlissa says

    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!

    Lula! says

    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…

    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!

    Sera says

    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.

    Laura says

    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!

    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:)

    I vividly rebmemer the feeling that swallowed me whole when my first son underwent an MRI (at 4 months of age! in order to verify that he didn’t have a brain tumor pressing on his optic nerve!). They had to sedate him and signing the form that outlined the risks was like holding my hand over an open flame. It did feel like a sword piercing my heart. I rebmemer thinking, What have I done, opening myself up to this kind of pain? I love reading your writing that reminds me of the mother I have in Mary.
