In today's world of social media, we're often presented with "picture perfect" shots of parents with their kids perfectly posed. And yes, those are incredible shots that you'll treasure forever. But one mom is reminding all the partners out there that there's more to making memories than getting the "perfect" shot.
In fact, there's perfection in imperfection.
Cyndy Gatewood took to Facebook to urge dads everywhere to "just take the picture" of his children's mother, even if she's "on day four of dry shampoo."
via: Facebook"Dear Dads, I know you're holding your phone right now. You probably always have your phone in your hand or at least in your pocket. Do her a favor and take more pictures. No, not screenshots of a funny meme you just saw on Twitter. I'm talking about pictures of her. The mother of your children. The love of your life. The one who works so hard to hold it all together for your precious family. Take more pictures of her. One night when she's laying in bed reading a story to your daughter, whip out your phone and take a picture. Without warning. Without posing.
