pictures from the weekend

weekend picturesweekend picturesweekend picturesweekend picturesweekend picturesweekend picturesThese were taken on my phone from our shoot at Modern Props for the fall/winter Misha Lulu lookbook? Some of these made it to my instagram (like this one), in case they look familiar. Modern Props is the biggest prop house in Southern California  and there were chairs of every kind (be still my chair loving heart!) and props that I totally recognized from Austin Powers, Superman movies, and Michael Jackson things. Besides chairs from all eras, there were tables, office furniture, space ship stuff and just lots and lots of random artifacts. It was this ginormous warehouse filled with amazing things!

The kids were busy being models and us moms were sitting around. It was so strange not doing anything. I got really tired just sitting there! Also, us moms sat around talking about our “mom guilt” and how even though we all stay home, at the end of the day we all still look back at the day and feel bad thinking we didn’t spend enough time with our kids. It’s cause we’re busy doing this and that for them, but we still feel we’re lacking. I think know matter what your situation is… working mom, working at home mom, stay home mom, we all get a bit of “mom guilt,” don’t we?!

    I wish there was a place like Modern Props where I live! It would be so much fun to take photos of all the wonderfully weird things I would find there.

    So true! I am a working mom to a 6 moth old gogeous baby :)When I get home I am really looking forward to be with him but at the same time I am SOOO tired.
    I feel I am improving at making the most of our time while no feeling guilty..at least I eliminated one guilty moment, let me explain…
    At times, when he became more autonomous (my very independent 6 month old hehe) and enjoyed playing on his own while in his crib/pram, I felt guilty I was not interacting with him EVERY SECOND. Now, I know better.
    He is enjoying himself.
    I can do chores or rest.
    It is not only that he is happy and I make the most of the time, but it is GOOD he learns to enjoy time on his own. My mantra is “I am helping him by allowing him to entertain himself.”
    My 2 cents 🙂

    Recently read a stat that said working moms today spend more 1:1 time with their kids than stay at home moms did in the 1970s….that has to be pretty encouraging for stay home moms today!!!
    Also I want to go here… the phones!! X
