The photo that represents my mom and my relationship would not simply be a picture of my mom, but rather selfies of us having fun or the interaction that goes along with it. Our relationship would be shown in a collage or slide show of pictures, however, if one picture photo in particular was needed, it would be of my family together.
The picture would be located somewhere we had fun, maybe an event that took place or just time together at the lake. My family and family friends would be in the photo, in particular my mom, dad, sister, and I.
Talking with my mom about the photo just made it more clear that our relationship is built around our family and the fun times that we have. All the photos and times we cherish most are when we are all together and doing something that is making us smile.
We chose to take a picture of us taking a hike through the park near our neighborhood with our dog. It was a happy time to be home with my parents again.
This relates to the “why not dad” video because every family is different. Both my parents have worked my whole life and I still have the amazing parent-child connection that those children get with their fathers at home, or even when mothers stay home as well.
