October Photo Challenge: 12. on the table

You know those stay at home mums who keep an immaculate house and give their kids educational activities to develop them? I am not that Mum. When I saw the prompt for today’s photo ‘on the table’ I thought about cleaning it up. But I think half of the reason so many of us feel inadequate is because we compare ourselves to the public face that people show. I could of cleaned up my table and shown you a lovely bowl of flowers (cue groaning from those of you who are sick to death of flower photos), but it only looks that way on rare occasions when I am trying to impress people. Most of the time it is a storage hub for the goings on from the day. Craft bits, things I find on the floor and need to get away from the hungry jaws of a 1 year old who will eat anything (except what he is supposed to!), food related things, tissues, you name it, it may be there if you look under something.

So here are a few photos of my table the way it was when I read the prompt. I personally think it is more of a compliment to show people the way you truly live, after all it shows that you don’t feel the need to pretend with them. I am and my table is.

This one is my sons’ craft table. We were making Halloween decorations today. He likes cutting things with his plastic scissors. Give him paper and you will find it everywhere. He loves it though. Worth it I reckon.

  1. oh what a shame and I was expecting a polished surface and a bowl of chrysanthemums – with just one fallen zen like petal. Instead I find – reality. Lovely shots and lucky children to have a crafty Mum too

    1. Haha! You’d be more likely to find a chrysanthemum with all of the petals fallen and the flower stem dried out under a pile of material 😉 Thanks by the way, I must take a photo of our toilet roll mummy mobile, E was so proud.

I appreciate your thoughts and feedback.
