Motherhood. A Gallery post

This weeks photo prompt is 'motherhood.'

As chance would have it Geekydaddy picked up the camera this weekend, and took some pictures that actually have me in them. 

It has been a broiling weekend. You might assume that it is always swimsuit weather in California, or that we all have swimming pools in our back gardens. If we lived in the burbs that might be true, but in fact really hot weather is quite rare in San Francisco itself, we are wrapped in fog for most of the summer, and the price of real estate means that we have have small houses, and consider ourselves lucky even to have a small backyard.

Who needs a swimming pool anyway? For me the definition of motherhood is donning my bikini and dunking my mummy tummy in the paddling pool along with the children.
