This sponsored post was written while participating in my partnership with Sprout and One2One Network, but as always, all opinions are my own.

Looking back at all the photos that have been taken since Bubbles was born always brings a smile to my face.  Watching her grow from wide-eyed baby to a toddler taking her first steps to the funny and energetic preschooler she is today helps me both relieve the memories and remind her of her progression.

But out of those thousands of photos commemorating every holiday, special occasion and every-day occurrence, there’s actually something missing.  And it’s missing from almost all of them.  Any guess to what that is?

It’s me.


Does this sound familiar?  Because in talking to most of my friends – and even my own Mom – I found it to be the case with almost all of them.  It just usually falls to moms to be the ones behind the cameras, meaning we’re not in most of the pictures.

Enter the Sprout Mom Is Here Photo Contest #MomIsHere

Sprout TV wants to change that.  They want moms everywhere to make an effort to get in front of the camera instead of just behind it.  And they’re doing it through their #MomIsHere photo contest.

It’s really easy to enter.  Just capture you and your kiddos in a photo and upload it to momishere.com or tag it with #MomIsHere and share it on Instagram between now and April 27th.  Ten first prize winners will receive a $100 Spa Finder gift card, and one grand prize winner will get a $2,000 spa package.  All entries also have the chance to be featured in a commercial on Sprout and on Sprout’s electronic billboard in Times Square!  Check out the full official rules for additional information.

But to be honest, the real prize is finally having photos of you and your kiddos together.  Now when they grow up, they won’t look back and ask, “Where was Mom?”.  Because now, Mom Is Here!

That’s my entry above. Love that Bubbles and I now have more pictures of us together, and loved listening to the giggles roll from the photo booth as she got to stick out her tongue, dress up, and make faces. Pure bliss!

I’d love to see your #MomIsHere entry; feel free to share below!
