Glass walls, energetic toddlers, and motherhood

St Louis family photographer’s Mommy & Me sessions:

The Jewel Box display greenhouse was empty when we arrived.  The boys quickly filled the glass walled room with their fun, inquisitive personalities.  The two older brothers ran from end to end, up and down the curved staircase, eagerly feeling new plant textures and seeing new sights.  Camera forgotten, mom abandoned with baby E, the race to see the most stuff in the shortest amount of time was on!

After several loops around the garden, K & A were relatively ready for hugs and smiles, at least for a minute or two.  Then they were off again!  Mom took their explorations in stride, only putting her foot down when a bromeliad was dislodged from a planter.  Oops.  The “punishment?” Obligatory hugs with your brother in front of the camera.  The result?  A beautiful portrait to grace the walls, remind mom of the story behind the image and that her boys were little once.  (I’m told reminders of how little and sweet they were are especially important when they hit the teenage years and beyond.  Mine aren’t there, yet.)

This is motherhood.  It’s real, it’s honest, it’s messy and it’s beautiful.  It’s tired toddlers and crying babies.  It’s loving boys who need only their mother’s touch to feel better.  Motherhood is raising beautiful, energetic boys day in and day out.  It’s helping them realize when they’ve done wrong and loving them anyway.  It’s bribing with snacks and receiving kisses.  Motherhood: exhausting and exhilarating.

Hello Web Admin, I noticed that your On-Page SEO is is missing a few factors, for one you do not use all three H tags in your post, also I notice that you are not using bold or italics properly in your SEO optimization. On-Page SEO means more now than ever since the new Google update: Panda. No longer are backlinks and simply pinging or sending out a RSS feed the key to getting Google PageRank or Alexa Rankings, You now NEED On-Page SEO. So what is good On-Page SEO?First your keyword must appear in the title.Then it must appear in the URL.You have to optimize your keyword and make sure that it has a nice keyword density of 3-5% in your article with relevant LSI (Latent Semantic Indexing). Then you should spread all H1,H2,H3 tags in your article.Your Keyword should appear in your first paragraph and in the last sentence of the page. You should have relevant usage of Bold and italics of your keyword.There should be one internal link to a page on your blog and you should have one image with an alt tag that has your keyword….wait there’s even more Now what if i told you there was a simple WordPress plugin that does all the On-Page SEO, and automatically for you?
