The moms out there know what I am talking about, but for those of you who don't ~ a Mama Pic is when you take a snapshot in your head and add it to those other "Mama Pics" that already reside there. Mama Pics stay in your head and are ready to be used during times of extreme parenting stress. I classify "extreme parenting stress" as those times when the Red Cloud descends and is preceded with "BECAUSE I SAID SO" and the silent counting to 10 starts. When you have Mama Pics to pull out they assist with making the 10 count successful. They also provide you with a reminder that your child is not possessed, but merely struggling with the terrible twos, threes, fours, puberty, pre-teen, teen or young adult syndrome (by the way, this list is not all inclusive). So now you know why those Mama Pics are so important, they make the hardest job in the world worth it all!
