Your choice of pictures on your CafeMom profile

I've noticed most moms' profile pictures here on Cafemom are of their children, and husbands/baby daddy's pix next. Comparatively few moms put pix of themselves on their profiles. What do you think the reason for that is? (Or if you are one that decided not to put your own pic up, what was your reason not to?)

  • I don't normally have a lot of pictures of myself because I'm always the one with the camera. My avatar pic is one I took of myself by myself. Plus, I'd rather show my kids off than me anyday. They're cuter =)

  • I have like 2-3 pics of myself. Like the above poster said, I'd rather show off my child, she is much cuter. I'm not sure if I have any of DH maybe 1-2

  • I personally do not like any pic of me. I'm overweight and feel very unattractive. I do, however think my kids are adorable. So, I guess I like to show them off and avoid letting people see too much of me.

  • I don't like any pics of myself and I would much rather look at my hubby! I won't ever put any of my kids on here or anywhere on the internet... Too many freaks out there.....

  • My picture is of DH and I at a friends wedding. I LOVE IT! Plus the only family picture I like is from Thanksgiving and it's hard to see all of us.

    I wish I had more pictures of my son and myself. Usually I am the one that takes the pictures so there are a lot of DH and our son, or our son and our dog, etc.

  • My opinion is that we are on a Mom web site, we are moms, constantly in Mom mode, we tend to forget that it's okay to Vogue it out in front of the cam and post some cute pics because we feel the need to constantly divide ourselves for our family. Heaven forbid we are feisty women with Sassy pics. I have cute pics on Myspace and Facebook, but not here. That's not a coincidence.

  • Its because I am usually the one behind the camera...and of course my kids are much better looking...LOL
