Sure, why not, let’s do that. You have a fortnight, until comments close, to post a link to a photo of a mother doing something decidedly not simple, with her child (of any age) in the shot. In a fortnight, assuming we get some, I’ll do a second post with selected photos.
Note: please have the explicit consent of everyone in the photo who is capable of giving it, or of their guardian if not, to have their photo posted on the web in this context.
Here’s a form to copy and paste into comments:
URL to my photo (either directly or a gallery page):

Comments on this post will be visible so that people can see and perhaps be inspired by each other’s photos but there will be another post in a fortnight or so with a roundup.
