Picture Mama: Back to School Pictures!

For most kids in Northwest Arkansas, it’s the first day of school! And that means some of us mamas are crying, and some are celebrating, and some of us are doing a little of both.

So since we know you have those cute snapshots on your smartphone, Facebook wall or camera memory, we want to show them off here on nwaMotherlode.com, too! And get this: We’ll choose one back-to-school photo at random and that mama will win two movie passes (useable at any Malco theater in NWA) and one gift card to use at any Red Robin location. (Free movies AND bottomless French fries? Yes, yes, and yes!)

Don’t have kids in school yet? No worries. We’ve got a way for all you mamas of babies and toddlers to get in on the giveaway action. Older kids learn in school, but babies and toddlers are very busy learners, too — especially when they’re playing! So if your kid is not quite school age yet, send us a favorite snapshot of him or her hard at play. (Playing in your kitchen cabinets? Learning to snack on wingsCheerios? Discovering the joys of petting the family dog? Send us any shot you like best.)
