When Korbi Ashton leaves her home with all six of her youngsters in tow, she’s used to getting feedback from strangers. They vary from the annoying however harmless “you’ve got your hands full!” to extra offensive, like “you know the world is already overpopulated” and “do they all have the same baby daddy?” (which is impolite on extra ranges than might be defined on this article).
She will get these feedback so typically that she even has a shirt that claims “Yes, they are all mine!” (her twin sister gave it to her). The fixed inquiries inspired her to write about what it is wish to be a mom of six, and since she works as a photographer, she was capable of share photographs of simply how chaotic (and superior) her life could be.
Ashton is the primary to confess that, sure, her arms are very full. “They are full of vomit sometimes from a sick child that couldn’t make it to the bathroom in time looking at me with sad eyes,” she wrote. “They are full of band aid wrappers from kissing and healing skinned knees. They are full of bread crumbs wiped off the counter after a toddler tried to make their own sandwich, full of snotty Kleenex from runny sick noses.”
But, she continued, “Do you know what else is full? My heart. My heart is bursting at the seams with pride at my kind, sweet hearted children.”
Although a few of these pictures might appear to be they solely seize mundane actions, like washing the dishes and doing laundry, Ashton feels they’re all necessary in documenting their lives.
“I love to photograph our everyday lives and record the day-to-day things that we do,” Ashton advised The Huffington Post.
