As moms, we tend to see ourselves in a harsh light. Even when we're trying our best, we never quite feel like our best is good enough. The good news? Our kids see us in a different way. But don't just take our word for it ... if a mom ever takes a peek at the photos of herself that her child took on her phone or with a little toy camera, she will see that these pictures are sweet, kind, and truly, truly hilarious. We found some of our favorite photos that show exactly how kids see their mamas.

We decided to ask moms if they have ever seen a photo of themselves through their kids' eyes ... and the response was overwhelming! Not only do these moms have photos their kids have taken of them, but those photos tend to be some of their favorite pictures of themselves because they offer a different, kinder view. Kids always are a little softer on us than we are on ourselves, which is a good reminder of how we should try and see ourselves when we look in the mirror. They love us as we are -- and then some. Kids always see the best in their mother.
