I love this picture. It’s inspiring to see a mom sworn in as Senator. I love that     she has young kids and she’s in such a “real life” situation. Granted, they do this mock ceremony for the families and the real swearing in happens on the Senate floor but this is so symbolic of how our lives as moms takes on so many forms.
