You know what a selfie is right? According to the urban dictionary, it’s when you take a photo of yourself by holding your camera out with your arm(s). You see people taking these kinds of photos ALL the time. Celebs do it. Politicians do it. The President’s kids do it. And you know what? I do it too.
I’ve read that people who take selfie’s are generally doing it for egotistical reasons. That’s probably true in a lot of cases but for me, if it wasn’t for the selfies I’m pretty sure there would be ZERO photos of me with my daughter. You see, my husband doesn’t take photos. Not because he has a huge aversion to it but because he never thinks to do it. I’m all about taking photos with my camera and I take lots of photos of dad & daughter doing cute things like this:
I love my hubs dearly, please don’t get me wrong. But there’s not a lot of photo taking coming from his end so a mama’s gotta do what a mama’s gotta do. When my daughter looks back upon her childhood these are the kinds of photos she’ll see:
So while there may not be many photos of me doing activities with my daughter, we have so much fun taking our selfies that it doesn’t matter as much. Selfie loving mama’s unite!
