Welcome to my first installment of Monthly Monday Melfie. In the past few months, I have been trying to take more selfies with my children as I was feeling sad at always being left out of the family photos. Melfies are a great way for getting mums back in family photos. And if any of you dads out there want to take part, then melfie can also stand for ‘mother-effin-cool-dad selfie’.
When I looked at photos from October, I only had about five melfies to choose from. I initially discounted these two photos as all I could see were my imperfections. But then I looked at my daughter’s face. Pure. Utter. Happiness. She was so happy to be having a Mummy-Daughter day and loved taking a selfie in the loo at John Lewis. Another reminder to remember the joy, and not focus on silly outward flaws.
How to Melfie:
1. This Linky will take place on the first Monday of each month, and will run for three days. It could be one picture, or several. You could leave out the text, or go into every detail. Whatevs. Just as long as the parent or child in the photo has taken the photo.
2. Add my badge to your post or link to my blog.
3. Tweet, share on Google+, Facebook and/or Instagram. If you tweet with my Twitter handle (@CalifornianMum) and/or use the hashtag (#monthlymondaymelfie), I will retweet you.
4. Please comment on this post and at least two of the other melfies.
