Do you ever look through your camera roll to fawn over your darling little children? Fun family days, cooking and crafts, silly moments. All captured easily on our camera phones. But do your children ever ask ‘Mummy, where are you’? Or perhaps you look at your family having fun, and wish that there was a record of you too? Well, here’s your chance.
Pop on the forward-facing function on your camera, or get in front of a mirror or window. And take a photo of you and your child(ren). Take a melfie (mum selfie). I don’t know about you, but there just aren’t enough photos of me with the kids. I take hundreds of photos each week, and always capture special moments between my husband and the kids. But I rarely remember to ask my husband to take photos of me and the kids. And he never thinks of it (he is not much of a picture-taker anyway).
So, I am hoping you will all join me. Once a month, on the first Monday of each month. Let’s get mums back in the picture. Link up a post. It could be one melfie, or a collection of several. It could be just photos, without words. Or you can include an explanation behind the pics. The photos just need to be taken by you (or even one of your children if they are in the photo). And the photos must contain at least one mummy and at least one child. If any of you dads out there want to take part, then melfie can also stand for ‘mother-effin-cool-dad selfie’.
I hope to see you all on Monday, 3rd November 2014 for the first Monthly Monday Melfie. Link up, and tweet up. #monthlymondaymelfie
