Monthly Monday Melfie – November 2014


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.
