Surprise Selfies | The Ordinary Moments

Some people’s husbands leave them romantic notes around the house, some might write I love you in the condensation on the bathroom mirror, they may surprise them with a delivery of flowers, or bring them home a present for no reason. My husband on the other hand, although he has been known to do some of the above on occasion, my husband prefers to show his love for me by taking pictures of himself pulling strange faces with my phone or iPad and then leaving them for me to find at some later date. Now flowers, chocolates and love notes are nice it’s true, but I must admit, nothing quite brightens my day like finding a cheesy surprise selfie in my camera roll.

He may be a silly fool, but he’s my silly fool.

Oh, and then there’s this……. she’s her Father’s daughter alright!


Anyone else’s other half do this? He can’t be the only one!

    I love this! I bet it cheer your day up when you find one, especially if its been a particular challenging day with the little ones. x

    Oh that’s so funny! Mine doesn’t take selfies so much as pictures of me sleeping with a child tucked up in my arms which are rather sweet to have but the kids are old pros at leaving a surprise blast of bemused selfies (or pictures of their toes) on my phone (and then trying to deny all knowledge!!)

    Oh this made me giggle just imagining my husband doing this! I dont think he has ever taken a selfie in his life. It is kinda cute though and would definitely cheer me up! Xx
