My two year old was playing with my cellphone camera. She climbs up on the couch with her sister, smushes her face against hers, holds up the phone, and says "Sellllllllllfieeeeeee!!" and clicks a picture. 

I feel like I failed as a mother, lol. Where do they even pick this shit up? None of my kids are on the internet.

You don't need the internet to know what a selfie is. All you need is a phone and or camera.. This is the new generation. These kids HAVE to know these things anymore to advance in life. It isn't the 80's. Pretty cute tho ;)

Selfie is an internet term. I'm not asking how she learned how to take pictures. I am asking how she learned the term Selfie.

It was of their tummies because she doesn't know how to switch to the front facing camera, lol. I don't post pictures online though. Sorry.

Well, I've only heard it on the internet or from people who heard it from the internet. I suppose her big sisters could have heard it from a kid at school or something.
