Just because we’re parents doesn’t mean we can’t be hilarious too. One group of moms showed their sons their funny sides after receiving a selfie from a baseball game. Not only did the moms’ response have the boys cracking up – but the internet as well!
It almost seems like selfies are more common nowadays than those “old-school” pics where someone else actually took the photo. And sometimes a selfie is so good that we have to go back and recreate it to honor the moment and keep the memory going.
These moms did just that, but they added their own style to it. Why? To poke fun at their boys a little bit.
Their sons were together at a Dodger’s baseball game when they did a thoughtful thing and sent a selfie of the four of them enjoying the game.
Aww, how sweet, right?
They were letting their moms know they were all safe and having a great time as buddies. Points there guys!
But instead of just replying with heart and kissy emojis, the moms decided to take a more humorous route.
The moms were together at the time as well and thought it would be fun to create a selfie of their own to commemorate the moment.
This is what they sent. What do you think?

We think they actually knocked it out of the park! They even have the direction of the baseball caps down. The drink, as well as the thumbs up, just about completely recreate the moment. Some of the moms did a pretty good job of recreating the expressions as well.
This is one selfie that their sons aren’t likely to forget anytime soon.
Reddit users thought it was hilarious.
One Reddit user, ibarabi, said it reminded them of this image of two parents spoofing their son’s Facebook picture:

Some parents do seem to get a lot of entertainment from recreating the selfies of their children and we think they’re pretty great because of it, but you might have to ask their kids if they agree!
Another Reddit user, miistahmojo, commented on the picture of the moms recreating their sons’ baseball game selfie and said:
“Tickets to the game with buddies… $125
Baseball cap… $35
Stadium beverage… $9
Awesome moms sending you to the front page of Reddit…”
They do seem pretty awesome…
Someone else commented:
“The moment when you realize your moms are cooler than you…I’ve had said moment as well.”
Check out another recreation photo below, which is “complete with a handmade adult onesie.” I’d say this family nailed it!
Here is one more selfie recreation that we loved.
This guy was taking some pictures with his new phone. His dad and brothers decided to go for the same look. We wonder where they all got the same hat!

If you’re now aching to recreate a photo to stir up some laughter, I don’t blame you. Oh, the possibilities.
