Watch Out Taylor Swift, My Four Year Old Daughter Has Been On Instagram Again

Camera and Laptop

A little while ago I wrote a post admitting that, while seemingly random and ridiculous, I love the simplicity of my daughter’s definition of what makes her happy, at least through the lens of a child’s camera. I also admitted I have a lot of time at home with my twin toddlers, so I tend to make up stuff in my head to avoid total boredom and insanity. After downloading hundreds of her photos onto my laptop, I started thinking of captions to go with some of them. I then created a fake Instagram account in my mind with the handle @elsaloveslionking as if my four year old is sharing her life with the rest of the world on IG.

Sometimes I imagine my daughter has more followers than Kim K or Tay Tay. And because of her celebrity, I can picture my sweet Eva sitting on the couch during a segment of The Ellen Show, being interviewed by Ellen herself but not before the two of them dance together. They share photos and hashtags and then Ellen surprises Eva with a trip to Disney. It would be awesome.

Then I realize I am staring at an up-close view of a My Little Pony eyeball and snap back to the reality of a four year old’s world. With her keen eye for artistry and my need to put words to everything, here is a glimpse of that world in 10 faux Instagram photos.

With the passage of marriage equality last year, laws have been quickly changing across the United States. LGBT couples with or without children weren’t just given the right of marriage, they were provided new protections and benefits within their families.

Representation of Modern Families in Kid-Friendly Entertainment

By Alex Temblador

I recently wrote an article for The Next Family called, “Family-Friendly Films That Feature Adoption and Foster Care,” that shared wonderful family films with adoption or foster care story lines. My reasoning behind doing so was because every family deserves a chance to see similar families like theirs represented in various forms of entertainment.

The same can be said of other...
