As a mom, you have a million jobs – but building up your child’s self confidence is probably one of the most important.

Couple that with being there when they call (or text) and also bringing along some honesty when it’s warranted, and we’ve basically got a recipe for success – and these 11 moms are doing all of it at once when they receive random selfies from their kiddos.

11. Two thumbs up.

Or maybe just one, it’s honestly hard to tell.

10. Oh man, this mom is savage.

She did at least suggest that he might be ill. Ha!

9. Oh my god they are twins.

Mom wasn’t about to be upstaged.

8. Honestly I have some questions of my own.

Mom is just doing the good work, y’all.

7. Mom with the big react!

Also the cute picture.

6. Did she not like the picture?

Or maybe she just wasn’t a fan of getting a selfie at all…

5. Mom up with the Twitter trends!

You go, lady.

4. Is that a good thing or a bad thing?

I’m guessing the kid knows.

3. I love how Mom is mimicking her daughter’s expression.

They are both stunning!

2. She had to be prompted.

But I mean, she came through in the end.

1. Dang, mama!

She read that last message, too, and just left it there.

I hope I’m this kind of mom for years to come.

If you sent a random selfie to your mom, how would she respond? Tell us in the comments!
