On a Saturday afternoon in February, a group of mothers and fathers gathered in a tiny room on a quiet corner of Reddit’s sprawling campus.
They’d spent the past week chatting on the site, and they were eager to share what they’d been up to.
They shared their kids’ tweets, photos, and stories.
They asked each other about their child, their pets, and the world around them.
They laughed, cried, and shared more.
In less than an hour, they’d shared thousands of pictures, videos, and videos, many of which had never been shared on the popular social media platform before.
They were proud of the photos and stories they shared.
And they wanted to share more.
Redditors love to share.
Reddit has more than 5 million users, and nearly every one of them has some interest in a particular topic.
Many of these people, like Quintanilla Quintanillas, are mothers.
They’re happy to share their children’s images and stories with the world, but their interest is piqued by the idea that their child might someday be a meme.
“I think it’s so exciting that Reddit is the place for people to share all of that, and to be able to make their own little meme or whatever, and it’s really exciting to be a part of that,” said Quintanillas, who has a 6-year-old son.
They wanted to make the world aware of what was happening in the world.
They hoped to inspire other mothers to share with the people around them, too.
“We wanted to get to the people who are sharing these images and these stories, and then to show them, like, ‘Oh, you know what?
That’s how we live,'” Quintanills said.
“The way you make your own memes and share it, you’re making a real impact.”
They made their way through the comments sections, where many of the people sharing their stories shared their children, or their pets.
The pictures and videos that Quintanillo shared weren’t just shared on Reddit, either.
Many were shared on Twitter, Tumblr, and Facebook, where thousands of other users shared their photos and videos.
They also shared them on the internet, sometimes under the name “mothers of meme” or “mother’s of meme.”
But while many parents shared their pictures and stories on Reddit to help spread the word about their childrens’ struggles, many were just curious about the other mothers sharing their children.
One woman shared a photo of her 2-year, 4-year old son, who had just graduated from college, and a meme that showed her son, with a big smile on his face, playing in the pool.
QuintanILLAS MOTHER IS MINE: “I want you to understand, this is how you make a meme,” she captioned the image.
“You can do it, too.”
Quintanilia shared the image on Twitter.
Within hours, a number of other mothers shared similar images, with the same caption: “This is my 2 year old son.
I’m so proud of him.”
The memes Quintanille sent the woman have since been shared by hundreds of thousands of people, many sharing the same sentiment.
Quintany said the memes have brought them so much joy, and that the content they shared made them feel so good.
“When you see someone that’s so passionate about this, that’s what it feels like to be like, like you’re a part, a part in their life,” Quintanella said.
Quintanna Quintanilas, a mother of two from Florida, shared her daughter, Taylor, with his wife, Taylor Swift.
“She’s so much like the way we are, we’re so in tune with each other,” Quintana said.
She said she shared the photo on Facebook because Taylor Swift’s music is a great way to talk about her daughter’s struggles.
“That’s why I shared it.
That’s why we shared it,” Quintany told the Associated Press in a phone interview.
“People are trying to help each other out and it feels good.”
She said they also shared it on Reddit.
Quintannilla said she didn’t know much about her son before she started sharing memes.
But now, she said, she wants to help other mothers, especially in her small community of 7,000 people, who may be struggling with something similar.
“It was so inspiring that there’s so many people who have had similar experiences,” she said.
The memes were also a boon for the families.
The images were shared in real time, and some were shared by friends, family members, and even strangers.
Some people shared their stories in a humorous way, like when a mom shared her son’s selfie with a meme of her son holding his face up to the sun.
Others shared their struggles in a more serious way, with stories of being bullied and experiencing homelessness.
