How real is Facebook?
I’ve always had a love/hate relationship with the site. I love that I can shoot out a playdate invite to a group of Mommies and everyone can chime in with ideas places and times. I hate that I can’t go to the park with the kiddos without the fluffy status of “Another awesome day in the So Cal sunshine playing with the kiddos.” I mean, can’t I enjoy a piece of pie without a picture and with the word “yum!” under it!?!
Yesterday my Facebook status read “Eating malt-o-meal with applesauce, an orange, and a Cadbury Creme egg (or two) with a glass of milk for lunch. Don’t judge.” I thought, “Gee, I’m being so funny and cute!” I knew no one would actually judge me. And if they did, I would get comments like “LOL, those pregnancy cravings” or similar not-so-sinful admissions like “At least you had malt-o-meal. I had a Big Mac!”
What if I really put things on there that could be judged? You know, the things I don’t want people to know because… well… they are embarrassing or show my flaws.
Here are a few of my Facebook statuses that didn’t make the cut:
- Didn’t follow through on discipline with Eli for repeatedly pushing his sister because I was putzing around on twitter. Don’t judge.
- >Not going to change Cora because it was just tinkle and I know that diaper can hold more. Wouldn’t want to waste that quarter. Don’t judge.
- I gave the kiddos raisins, and M&Ms for lunch because we haven’t been to the grocery store in weeks. Don’t judge.
- I give the kiddos the unhealthy small packages of fruit snacks and I eat the big real fruit juice ones. Don’t judge.
- Just ate 2 old Hot Tamales I found while vacuuming the couch. Don’t judge.
Do you have any statuses that didn't make it to Facebook. Leave a comment... I promise not to judge!
Oh, and don't forget to fan me on Facebook…because I really do want to know when and where you and what you are doing are at all times!
