I have a cousin who is obsessed with her little kid. I mean, she takes photos EVERY DAY of her daughter, who is about 4 (I think), and posts them on Facebook. That kid could very well be the most photographed kid on the planet. 

And this morning, she posts a pic of her daughter wearing nothing but diapers and covered in hives. With the status “Brice woke up covered in hives…again”. As a side note, Brice as a name? Just weird to me.

I’m uncomfortable with this picture because to me, you shouldn’t be posting pics of your kid wearing nothing but a diaper. As an infant, it’s fine. But once they start walking and talking, they’re too old for those kind of photos to be showing up on Facebook. 

I seriously need to start hiding her posts from my news feed. I get that you love your kid but really? A new photo of her every day? NO ONE CARES!

I HATE when people post pictures of their ailments.  No one needs to see your bruised/swollen/bloody/scabby/stiched/ body part…  It’s so gross and you get NO warning that it’s coming.  You’re just scrolling through your news feed *la, la, la* and then – BAM! – there, in front of your face, is a disfigured body part, swollen and bloody, and there’s nothing you can do to remove the image from your brain.

@futuremrsgo:  YES. I have a few people who have done this and it’s so fucking gross. 

Also, photos of your children on the toilet. Gross, no. Details about their potty training? Nope.

@tmsing:  My mother does the same shit, which is why we are NOT facebook friends. Stop calling yourself “mommy.” Ick.

At this point, everyone we know has a kid or is mid-hump trying to; so our newsfeeds are filled to the brim with child-related TMI. Some notable mentions:

-“Day in the life of a mom: work up to diarrhea smeared all over my precious angels bed and walls.”

-“Simon did a big boy poop!”

-“Stop complaining about us moms posting too much information: until you’ve waded through poop, pee and vomit, you cannot understand a mothers sacrifice or love.”

-“Darcy is doing great with breastfeeding, but man do my nipples hurt!”

…and so on. Basically, my friends list is filled with bored Sanctimommies.

@badabing88:  Oh god, gross. No one on my list is THAT bad, but the occasional posts about it are just too much. Thankfully I have many sane parent-friends who don’t post that stuff.

@TakeTwo:  If I see a string of ‘woe-is-me’ posts within an hour from some of the usual suspects, I’ll usually post a pic or status about us going to the bar and having “freedom” 😉

@vorpalette:  Mine are almost all bad, there are few sane ones. They only become nightmares 2 months after having their first child, which we all know makes you a parenting expert guru. One of our mutual friends has had 4 kids in 4 years, no drugs, at home…and LOVES to lay the passive-aggressive smackdown on them. She’s kind of a badass.

My sister got into instagram.  She posted a picture of herself in a small small tshirt and underwear (one of those “I really dont’ want to see your dirty bathroom in the mirror” pictures)….

 

When I told her to be careful what she posts online cause you can’t take it back I got a huge rant from her.  Sheesh. No one wants to see you in underwear thanks.

She blocked me from seeing anything on her facebook.

I know someone who constantly posts about their kid’s conjunctivitis. Stuff like ‘Pinning my baby down to put drops in their infected eyes!’ and ‘there’s so much crust in baby’s eyes that I could scrape it off and bake a pie!’

I mean… Yuck.

@LadyBlackheart:  I thought kids were potty trained well before they turned 4! You should comment on that haha. 

I have a couple of sisters (daughters of family friends) on Facebook and they’re always posting about every single thing happens to them in life. If it’s food poisoning, getting peed on by their babies, fights with so and so, etc. It’s entertaining at least but some stuff is like WHY WOULD YOU WANT THE WORLD TO KNOW THAT?!?!?
