As a non-parent and a never going to be a parent-person…
Seriously, I don’t really care to read facebook statuses about the fact that your baby took a giant crap this morning. To me this is just as bad as me talking about my own bathroom habits…EWE.
Sorry, vent over (and yes, I know I can block the status messages and have done so).

Totally agree. Its ok to say that your baby or kid is sick, but to update their status with all that Too Much Information about what they have, innapropriate!

soooo agree! I have so many friends that post their baby woes and I’m sick of it.
You wanted a baby, so you got pregnant and had a baby, I don’t feel bad that you are up at 3:00am everynight for feedings and you’re so tired. You signed up for it so stop complaining already! ugh…
yeah I have hidden sooo many friends because they are new moms and have to post EVERYTHING about their babies. vomit!

Come waste some time at STFU Parents. W website about parental oversharing. It’s lots of fun.

@edgypeanuts: Yes!! Was just coming to post that link! One of the few websites that has made me sick from both disgust and hilarity.

I’m totally in the same boat here. Last month, was eating my lunch in the office and all I could hear was the ladies behind me sharing stories about their kids toilet habits. Not very appetizing.

I totally agree! I am not particularly fond of children, especially babies and I definitely do NOT need to hear the gorey details!

@edgypeanuts: Glad you posted that I hadn’t seen it before and can see myself wasting some time there tonight!

Thanks for the agreement lol! I was just thinking to myself…I had a hysterectomy and they wouldn’t let me leave the hospital until I could show them that my intestines had sufficiently woken up by doing, well, you know what. Yes, I was overly excited when it happened…did I post this on facebook… NOOOOOOOOOO!

@karatechick27: Then hide the posts. Simple as that! lol Since you have already done that, I agree! I’m a parent, but I never overshare. Like when she was finally potty trained, I was happy and I shared…BUT I didn’t update along the way. It was just a simple “She’s fully potty trained! Woot!” instead of OMG! She peed this morning on her own! or Guess who went to poop by themselves! YAY! lol
But it’s Facebook. You can update whatever you want.

@muckmoo1: ITA! I want kids but i’ve defintely made a mental note to not be one of those moms. Like really I don’t care to hear about the martydom and self sacrifice all the time. Like Chris Rock said to paraphrase, “You don’t get credit, for all the things your SUPPOSED to do!”. So sorry I’m not so freaking impressed. Once in a blue I can appreciate, but all the damn time… urgggghhh

Haha, I agree!
If you choose to have children, then don’t complain about the “sleepless nights” and all of that other stuff. What works for me is I talk about about how difficult it was to potty train my puppy and how I spent so much time doing it. People usually stop complaining, prob. b/c they are not sure how to feel about me comparing my dog to their kid.
