I LOVE that blog! It’s seriously hilarious. Have you seen the one about the ‘Mommyjacking’? It’s amazing. So many friends pregnant/with babies just now and i’m happy for them but I must admit this blog is sweet relief from it all… 😉

Don’t have any personal stories..thankfully! But even with a 12 week-old infant at home, I must agree that STFUparents is brilliant. Anyone want to see my placenta pics?

@Mrs.HMBucks:  oh mummyjacking is the worst – I have a few friends guilty of it! I fear to put up how tired/busy I am on fb because someone will be like “you don’t know tired until your child keeps you up all night…lol” or “busy? Pffft try working with 2 kids to look after, and then I do all the house work. Mum’s never stop” etc etc. 

i’m so close to snarking at them but I refrain – I get it parenthood is hard – thou if I haven’t slept all night then have to go to work and deal with other people’s children then yes I am TIRED bein being a mum doesnt make you more tired hehehe 

i love stfu thou – it makes me grateful that no one has posted such gross stuff hehe

Gosh…. I don’t think I should even go there. Lets just say there has been a lot of drama regarding the fact that I had a cesarean and vaccinated my child. The older generation also seems to think I should carry my child 24/7 instead of putting her in a swing or carrier. Even though I breastfeed, I feel very sorry for the women that choose to use formula because the judgement against them is just insane.

I will definitely check out that facebook page, I could use the laugh.

@Cady:  I think I want kids, but I am technically still on the fence. And part of what keeps me there is the wondering whether I can deal with people constantly, no matter what I do, tell me I am doing it wrong/not working hard enough/don’t care enough about my kids.

If I do have kids, I probably won’t ever talk about my parenting with others. I want to be a woman who has children. I have no desire to be a “mommy” and all that that entails. It seems like even more of a pissing contest than engagement rings/weddings.

@Cady:  im due next month & have decided not to breastfeed…& yes, the judgement about this is UNREAL.

But it is what it is.

@EffieTrinket:   I have the same issues/worries keeping me on the fence about having kids.  It’s bad enough with a dog.

@Mrs.HMBucks:  haha yes. I get it, I really do. I know I’ll be lamenting my child free days too – but I’m hoping I will realise others have a life too and also have hard days! I might appoint a sanctimummy/mummyjacker editor to my Facebook and tell them to call it what it is and tell me to zip it! Hehe

Gosh I don’t know but that website is hilarious. Totally wasted over an hour on it yesterday…haha! 

I do have those FB friends that bitch about their exes that they have a few kids with, and I’m just like UGH! That is SUCH a terrible thing to do to your kids, heaven forbid I would ever get a divorce, but I knew ONE gal who did and she is like: “As much as I may dislike their father, I will NEVER talk bad about him in front of my kids because even though he was not very good to me, he is still good to them and I won’t let my views of him taint how they see their father because after everything, he is still a good father to them.” So true! 

I am still waiting on the day that FB gets a “dislike” button…hahaha. I would go crazy.

@EffieTrinket:  That’s also one of my concerns. Among my own family, I’m confident that I could raise a kid “well” in their eyes – they’re a bit more of a live-and-let-live type. More than anything, I wind up giving my mom advice on kids (she baby-sits) – and more often than not, I’m right about how to handle the problem.

My in-laws are the kings and queens of unsolicited advice, though. About everything. So, that’s something I’m really looking forward to. Thank God my sister-in-law lives the equivalent of a bajillion miles away, and they’re looking to settle there permanently, so I only have to deal with her sanctimonious crap once or twice a year. My mother and father-in-law, though..ugh. They’re going to be a problem. Mother-In-Law will probably call me up regularly wanting to know if I want to go out, etc.

Frankly, parenting around them makes me very uncomfortable. I think they would undermine me in front of my kid or try to offer me advice on how to do it differently.

As far as the sanctiomonious moms…my first rebuttal would always be, “You chose it.” Seriously. Between their sparkling visions of dressing their babies up in adorable clothes, did they seriously not consider that they would have kids talking about, needing baths, etc.? It’s messy work. You sign up for something voluntary (this is different than work – most of us need to work to get by), you can’t whine and moan to whoever will listen as much as possible and expect to get any sympathy.
