So I have a facebook as does probably every single person I know. And I even post links to my blog on there, as everyone knows what we are going through. But can I just tell you, the "mommy" week on facebook....it downright stings. Seeing it on every freaking status on my wall...bleh!! It seriously has made me avoid facebook for a few days. I literally hide those statuses as soon as they pop up. Not because of anything my friends are doing...but being on the"other side" I dont know, it just feels like salt being rubbed into the wound. I almost said something on facebook about it. But then I realized I didnt wanna be misconstrued as "mean". So I am just going to write about it here...and if your a mommy and you get offended by this. Well Im sorry...but I wont apologize for how seeing all the "mommy" status updates makes me feel. Sometimes I have thought about getting rid of facebook, but then I realize I couldnt because of how many people I have that I talk to on there. I really wish facebook would come up with something that I could put a forbidden words list and statuses that had those words in the content would disappear from my feed.
I think I would put: Im pregnant, We're expecting, baby, pregnancy...well you get the picture. But then again it would probably make statuses disappear like "We're expecting our house to sell tomorrow!" or "Baby, I love you!" Ha, I definitely just made myself "laugh out loud". Anyways, this is my rant about facebook and the torture it brings to those of us who feel like we're on the outside "looking in"
