Although I suppose in the future it builds up into a kinda new version of the family album

But seriously

An empty plate, entitled "isnt my poopykins clever eating his whole meal.. yey for tom"

Is not something i care about!

I can't wait till I see some romantic comedy where the parents of 'boy' meet 'girl' for the first time and 'boy' gets embarrassed when he sees his mom and 'girl' huddled around a computer giggling at his naked baby photos.

So let me get this straight, you can't stop your obsession with facebook, but you want to censor what people put so it is only of interest to you and not anybody else.

ok, in the defense of new parents, it is an awesome time, making another life is quite remmarkable, however, they do become obsessed and baby is everything, and when you have to go out, why does such a little person needs so much stuff.
New parents also seem to think theyre the first people ever to have a baby. You can always tell a new mother with the cuddling and swaddling in shawls, but by my second one i just used to just throw the baby over my shoulder firemans lift style.
And yes, these people are so boring but they do grow out of it, i promise.
I remember my one year old being invited to a fancy dress costrume and there was cowboys and fairies everywhere. So i decided to send mine as a punk rocker, i spiked her hair up, penciled in studs on the forehead, put her in a ripped t shirt with slightly objectable phrases on it and guess what, we didnt win the competition

Some people have no sense of humour hey?


I agree, I have been there myself, the novelty soon wheres off especially fourth kid! Lol

Then when you find out you are pregnant you argue whose fault it was!

Facebook wasnt around during my kids first few years

I guess if it had of been I would have been that boring, sleep deprived baby junky myself

Facebook has a very cool feature you might want to familiarize yourself with : UNFRIEND. Yup, that's right, just unfriend those people that post things you do not want to read. Problem solved and we can all go back to our normal programming.

By the way, dont you think your facebook wall would have been a more appropriate place for this rant?

ATS has a very cool forum you might not want to familiarize yourself with: OFFTOPIC: RANT. Yup, that's right, just show up and rant about whatever you want.

By the way, you sound like you went to see a stand up comic and got pissed because he didn't lecture on particle physics.

I agree with the OP but its just the new technological wave resembling the old days - "Wanna see my kid!" - and whipping out a wallet 4 inches thick with pictures that hardly vary from one to the next

I always hated that
the worse part offline is having to nod and smile politely (even when the kid was ugly) - on FB you can just move on to the next post
Yay!!!


nothing bitter here - 2 awesome kids - never made anyone look at their pictures

Seriously dude you are troubled. Get some help. You presented a problem, I told you how to fix it. No need to call me smart.

In your 1st post you were being mildly antogonistic which i why I could not be bothered to reply.

But thanks for your humourless tip.

I never knew that! (Coz duhhhh im thick
)

But as the other poster said

I can post what I damn well choose with the t and c's

Thanks again mate

GET OFF FACEBOOK



Trust me, I got off it 6 months ago and I feel great!


Its easy to deactivate an account.

Ever tried deleting one?
I had facebook for about a month, my kids made me, i think i may have deactivated it now (she uses that phrase tentatively), there something about FB that i distrust implicity,l dont ask me to explain, just a bad feelinf.

Would not have the first clue how!

Sheesh





So did you log on or did your phone go off?

And this thread is exactly the kind of crap people post on FB, you are essentially doing the very thing you're complaining about.

Why even use facebook?

I understand what you are saying...but I find many new parents...well....kind of sweet and funny,,,,,and wonderful! They are so into their babies....very loving...and caring....everything is important!...down to the last q-tip used. I rejoice in the fact that they are a family and they know how to love.
