To ask someone to shoot me if I ever feel the need to insert 'proudmummy' into my name on fb?

That is all.

Does her first name begin with S?

Sirzy Sat 11-Jan-14 22:58:17

I agree.

I would say the same for anything added as a name which isn't actually your name though!

WorraLiberty Sat 11-Jan-14 22:58:24

How about #proudmummy? grin

<< Loads gun while waiting for reply >>

Yep, no problem.
Will you return the favour? grin

I have 4 of them on my Facebook angry

They post daily about how much they love being a mummy to their ickle man/pwincess.

I counteract this by posting for sale adverts for the older DCs.

Only if you list your occupation as 'full time mummy' too. And possibly your education as 'hogwarts school of witchcraft and wizardry'.

Not referring to anyone in particular thenightisdark! It seems to be rife! Though I am pleased to say no one on my friends list has done it, thank god, I just see it on other people's stuff and on selling sites etc. It makes me twitch every time.

Beavie Sat 11-Jan-14 23:01:20

Deal lunchbox! Let's have a proud mummy pact.

I'm willing to shoot anyone who write one of those posts allegedly to their (not yet reading, too young for FB) child congratulating them on a good parents evening/ school report/ farting nicely.
If anyone needs my help...

wyldchyld Sat 11-Jan-14 23:01:41

Thank GOD. I appreciate that as a non-child-owner I cannot comprehend how much you love your children but I do not feel the need to have my FB name as "Wyld ProudFiancée Chyld" or "Wyld CarDriver Chyld" or even "Wyld HumanBeing Chyld". GARGH

Lyonesse I fear we may share a fb friend!

Sirzy Sat 11-Jan-14 23:04:34

I have seen one with someone having "babymakingmachine" as her middle name.

TheNightIsDark Sat 11-Jan-14 23:05:09

I feel uncomfortable posting about how much I love them. So if I mention them it's stupid shit they've done or said.

I've started commenting now when people post boak inducing statuses. They still do it. Example: I'm so proud of my brave little boy for getting his 11th tooth. Mummy loves you baby xxxxx
Me: he couldn't do much about getting the teeth. Are you proud every time his hair grows an inch too?

This is why I have no friends confused

Lyonesse Sat 11-Jan-14 23:06:12

I'm not even thinking of anyone in particular this time - it seems to be an epidemic! I'm especially unappreciative of 'proudmummy' as a middle name if followed by a surname along the lines of SmithWasJonesWasTaylorWasEvans. I really doubt there are hordes of people searching in vain unless you list every possible variant of your name there could be (perhaps there are and I'm just not very popular...)

Beavie Sat 11-Jan-14 23:06:39

Jesus sirzy. That takes this shit to a whole new level.

Beavie Sat 11-Jan-14 23:07:43

Touché, thenightisdark. Are you me?!

NatashaBee Sat 11-Jan-14 23:08:52

If my dyslexic DD1 gets a B for English GCSE, I promise to NC to Starproudmummy, but only for one week!

wyldchyld Sat 11-Jan-14 23:10:25

The other thing that drives me mental are the idiots who do this "oooh, had a really nice day at the park, such a good break with the weather! Love ma man he is my whole world and DC1 and DC2 and DC3 and miss you so much mam and dad and auntie Freda and Great Uncle Josef" etc etc etc... Just press enter after weather!

I don't do FB

Misssss Sat 11-Jan-14 23:11:06

This makes me laugh and then cringe. I hate the women that have been engaged for 10 years who have a name like Stacey Smith stbJones. Cringe!

MmeLindor Sat 11-Jan-14 23:12:58

I've a relative whose FB name included babymummy and her DP was babydaddy

[boak]

I do sometimes boast about my kids on FB. I think it's a bit sad when people only post about their kids doing something daft cause they don't want to boast.

They are funny little creatures and sometimes they do really cool things. It's totally ok to be proud of them.

(As long as we are talking actual achievements and not just growing another 2cm)

TheNightIsDark Sat 11-Jan-14 23:13:35

I just want to put my status as "I get that you love your kids. Now get off the internet and actually tell them that instead of making out you're parent of the year on Facebook"

As yet I haven't. My fingers are itching though.

ElleCloughie Sat 11-Jan-14 23:13:52

Aahh, so pleased it's not just me! grin

My only recent FB post about twelve week old DD was expressing my delight that DH had managed to get every single pooey nappy for a week and a half!

Also, those same Jane "proudmummy" Bloggs who seem to spend all day online proclaiming how much they love their DC, and as soon as they get home from school it changes to moaning about how noisy/naughty/messy etc they are. Don't they realise they need to leave mummy alone so she can talk about them instead of to them?
