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

Just do your blood pressure a huge favour and delete your FB account smile

I don't like boasting about them. It just highlights to others how inferior their own children are grin (joking!)

It just feels like people need to justify their good parent standing IYSWIM.

Just found an actual GROUP called 'proudmummysanddaddys'. Yes, spelt like that.

Sod it. Just shoot me now.

TheNightIsDark Sat 11-Jan-14 23:18:26

Be pleased it wasn't proudmummysndaddys grin

Beavie Sat 11-Jan-14 23:20:19

There was a smily face at the end of it actually, thenightisdark, so you're not far wrong!

DP just stole the status I wanted to write angry

I really shouldn't share ideas with him.

"Proudmummy" and "full time mummy" always suggest to me that there is a bit of an issue. It's the same with the constant updates about "my gorgeous little family", yep, definitely issues going on there.

I know a couple who refer to each other on fb as 'mummy pig' and 'daddy pig'. Never by their actual names. Words fail me on that one.

Ooh. TheNight. That's it. It isn't that they LOVE their kids so much, they are just so demonstrative about it.

And it means that others feel they can't post occasionally about their kids cause they don't want to be like that.

RobinSparkles Sat 11-Jan-14 23:30:53

TheNightIsDark, she should be proud if him! He's only got 11 teeth and he can read her FB status! The child is a genius! grin

I'm tempted to name change to RobinProudMummySparkles.

MmeLindor Sat 11-Jan-14 23:31:21

Tell them all about this fab new magazine Advanced Tedious Parenting mag

TheNightIsDark Sat 11-Jan-14 23:33:08

I had a Facebook rant. It may have gone like "all mums are full time mums. And I get that you love your kids almost as much as Peter Andre loves his but it might help if you closed down your Facebook window and told them that instead of putting it on a social media site they can't read as they're 2"

I may need to close down my Facebook. I'm going to get badly spelled grief from the proudmummyz

RobinSparkles Sat 11-Jan-14 23:34:52

shock surely no one loves their children as much as Peter Andre! He reeeeally loves his kids.

TheNightIsDark Sat 11-Jan-14 23:35:07

Robin I must start responding by praising the childrens advanced reading skills grin

Beavie Sat 11-Jan-14 23:35:22

High five, thenightisdark! May copy and paste that one myself.

TheNightIsDark Sat 11-Jan-14 23:36:33

He does doesn't he. Except that one he appears to have forgotten about.

TheNightIsDark Sat 11-Jan-14 23:37:36

This was the status:

Getting rather wound up by the people who put their occupation as full time mummy. Most mothers are full time. Also- I get you love your children almost as much as Peter Andre loves his. Posting messages to them online when they can't bloody read is just weird. Try closing down the Facebook window and telling them instead of making yourself out to be the only parent to have ever given a shit.

It's been shared already. I'm not the only one on my Facebook to feel this way!

Do you know the ones I hate the most? It's these ones...
"Can't believe our little angel is 2 today, happy birthday baby girl, mummy and daddy love you so much xxxx"
"Well," I want to comment in a nasty manner, "as she's 2, and doesn't have a Facebook account, and actually can't read, then really you're just looking for attention aren't you? All your family/friends that have remembered will call/text/stop by/send a card anyway, so your bloody status was just seeking 'likes'."
I don't write that though. I just ignore it.

YANBU

Yy to all of these.

Couples with a shared FB "Sarah nGazza Smith" screams of major trust issues too!

I want to `like` your post hallow grin

How about the grown women who put 'princess' in their name? That always makes me hmm.

My cousin has 'full time yummy mummy xxx' as her occupation.

Increasingly I'm finding the need to hide and delete people from my news feed, and I only have 'proper' friends and family on my list. I'd come off completely but all my friends use it to organise get togethers and nights out.

Or, I could just get new friends. Thank god I have MN to keep me sane grin.

Joysmum Sun 12-Jan-14 00:32:49

Or those bloody things that say

'if you love your child more than life itself, please share'.

'If you're against annual cruelty, please share'

'If want to find a cure for cancer, please share'

'I want to know who reads my posts, please...'

Clearly I don't love my daughter, beat my pets, want cancer to continue yo kill people I love, Don't give a shit for who I'm reading about...

This is why I only use faceache to share photos of my dog with my 300-miles away friend grin

I defriended one person who posted pictures of her child's pooey nappies and wrote what they looked like as if it were some ink blob test. It was when her kid shit Jesus that I decided I'd had enough.
