I don't mind the charity ones but it's these other pointless ones that turn my feed into a sea of monotony. The latest one seems to be:

Motherhood Challenge: I was nominated to post 5 pictures that make me happy to be a Mother. I'm tagging 10 people that I think are great Mothers to post 5 pictures for the Motherhood Challenge! I will copy and paste this in the comments below for you. Here are my 5 pictures that make me happy to be a mother x

Pass the sick bucket purlease!! So the mothers you didn't nominate aren't good mothers in your opinion?! Honestly do Facebook invent these things to get all these egotistical lemmings to use their site even more?! I'm waiting for the "post something vaguely interesting challenge!"

I would post: I'm far too busy bonding with my DC over home-made crafts, trips to the beach and cuddles to do this. If you have time you are clearly neglecting yours.

Most of my friends would get this. The rest would usefully cull me. Winner both ways.

Don't do it then hmm

RudeElf Sat 30-Jan-16 23:04:32

Seriously? Just dont do it. Its not compulsory.

knaffedoff Sat 30-Jan-16 23:04:37

I haven't been nominated, so either I am a shit mum or maybe I just have no friends to nominate, or maybe both hmm

As someone who wanted, but couldn't have children, I'm finding it as bad as Mother's Day for making me feel crap.

Me too honeyroar sad insensitive ppl

MrsOlaf78 Sat 30-Jan-16 23:06:08

I am aware it's not compulsory it just amazes me how people buy into this nonsense!

SaucyJack Sat 30-Jan-16 23:07:02

It's cos X Factor has finished and people are bored, innit.

coffeeisnectar Sat 30-Jan-16 23:07:44

If I get tagged I'm going to post pictures of my cats instead of my kids.

Creatureofthenight Sat 30-Jan-16 23:08:03

I seriously doubt that FB HQ had anything to do with this. Probably the handiwork of someone who posts Minions memes.

CalleighDoodle Sat 30-Jan-16 23:08:30

Ive been nominated. I just ignored it like every other bit of fb nonesense.

Riderontheswarm Sat 30-Jan-16 23:08:35

It is an embarrassing one.

SaveSomeSpendSome Sat 30-Jan-16 23:08:57

I havent been nominated even though my family members have nominated each other but left me out!

Im a better mother than them all so up yours!

grin

CalleighDoodle Sat 30-Jan-16 23:09:23

I was actually
Tempted to put photos of 5 different types
Of alcohol...

Tiggeryoubastard Sat 30-Jan-16 23:11:46

Calleigh - well there have been times when a glass of wine stopped me murdering mine when they were teenagers so you have a bloody good point.

Redglitter Sat 30-Jan-16 23:12:05

I must admit I've been a bit hmm about this one. The post 5 photos that make you smile etc are fine but this one is only targeting a minority. I can't have children and it's never particularly bothered me but I can imagine it must be quite sore for a lot of people. I far prefer the ones anyone / everyone can participate

Tiggeryoubastard Sat 30-Jan-16 23:12:34

And when I say A glass........

Dragonglass Sat 30-Jan-16 23:12:49

Most of the ones I've seen have said 3 pictures, a couple have said 5. Which is it? confused

Not that I actually care smile

MrsJayy Sat 30-Jan-16 23:16:47

I have been nominated twice and ignored it rubbish at facebookgrin

MrsJayy Sat 30-Jan-16 23:18:24

My children are adults they would lamp me of I put pictures up

ShaHal125 Sat 30-Jan-16 23:19:51

Aw I liked it when it came about, my baby is my 4th pregnancy, her big brother died 2 hours after he was born, she's my only living child so I was more than happy to share 5 pictures why I was happy to be a mum. I'm over the moon I've finally got a baby I get to keep

PurpleDaisies Sat 30-Jan-16 23:21:51

I can't figure what's supposed to be challenging about it. I agree it is totally nauseating.

Alambil Sat 30-Jan-16 23:23:13

I really want to post "surely it shouldn't be a "challenge" to pick photos of your children that make you happy to be a mum... if it is, may I suggest some parenting classes?!"
