This is a bit lighthearted really not bothering me that much but omg some of the status's my friends write on facebook....

'x is so proud her beautiful baby has done a burp'

'y is bursting with proud about the fact that she has the most gorgeous little boy in the world who is so clever and wonderful cos he's drawn a face'

I always want to you think that you're the only people who've ever had kids? All parents are proud of their kids, we don't need to know everytime your child blinks how proud you are!

YANBU. However, all my status updates involve wine, chocolate or chickens, so I'm equally irritating grin

LMAO, i have one friend like this!!! she makes me feel like my teeth are rotting!

I do however like it when people im close to announce crawling walking new words etc, thats nice just as its a nice quick sentance not he should be in mensa because he say can dog and so on, so yabu in some cases yanbu in MOST lol! grin

YANBU..although must admit..most of my status updates involve the word bucket or vomit (im nearly 12 weeks preg)

beaniesinthebucketagain Sat 17-Oct-09 17:16:51

just realised i must hastily withdraw my yabu!

DP reminded me of a status i put about our beautiful baby girl and how wonderful to have one of each blushand that i only put it to aggravate sil!

It gives me an opportunity to make vomit noises at my partner and then read the updates out in a stupid voice which is mean but sadly true. So YANBU but I secretly hope they never stop!

Those aren't actual status updates of your friends are they?

If so, then maybe it says more about you that you have friends like that.

Pisses me right off. Mainly as most of my friends have just had first babies and my ds is 6. Pees me off reading about cute little newborns when my ds is chucking bits of lego at me and whinging because he can't have more crisps.

I put that dd had a poo on the potty for the first time the other day. So what, if you don't like it then just hide their status'

YANBU my friend is currently pg and updates us 4 times a day about having bloods or dieting e.t.c until she gets a reply to a post. It makes me want to shout if you don't want everyone to tell you off for being up step ladder all day or for losing 8 pounds don't post it on a social website and then complain that everyone is moaning.

YABU (only a little though)

It can be a bit irritating, but I maintain consistently that I would rather someone be proud, even if it is cringe worthy at times, than someone who just doesn't care.

There is also some very competiive parenting going on with my FB friends at the mo. About 10 women I went to school with all had babies this year. It is irritating, but it can be very ammusing.

chickenshave no we know each other? grin

You know what I find worse? My dh has a friend whose wife keeps posting, 'baby hasnt slept through again - am really cross with him' etc 'why is baby so annoying'

he's only 3-4 months and it makes me really sad

This hilarious site is made for people like you (and me!):

ChunkyMonkeysMum Sat 17-Oct-09 19:41:06

YANBU - My SIL is like this!! She updates her status 4 or 5 times a day & it's always about how proud of her "little man" she is for one reason or another!!! Fuck the fact that she's got 3 girls as well, "little man" seems to be the only one she coo's over. The only time the girls get a mention is when they've annoyed her.

Monsterspam Sat 17-Oct-09 19:42:58

Could be worse, I have "friends" (translation - people who I went to the same school with and haven't seen since) who have such delightful status updates a:

x can't wait for the useless arse to cum and get his fucking kids so I can have some peace


y has dropped the kids at mums and is opening the first carling! Woohoo!
(at 10:37 this morning)

mollyroger Sat 17-Oct-09 19:45:09

I've had to block uodates from a 'friend' who is pg for the 3rd time. every day there are 3 updates along the lines of 'X is vewy vewy tired' followed by 10 comments from her friends along the lines of 'awwwwwww, poor X. Get some sleep' (like, no shit!)
The 3 hours later ''X is feeling poorly'' followed by ''Awwww, hugs hunni, poor X'' etc

I am going to scream!

ChunkyMonkeysMum Sat 17-Oct-09 19:46:45

This was one of my SIL's posts yesterday:

X Is proud of her gorgeous little fella for finally cutting his first toothy peg today!! Lets hope the Ashton&Parsons do the job tonight!! x

So he's the only baby who's ever cut a flippin' tooth is he ?? And he did it all by himself....what a clever boy!!!!

Just out of interest (having seen a report about Facebook being used as means of targetting people off on holiday and who have fairly detailed info about purchases, cars, etc)...

Do any of your friends on FB put identifying info that might help a burglar ?

(Only asking, happy to be told to s*d *ff if too far off topic, but curious as I don't use Facebook / MySpace / Twitter or any 'social networking' / instant messenger web services.)

tummytickler Sat 17-Oct-09 19:58:26

Mine usually involves a count down to bed time/wine time grin

beaniesinthebucketagain Sat 17-Oct-09 20:19:19


Yep they do, some people are just complete idiots! They even update via mobiles about there holiday so any burglar could stay the week and wait for the update saying 'coming home'

Meglet Sat 17-Oct-09 20:27:07

yanbu. It's ok once in a while, but constant updates are cringeworthy. I have a lot of people on 'news feed' block these days grin.

Some of them make me want to comment with "boak" but not sure they would get it.
