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 · 30/01/2016 23:04

Seriously? Just dont do it. Its not compulsory.

knaffedoff · 30/01/2016 23:04

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.

nashley · 30/01/2016 23:06

Me too honeyroar :( insensitive ppl

MrsOlaf78 · 30/01/2016 23:06

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

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

coffeeisnectar · 30/01/2016 23:07

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

Creatureofthenight · 30/01/2016 23:08

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

CalleighDoodle · 30/01/2016 23:08

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

Riderontheswarm · 30/01/2016 23:08

It is an embarrassing one.

SaveSomeSpendSome · 30/01/2016 23:08

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!


CalleighDoodle · 30/01/2016 23:09

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

Tiggeryoubastard · 30/01/2016 23:11

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 · 30/01/2016 23:12

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

MrsTerryPratchett · 30/01/2016 23:12

Probably the handiwork of someone who posts Minions memes.


Tiggeryoubastard · 30/01/2016 23:12

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

Dragonglass · 30/01/2016 23:12

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 · 30/01/2016 23:16

I have been nominated twice and ignored it rubbish at facebookGrin

MrsJayy · 30/01/2016 23:18

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

ShaHal125 · 30/01/2016 23:19

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 · 30/01/2016 23:21

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

Alambil · 30/01/2016 23:23

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?!"

Tableandchairs1234 · 30/01/2016 23:25

Yeah I think it doesn't really sit right with me. I have lovely children. I don't need to boast about it.
