To All The Baby Haters Out There

 

There’s no doubt about it, my son is apart of my life. I wake up, he’s there, I get home from work, he’s there, I go to sleep, he’s there. 

It’s bound to happen. I’m going to put up a picture, or three, of him on Facebook. Deal with it. 

I have to deal with your constant stream of drunken selfies and #foodporn photos.

Like I give a shit about a tuna melt? But do I come knocking on your Facebook photo and question you on why you are putting up “yet another” drunken selfie? 

Food / drink is a part of your life, babies are a part of mine. 

You feel proud of your tuna melt, I feel proud of my son crawling. I carried him in my body for 10 months and spent 3 days in labour, and now on a day to day basis I only have two hours a sleep per night and go into work with a smile on my goddamn face. I’m sure you can say the same for your tuna melt. 

Why does your opinion matter now that I have a child?

You’d think I would have authority over my choices for my child. NOPE. Everyone please share your opinion with me, especially if you don’t have children, I would love to know how many photos am I allowed to post of him on Facebook? 

Mr. Zuckerberg, please we only want to see one photo of your newborn daughter, thanks. 

I’m sorry our photos are so boring to you. Is this any better?

I am not sorry. 

My son is the biggest accomplishment of my life and I’m not going to hide it. 

He’s a part of my life and I’m fucking proud of it.

  1. Right on! People can post whatever they like to their own social media – if you see it and dont like it, it literally takes a second to scroll on past. PS your son is scrumptious and you look great in that selfie. #stayclassymama

  2. I love this! I laughed out loud about the tuna melt! I remember when I had Eva and I literally shared thousands of photos of her and a couple of “friends” made sly remarks about it, as though I was some kind of baby bore – which I am and proud! Meanwhile they were sharing photos of another glass of wine or a new outfit or their nights out. Funnily enough now they are Mums, they’re sharing baby photos just like I did…it happens to us all! #stayclassymama

  4. I can’t believe that people are so upset by you posting baby photos…why are they bothered? Why do they look if they are so bothered? Nowt as queer as folk, as my Nanna used to say and she’s so right. Alison x #StayClassyMama

  5. Ha – so true although as a Mum myself I try to keep it to a limit. I have to admit that people posting things about their kids too regularly (that are not super cute, funny or really of anything at all) do get hidden. Same for food porn, dogs/cats, and selfies. Sorry not sorry 😉 #StayClassyMama

  6. Someone FINALLY said it! Food photos are inexplicable to me. I will tolerate an *occasional* selfie, particularly if a furry creature is also featured (witness Exhibit A, my personal Facebook profile photo). However, I do not have any interest in viewing something that will eventually become excrement.

    Thanks for entertaining me this morning!

  7. Jesus, I cannot believe some people are actually that rude! You know what you can do if you don’t want to see baby pics? Stop following that person!!! You don’t even have to unfriend them anymore! I wouldn’t blame you at all for unfriending them though! x #stayclassymama

  8. Ha!! Jeez even before I had kids I found photos of food and selfies A LOT more irritating than pictures of babies and kids. Ah people need to lighten the fuck up! Stay proud you wonderful mama #StayClassyMama

  9. Hahaha – love it! I don’t get the haters. You can unfollow me if you have a problem the baby pics. Or, like a normal person, you can see the pics, say, “Oh, that’s nice,” and then move on with you life. Duck face is WAY worse. #stayclassymama

  10. Ok, I’m not a baby hater and I certainly have no problem with people posting photos of their babies online. Who doesn’t love a cute baby photo! But I’m still trying to decide for myself if I want photos of my girl out in the world online. I know this is slightly off topic, but I’m sure it’s something you’ve thought about? Part of me thinks I’m just being precious and another part says I shouldn’t post her photos online in public. Help me out here! Tell me your thoughts? #stayclassymama

    1. I agree with this in a way, I’m not sure what’s right or wrong though. On one side, will our children be upset that we posted photos of them without their permission? On the flip side, it’s our child so we should be able to know what’s best? I totally get you but I think on Facebook to close friends should be okay, blogging is another beast to think about though!

      1. It’s more the photos being out in the world, free for anyone to do with as they please thing for me. I think it would be strange if a photo of us popped up on Pinterest or something.
        I totally agree about private Facebook accounts. Still making my mind up about photos on blogs but I have posted a few. I want to cos I have lots that tell our story, but at the same time I’m unsure. Hmm this is bothering me at the moment!

  11. Yes! Tell them where to stick their tuna melts! If they were really enjoying them so much would they have time to post rude comments on baby photos? Loving the hashtag and am so going to use it. #annoypeoplewithoutbabies #stayclassymama

  12. #annoypeoplewithoutkids I love this – lets start a movement, a rebellion – a revolution! A whole new linky? Also your duck face selfie pose made me laugh out loud ! I love seeing pics of peoples kids and families and what they are up to on Facebook/Instagram and I figure if no one wants to see what I’m posting they can always remove me! #stayclassymama
