My Not So Facebook Life

Standard

I was talking to a friend this week. (You’ll figure out who you are in a minute!) She said she just doesn’t know how I do it, taking care of five children! I replied with a sigh “it is so crazy at our house!” She looked at me with a mixture of surprise and confusion, and says, “you know it’s funny how Facebook can give such a picture of your life, like it’s just all nice and peaceful all the time!” Or something like that.

Ha! The Facebook Illusion! You know what I’m talking about, don’t act like you don’t! Everyone posts all these details of their life in there, for the whole world to see! But only the good moments, right? You do, after all, want everyone to think you have the perfect life, right? We do it without even thinking about it! You don’t want to post the crazy, bad stuff! People might figure out that you’re a normal person, lol.

Like that day you were at the park, and your son, who has been potty trained forever, poops his pants! Or the day one of your kids almost killed one of the others! Or that sometimes your house is NOT spotless! Or about finding a washer full of cheese puffs at midnight, as you’re throwing in a load of whites…

Yeah, that is my Not So Facebook Life 🙂
