Yes, having a child is surely the most beautifully irrational act that two people in love can commit. ~Bill Cosby, Fatherhood
I'm not an ambassador for this blog, but if you have free time, please do click the link of STFU Parents.
I forgot the link but I read an article of oversharing among parents in social network which closely related with this blog. The author of the article said that the sharing and oversharing is different but there is a very thin line between sharing and oversharing. I stumbled upon this blog last year but not read it religiously . However in recent months the blogger caught the media attention.
To note, this blog is not another chidlfree blog but it focusing on the trends among parents who over-share everything about parenthood (including the gross one). The blogger is not a mom but she want to be one in the future.
I can never read all entries but this blog is amusing and entertaining. I think that it can become a guide for parents on what to share and what not in social networking sites. I hope the parents do not feel offended by the blog because I, the non-mommy also feel that the child-craze world today is too much. I cannot escape being jugdmental when I saw posts from parents in Facebook/Twitter that said like "My mom is beautiful" or "I cannot accept when people not compliment my child". I have nieces and nephews from husband's side but I think I am an unfriendly aunt. I never coax them if they crying and leave them when they fighting over toys. I know that it is unnatural when I can see faces of my brother or sister in law, which express somewhat like 'Why-never-offer-help' or 'No-motherhood-instinct' look to me but I brush it off by giving 'It's-not-my-child,-they-are-yours' look.
I think the non-mommies like us will have this feeling but we try to think that the oversharing things is a norm. At least we try to. At least I do. But thank God I found another girl feel the same thing, and defend her views.I wish I can buy the blook too. It also a guide to us ,the non-mommies, if we pregnant in the future and become a parent, we should know to filter our thoughts and excitement of parenthood in cyberspace.
