Got Instagram*? Do you follow Rihanna..
Me too. And generally I just
overshare post pictures of my kids in lovely filters. Write some nice captions and most of the time tag my family. It's a way of staying connected and generally showing how cute my kids are.
Out of all the celebrities I follow - Rihanna definitely takes the cake. And not because of her over the top, sexualised, crazy life photos she posts, but for a language she has completely made up that make hundreds of people like or double tap!
Don't follow Bad Girl RiRi? Here's a sample and if you can, try and translate her captions.
My niece, who is almost 11 years old is on instagram and I really hope she isn't following her.
Now Bad Girl RiRi and I are of similar age and if I took a leaf from her book, my captions on Instagram would look like this:
Dis stay at heauxm bitch mumma juz got a chop. Hueaxz be balling. #allshorterrthang #kidzbelikewow #heauxmumzlife #iwannabeinParih
At this gosh forsaken hour of the morning, no one hears you scream, nor do they see you roll your eyes into the back of your head as your baby wakes up for the fourth time that night.
This is me. Almost every night. And I can't ignore it as my sons crib is so close to my bed that he can reach over and pull my hair.
Unfortunately at this time of morning the compassionate, caring, patient mother is gone and should be sleeping. I pick a fight with a half sleep induced husband and wake everyone up sometimes. So ashamed I am of my behaviour at this hour of the morning that I placate my kids so much in the morning, it's probably not a good thing to do.
Facebook and Diet ads.
When I sit down to look at Facebook, I generally am eating something or drinking a caffeinated drink. Most likely not the best thing for me as well but hey it's my treat for the day.
What I hate most about this time is when I am bombarded with Diet Ads telling me the lastest diet that will make me feel 100% better and I will be successful and complete as a woman.
I generally want to punch the screen and yell a big FARK OFF but I know that would be inappropriate with children around.
It'll be a good day when we stop building the foundations of our self esteem and self worth based on how good we look in a bikini and how much fat we lost post baby.
Unfortunately this will leave you scratching your head. But I discovered my eldest, who is only two, has Nits. I saw the live critters crawling and I basically panicked! I may or may have not traumatised the both of us during the process of extraction. Guess I should start putting a money aside for his therapy when his older.
After this photo was taken, I stroked my sons hair and discovered the critters.
And that my friends, has me ranting and raving for the week and has me seeing fifty shades of peeved-ness.
Head over to Robo Mum who is hosting The Lounge this week. I'm sure you'll find some hilarious posts that will certainly test how strong your pelvic floors, are.
