Facebook Daddies – noun. – “fathers” who only post pictures of them & their kids on Facebook just for show i.e. LIKES & Comments while they STILL owe child support & STILL start drama with their Baby Mamas behind the scenes. They say “a picture is worth a thousand words” BUT always being “there” for your child is PRICELESS.

FB Post: Okay, I’m getting a pedicure & in walks a Mama w/ her 3 year old daughter. The Nail Lady says hello to the little girl & addresses her by name. She says, “What color do you want today?” SO, I have to ask, How old would you let your daughter START getting her nails/feet done? AND how often????????
“Crazy” Baby Mamas’ Comment: Sorry, Mamas but I may get “virtually” beat up on this topic and I may be a little old school but my daughter is 10 years old and I refuse to get her hooked in expecting to get mani/pedi’s at a young age. YES, I agree with teaching her to take pride in her appearance heck I taught her to never leave home without a pair of earrings on because it “enhances’ her beauty but it’s okay if she forgets to. Just Love Herself the way she is. I don’t want her to believe that she needs superficial things like weaves, fake nails, eyelashes, etc to MAKE her feel beautiful. She IS beautiful in her NATURAL state and going to get her nails done is not the way to teach her that. I just believe sometimes we as mothers teach our girls the poor self image that we have about ourselves. Example, if your daughter is overweight & telling her not to eat too much because you don’t like YOUR body image instead of teaching her to love herself the way she is and introducing a “fit” lifestyle. We can’t get sucked in by the media’s standard of beauty & impose our own self-hate onto our daughters whether we know it or not. There’s a big difference with giving your daughter Grooming tips vs Beauty Tips. Just sayin’ (Maxx)

(43 day, 322 more days to go) What happened to my radio?
Glancing over my collection of 200+ CD case I can’t help but to remember the feeling I had when I purchased each one. Now with iTunes and other online music stores where you can download your music, don’t you think it takes away from the excitement of ripping the plastic seal off your brand new CD. What about your photo album that’s now replaced with an online gallery of all your precious photographs? If you want to show off your child’s kindergarten graduation picture, you’re forced to whip out your iPhone and scroll through the thousands of saved pictures just to locate it. Leaving the person standing there probably annoyed waiting to glance at the picture which will probably take about five seconds.
It’s great to see the advancement of technology but when you start to mess with things like choosing the sex of your baby then you’ve crossed the line. The natural course to having a child is now being manipulated by those Biologists portraying themselves as a Higher Human Being. The joy of parenthood is being ripped from us as well.
So for now, I’ll keep my CD case, photo album, Polaroid camera, and VCR player as long as I can. Fifty years from now I’ll share it with my grandkids who will probably wonder what the heck was a Facebook.
