Oh my gawd, I should just delete my Facebook RIGHT NOW! I am so sick and tired of seeing my families superficial and sometimes passive aggressive shit!
My mother, who I have not spoken to IRL since she told me she was "praying" that her vaccines would not cause her to get extremely ill. Has started posting almost daily updates on when "her grandbaby" is coming. I hate each post. I am never tagged in them and they are all about her! "6 1/2 days until holiday vacation. 10 1/2 days until my grandbaby's due date." No, it's my due date! I am the one delivering this baby. He isn't just arriving through UPS!
My aunt on the other hand knows how to show her excitement while not making my skin crawl with posts like... "I can't wait to meet my grand-nephew. He is going to be a light of my life just like is momma was and still is. (My name tagged) and (my So's name tagged) are both going to make wonderful parents and it is going to be such a blessing to celebrate with them." So I commented on this post and within SECONDS my mom replied "have you seen what I posted?" Yes, I did but because it expressly had nothing to do with me, I had nothing to say.
The only things I do get tagged in are stupid Buzzfeed videos and overly shared comics of cartoon babies hugging cartoon freaking bladders. I swear, if I get another parody music video that replaces one word with "preggo" I am going to explode. I have my privacy settings so that I have to approve of things before they post to my wall, so these things never make the cut. Hours later I get texts from her asking if I saw the thing she posted and how odd it is its not making it onto my wall. She is not savvy enough to know what I am doing, especially because her "throwback" pics of me and my siblings I do allow through.
rabble rabble rabble. I am hormonal and maybe some of this is an overreaction, but g'damn!
