I’ve noticed recently on good old facecrap new parents posting pics of there lovely little munchkins all looking perfect and themselves looking perfectly groomed.
Don’t get me wrong I’m guilty as charged for posting pics of max but I really do think oh my God fuck off.
Being a parent is more than putting cutesy pictures on social media. Where’s the real life pics that’s what I want to know.
Where’s the pics of the sleep deprived mother living in her pj’s with unbrushed hair ( this was totally how I lived for the first 3 months).
Being there for your kid is being there for the sleepless nights and the shitty nappies. It’s cuddling your baby till they fall asleep and making sure their feed,watered and generally kept alive.
I think we could all do with a facebook reality check.
I will absolutely post some pics on here of myself looking slightly deranged just to prove my point.
I say have no shame in reality it’s just as good as the fantasy some try to project.
*just to add, if anyone is feeling offended by my post it’s not meant to be judging any one mother or father. It’s merely my opinion. I have also edited my comment about being a good parent to just parent I was not trying to suggest that parents that look fantastic or post cute pictures of there kids are bad parents*
