For years, teens and young adults of the Millenial generation thought that in order for their relationships to be real, it had to be “Facebook official.” Now that some of this generation is moving towards using Instagram more than Facebook, it seems that changing your Instagram handle is the new version of the Facebook relationship status.
At least, that’s what we learned when we saw that Hailey Baldwin changed her name on Instagram to Hailey Rhode Bieber and her handle to @haileybieber. After months of rumors of a Bieber-Baldwin secret wedding, it seems she’s finally confirmed that the couple has, indeed, tied the knot.
Earlier that same day, Bieber also posted a photo on Instagram that seemed to confirm the marriage rumors. The photo was captioned, “My wife is awesome.” If that doesn’t put the rumors to rest, we don’t know what will!
People magazine reported that Bieber and Baldwin had a secret wedding back in September after obtaining a marriage license. This came after they announced their engagement to shocked fans and disappointed Jelena supporters over Twitter and Instagram over the summer in July after having dated on and off since 2016. Bieber shared on Instagram, “You are the love of my life Hailey Baldwin and I wouldn’t want to spend it with anybody else. You make me so much better and we compliment eachother [sic] so well. It’s funny because now with you everything seems to make sense!”
In case there was any doubt left at all, Justin posted a photo on Instagram to wish everyone a happy Thanksgiving, with a caption that truly said it all, “Happy late thanksgiving to everyone. First thanksgiving as a married man, first time hosting thanksgiving. First time both sides of the family has come together. Relationships are hard and love itsn’t always easy but thank you Jesus for showing me how!”
40+ Times Mommy Groups on Facebook Shared Useless Advice
Social media is our go-to if we want to share fun little memes or advice. Because of this, a lot of sites like Facebook have groups you can join where people who have similar interests can come together. One of the most popular ones is mom groups. These communities allow moms to vent and what we witnessed was so useless and funny, we had to share some of them with you. Enjoy!
When you grow up with a normal name, you always look at other kids with unique names and are a little jealous. However, getting a little too out there can have the opposite effect. So parents, when you are looking for eccentric names, keep that in mind.
This person asked for some suggestions and received an outpour of responses. For us, this was one of our favorite suggestions! Can you imagine what a baby Neon would look like? We certainly can’t because it really shouldn’t exist!
Please Be Kidding
So the question of whether or not to circumcise your child may not seem like one that is still asked, but it most certainly is. This procedure sometimes is done as a religious ceremony and other times, just as a health choice.
While circumcision may be a debate to many, one thing we can all agree on is that it shouldn’t be performed at home by a random person. This seems like a project that deserves a little experience. If not, this could turn into a bad situation quickly!
Watch Your Step
Alright, we don’t judge other parents’ techniques, but when something like this happens, a little bit of common sense goes a long way. Oil is not going to do the trick if your child has a concussion. It might alleviate the pain, but the issue is more internal.
This mother, unsure of what to do, took to social media and asked other moms. Luckily, the moms there seemed more level-headed and suggested that she take the kid to the emergency room.
Trying to Stay Positive
We all have dreams, and sometimes our dreams can only be obtained by making sacrifices. However, when deciding on what to sacrifice, it’s important to make sure that they don’t directly affect others.
In this case, taking from your kid’s college fund just seems a bit irresponsible to us. We are going to try to take the optimistic approach and cross our fingers that this business venture works out. Otherwise, this poor kid is going to have to deal with college debt for some time.
An Oil Obsession
Homeopathic remedies are fine, but like with anything, you can’t force someone to use them. This mom seems to be overly eager with getting her son to use oils.
Let’s play a fun little game of trying to count the number of times this woman used the word “oils” in her Facebook post. Are you done counting? We won’t reveal the answer in case you’re still in the process, but it is safe to say that this woman is oil-obsessed.
Out of Body
Many people have talked about having out-of-body experiences when they have been a part of a tragic event or accident. In fact, there are so many stories about it that it is sure to be real.
Out of Body
But what is so interesting here is how this woman remembers her experience from such a young age. What sparked this woman to such a story? We’re intrigued to know more about this.
The mind can play tricks on a person when they are thinking about their significant other’s past. So, when there is a child from a previous relationship that is part of your life, it can trigger insecurities.
But this woman seems like she is being overly sensitive and borderline crazy. Let the poor guy boost his precious girl’s confidence! We are sure that it has nothing to do with his ex and everything to do with his love for his daughter.
Most of the time, when you start to talk about your kid, you want to brag about their accomplishments. You know… they are so smart, they are so talented and such! Usually, that’s what we expect from moms so imagine our surprise when we saw this post.
They all seem to be acknowledging the knowledge their kids don’t have. As much as we understand that it’s totally normal to be concerned about the progression of your child, we don’t agree with where it’s being voiced. If the talked about children happen to see this, they would be most upset.
Like Mother, Like Daughter
Every parent has the right to raise their kid the way they see fit, but it should be done with graciousness and respect. There are people out there that don’t believe in vaccines or using medications. This could be due to religious or ideological reasons.
However, sharing this on social media is opening up the door for some very lively and possible mean debates. Unless this person is in the mood for some backlash and a surplus of comments, we suggest they steer clear of the great vaccine debate.
Bad Moms Club
The Corona Virus has shaken the world as we know it and continues to do so. While it may be “nothing more than a cold” to some, to others it can be life-threatening. This is why we have to be so careful about spreading the virus and affecting others.
While this mom wasn’t offering her advice here but rather using this platform as somewhat of a confessional, we chose to include this to shed some light on how irresponsible adults can be. Nails and lunch over a sick child? Come on!
If you type in underwear or bikinis into your search bar on any given online store, you are bound to see images of women in exactly that. It is not considered inappropriate but rather expected if that’s what you are looking to purchase.
So, when we saw this mother’s rant of a post about how she wants to boycott Target because the photos were showing too much skin, we were caught off-guard. This woman needs to take a chill pill and reel it in.
This seems like an odd thing to share with a Facebook group. How they even got on this topic would be interesting to know. Did someone comment on their five o’clock shadow? If so, then maybe they just need to work on their shaving routine.
According to a comment received on this post, being fed baby formula may be the cause of thickened facial hair… We’re shaking our heads and shrugging our shoulders over this one. Thanks to these women, facial hair will never be the same for us!
There are a lot of different bits of advice out there. Some of them are good, tried, and tested. While others are more on the ‘huh’ side.
This woman shares the advice she was given by a mother with three kids. Quite frankly, we don’t care how many kids this other woman had, this piece of advice is downright unhygienic and gross. Don’t spread this!
Get Your Facts Straight
No matter what online group you are part of, you will always find that one village idiot who speaks out of sheer ignorance. It’s just something that is bound to happen and at this point, we are learning to embrace it!
So, responding to the said dummy by telling him/her that they win the “Stupidest comment on the internet” is not going to solve anything except maybe make this person feel bad about themselves. Rather just politely correct them and move on to better things.
Buy, Sell, Steal!
Remember when your mom told you” honesty is the best policy?” Well, we still stand by this statement but not if you plan to admit to potential crimes via social media.
On top of talking about stealing gifts, she then gave out her phone number and other personal information. Now, if something does go down, everyone will know how to find this person. She definitely takes the cake for being the worst probable criminal.
Not How That Works
So there are basic rules when it comes to the whole procreation process. Unfortunately, it seems that some schools haven’t really covered it well, and as a result kids grow into adults who have a lot of missing foundational knowledge.
Just to clarify to anyone out there who is still confused, though you can have relations during pregnancy, there is already someone inhabiting the uterus. This means that you can’t get pregnant when you are already pregnant. Case closed!
Throughout the centuries, there have been some remedies that have come into being through superstitions and lack of understanding of science. Though we are all pretty modern nowadays, some of these still exist and continue to be passed down.
This one with the sock and egg seems to be pretty popular amongst the mommy groups, and though we can’t say it doesn’t work, it just sounds super sketchy to us.
When children misbehave, it is the parent’s job to correct them and even punish them if need be. However, it is important that the punishment given is fair and constructive. After all, kids don’t deserve to be left scarred.
As it turns out, some parents prefer the tough love approach with a touch of cruelty. This mother here is so steadfast in teaching her kid a lesson that she’s evenly willing to ruin Christmas for her son. Take it down a few notches, lady!
A Soy-Riddled World
Times changes and along with that so too does fashion. While we can understand why people from an older generation may not be okay with how some dress today, what we don’t understand is the reasons this commenter provided us with.
How soy or tofu has affected the ability of parents to manage their children’s fashion choices seems a little… crazy. Last we checked, tofu was a great substitute for vegans and vegetarians and has nothing to do with Satan.
Say No to Halloween
Everyone has a right to their own religious practices and beliefs. So, with that being said, denouncing other people’s beliefs on social media can lead to some pretty epic battles.
Whatever happened to love thy neighbor!? These overly-opinionated people need to get off their high horses, take a chill pill, and let everyone else have their fun!
What’s in Pizza?
We are not sure what this mom is trying to insinuate, but it doesn’t sound good. It is perfectly normal for kids to be acting rambunctious and energic post-pizza. It’s one of the most delicious food choices out there and has the ability to turn people’s frowns upside down.
So with that in mind, we understand why three people responded with the laughing emoji when they saw this post. We too would laugh because it’s an absolutely mindless and silly thing to write.
New Years Cheer
Everyone has to set goals for themselves, and this woman has quite the laundry list! It seems that she is determined to live her life the way she sees fit, but why post this in a mommy group!? Seems like the move of an attention-seeker, if you ask us.
This would have been acceptable if she asked how to handle the fact her kids didn’t agree with her. Or maybe how to help her kids deal with their personal views. However, it just seems like a rant and a useless one at that.
Rules of Engagement
Passive aggressiveness is the bane of our existence. So, after a very intense and serious argument, maybe stay off of social media for a little bit. That way you won’t be tempted to make snarky posts like this one.
While we know that in most cases, the parent knows more and therefore is right, that is not the case here. This mother needs some education on acceptance and maybe a time-out from Facebook. Don’t you agree?
Age Is Just a Number
When kids are young, it seems that parents like to count their age in months for just a little too long. This could be a controversial opinion, but we believe that once they have made it a full cycle around the sun, they should be called a year old.
This is exactly what this person was trying to say with the meme here. However, criticizing young parents is a recipe for disaster so let the debate begin!
There are a lot of preconceived notions about what is meant for a girl and what is more suited for a boy. It doesn’t matter if it’s a color, clothing or different toys. The only thing that truly matters is what you think.
But if you ask for advice, you are going to have to sift through a storm of it. So, when we saw this post that asks whether a kitchen set is “too girly” for boys, we knew what was coming…
Your Presence Is a Present
Teachers are lifesavers and the lifeblood of the future. They spend time with your child and guide them into adulthood almost as much as parents do. So, do they deserve a gift every now and then?
Well, that’s entirely up to you, but there’s certainly no harm to it. Truthfully, it doesn’t even have to be big. Just something that shows your appreciation. As for this feisty commenter here, we would also join the angry emoji group if we were in this group.
Off the Wall Names
Ask, and you shall receive. When you are looking for the right name for your child, it can be a challenging process. You want to make it unique but also not so unique that people would easily mispell or mispronounce it.
We strongly feel that majority of these names are previously what this soon-to-be-mom didn’t want. What’s more off the wall than naming your child Thelonious or Sycamore? Side note: we’re very into Sky or Raine.
Fish Tank of Toys
Sometimes you just can’t get rid of things because you have become attached to them. But if your kid sees that, then they may pick up the habit too. This results in a house that is filled with a bunch of hoarders.
This fish tank is a good example of knowing when it is time to get your Marie Kondo on and start minimizing your stuff. For those of you who are unsure as to who she is – she is a famous organizing consultant. Check out one of her many books on organization!
Each to Their Own
Who else is intrigued as to know what number one was? Anyway, what even was the purpose of this post? Each parent has the right to raise their kids with whatever beliefs they want, but why do you have to post about it?
To us, this post just seems pretty useless. Unless, of course, you are trying to start a long debate on whether those values are what makes for a good parent.
The Great Vaccine Debate
There are some things in life that are just inevitable. The sun will shine, taxes will have to be paid and moms will argue over the safety of vaccines. So, when it comes to this debate we’ve pretty much heard it all.
That was until we saw that this mom was seeking for factual evidence to prove that vaccines cause autism. Wait, what? We are as confused as you, if not more. Where do people come up with some of this stuff? We’re gonna have to stamp this one with a ‘fake news’ imprint.
Don’t Look or Touch
It is hard to know the boundaries of interaction when it comes to strangers. It is normal for people who see a cute baby and want to interact with them in one way or another. Whether that is to make faces or to actually talk to them.
But unfortunately, there is a level of concern you need to have in this world. You have to figure out that balance on your own as it is related to what you are most comfortable with.
There are a lot of moms out there that prescribe to using homeopathic remedies for everything. This is a naturalistic approach, and there is nothing wrong with that. But some of the recipes can seem a little long, odd and complexed for us.
Not sure we would call it wizardry, but we can see why some might feel that way. With that being said, maybe just give it a try! You might even surprise yourself.
No Debate Necessary
There are just some posts out there that make absolutely no sense. Or maybe they seem to answer their own question like this one. Having documentation is important in so many different ways, and this person even has a list of them.
But even still, this mother is reluctant to buy in. If you’re not going to take other people’s views into consideration, why even make a post? Seems like a waste of time to us.
Advice From Karen
When there is something wrong with your kid, you might want to consult a physician, not your local Facebook mommy group. However, when this woman was concerned about her daughter being in pain, she chose the latter approach.
Everyone has the same advice, that is until this Colloidal silver enthusiast slid into the conversation. The answer was obvious, so instead of wasting time, just take your kid to the doctor. Oh yeah, and don’t listen to the woman with the prescription of silver.
Sometimes moms post on groups to get some support. You know, to make sure that they aren’t the only one that goes through certain struggles. Things like having to work triple time after taking a sick day definitely deserve some recognition.
This mom has opted to do this in the form of a meme, and we have no doubt that it was shared multiple times. Everyone reading this, remember to be extra grateful for all the selfless things our mothers do for us!
Late Night Cravings
Look, some days are rough, and the only way to make them better is to hit that pantry hard while everyone else is sleeping. So we really can’t blame this mother for having a sweet tooth.
The only comment we have is a mere suggestion – next time you want to commit the crime of eating your child’s chocolate eggs, try to replace the box before anyone finds out!
Tell Me More
It must be hard to be a mom. You have to listen to long and often boring stories that have no plotline or exciting ending. On top of that, you have to act as if you really care. It is kind of like being a Hollywood actress at all times.
Now that we think more about this, there really should be an award show out there catered for all the moms. After all, who deserves accolades and trophies more than them?
Just Do It!
There are so many chores that come into your life when you become a mother. Some of those chores lack any glamor and are actually straight-up gross. For example, doing the laundry for little ones who haven’t been potty trained doesn’t seem like a walk in the park.
So we understand why this mom would have this conflicting conversation with herself. With that being said, she should probably keep her inner dialogue to herself, as opposed to sharing it for the world to see.
There are these tropes that many parents like to keep up. From the Easter Bunny to the Tooth Fairy, we like to let kids believe in magic and that anything is possible. However, sometimes we forget to be sneaky about it.
In those situations, you may end up being caught in the act and ruining your child’s beliefs. Then what do you do? We suggest following this woman’s lead and posting the story on a mommy Facebook group for our enjoyment.
Working Out the Punchline
So everyone talks about dad humor, but what about mom humor? It exists, and sometimes it is funnier than you might think. Of course, that is after it has been refined. That may be what this woman was trying to do.
You know, throw it out there and get some input on whether it works or not. It seems like a mommy Facebook group might be just the place to do this. And FYI to the woman who wrote this, your joke needs a lot of work.
Trying to teach your kids how to express their emotions constructively is challenging. Sometimes that means you may have to enlist a professional for help. Such was the case for this poster.
Is it just us or are most of the emotions shown here more on the angry side? While we understand that we all have bad days, we want to see more smiles and fewer frowns. Someone should tell this kid that being angry will cause more wrinkles later on in life!
Bugs Over Pizza
Kids don’t use logic a lot of the time. In fact, oftentimes their rationalization doesn’t make any sense, and when parents realize that, it makes raising them a lot easier.
This girl would rather eat bugs than pizza! To us, that is so bizarre that it’s unfathomable. Don’t all kids love pizza!? Maybe the mom should just ask her why? Maybe her reasoning will make sense! Or not, who knows with kids these days, right?
What’s in This?
So there is something really wrong with these parents. We have heard of moms or dads not being able to cook well, but this seems like they are setting themselves up for failure. Oh yeah, and it’s extremely gross.
Whoever told this parent this tidbit of advice must have been joking, right? But the fact that they took them at face value and implemented this, is squarely on these parent’s shoulders. Gross!
Learning to Tell Time?
Raising kids is hard work, so sleep is a commodity when you become a mom. So it is very understandable that this mom didn’t want to get up before her alarm went off. Then again, maybe the kid is her alarm.
In this situation, we think we would also take the time to teach our kids a little about telling the time. That way, maybe this won’t happen again and Mama can get her beauty sleep.
Egg in a Sock
When parents are going through the teething phase, they will try anything to get their little ones to sleep. That includes some pretty strange folk remedies. You know, like the egg in the sock over the door?
If this strange remedy sounds familiar that’s because this isn’t the first mom who you’ve heard it from. We never knew about this method before entering mom groups. It’s amazing what you can learn from them!
