What happens when Parents are on Facebook

So the other day I was sitting on my back porch (which overlooks our super tiny fenced in backyard) while Phoenyx played in the grass. Because the porch is raised up, my view of him isn’t direct when he is running around, although he is 10 feet from me.

At many points during the day, I play with my phone.

Don’t judge me. 

But as I sat there playing on my Facebook app the sound of silence became apparent.

You know its bad when the sound of silence is deafening in suburbia.

I stood up.

Oh. Man.




Before you ask, the band aid was simply decoration. He likes to wear them for no reason. He had that one on for days.


I would say I totally deserved this for playing on my phone, but the truth is it gave me something to Facebook.

Well played, Phoenyx!

Hi, y'all! If you got this far, awesome . I am assuming you want to know more about me. I am a *cough* 36 year old mom of 2 great kids, 6 rescue animals and proud wife of my high school sweetheart. This blog is my outlet and allows me to pretend I am a kid at heart. I get to play with glitter and glue, eat lots of sweets (its for the blog, I swear!) and connect with readers and friends. As a blogger I love to share with you- so the rundown is that I am currently reading this, using these for calmer bedtimes, giving away this, and suggesting here if you ever wanted to be a blogger yourself.

  1. How funny! (If it happened with my kid, I wouldn’t be laughing, but I LOVE seeing this.) I can imagine my own son doing this exact same thing. Thanks for sharing. And yes, I play on my iPhone all the time (Instagram, FB, Twitter, Pinterest, and Tumblr)…

  2. He’s always getting into something lol. Luckily, he’s super cute, I bet that wasn’t fun to clean!

  3. Hey, P is a natural blonde like me, so he was just making sure he had lots of sunblock to keep his fair skin covered, LOL! Oh, man, P always cracks me up. It’s the sheer, unbridled joy on his face while he innocently causes chaos.

  4. A friend was just telling me that she put her TV away for summer and she won’t be on her phone while her kids are awake. She wants to spend the summer building relationships with her kids. I respect her decision, I wouldn’t be able to do it!

    Luckily, my kids haven’t done anything too crazy while I’ve checked my phone!!
