Overlooked and offended?

Yesterday, Max did something clever/funny/adorable. My first reaction was "Hey, I'm going to write about that on my blog!"
One of the other children (I forget which one) said "Why do you only write about Max? You never write about us!"

So I pointed out a few things.

#1. Max does some pretty darn adorable stuff. They did cute stuff when they were his age too but, alas, I didn't have a blog then and that was a really long time ago, and I can't really remember all the cute stuff that they did.
#2. They don't like it when I write about stuff they do that I find amusing, mostly because if I find it amusing, it's probably something potentially embarrassing for them.

Even though I explained the situation thoroughly, they still felt rather put out that I haven't written about them in a while.

Today, something funny happened with one of the kids and I really wanted to blog about it because, seriously, it was darn funny.
The child involved freaked out and said there was no way that they would be OK with me blogging about this particular situation. The freaking out was so intense, that I'm not even able to say on my blog which of my offspring was involved.

However, nothing was said about Facebook..............

Yeah, their is a flip side to fame. Maybe you could give your blog over to your kids once so they could write about themselves.

I have a feeling that they wouldn't go for it.

That is so funny! I sat one night with a notebook and wrote down what my older kids said during game night. When they realized what I was doing the freaked out and said you cant put it on the blog. I did anyway but you are right...Facebook has no rules!

Yes, please humiliate them on Facebook. That's why it was invented. For public mocking.

My kids aren't quite old enough yet to care... well wait. I think the oldest really would care. But the little ones are still fair game.

Darned if you do. Darned if you don't.

Max didn't get his funnyism's all on his own - please blog all the other funny stuff his siblings do!

Humiliation…I have a friend who accidentally left her blogger account open and her teenage son decided to write a post. Luckily, he admitted that there was nothing he could think of to post at the time.

His mom said that he was lucky because she could have done much worse…
