Sometimes you just gotta laugh … and look at the positives!!
More Unwritten Rules learned and, there are positive takeaways:
When you miss your old neighbors, don’t like all of their old pictures from years ago and repost them and “like” and comment on them; they will probably block you.
Positive Take Away: She’s learning to read and understand the date and year of posts.
If you want to send your mother a message about how much you love her and miss her, and wish that she was closer to you (even though she’s in the NEXT ROOM) you might want to send that in a “personal message” and not post it on her wall! After all, friends may worry or be concerned that her mother has left her.
Positive Take Away: She’s learning the difference between sending “personal” and “private” messages and what might be appropriate for each.
Don’t send 75 messages a day to one friend.
Positive Take Away: She is learning how much is too much before you start annoying others.
Sharing simple things like Happy Friday to friends is ok, or asking a quick, simple question won’t be offensive. I even provided her a list of question she could post to her friends. HOWEVER, I forgot to say “one question at a time” (she sent my parents and all her friends ALL OF THE QUESTIONS AT ONCE).
Positive Take Away: She learned to cut and paste the copy on Facebook posts on her own!!! Pretty good!
Remember Erma’s saying…
“If you can laugh at it, you can live with it.”
Enjoy this crazy adventure we’re all on; laughing and learning with our kids!
