I was going through the camera roll on my phone the other day to delete pictures and make room for more when I discovered a number of photos BB has taken. They’re photos that I wouldn’t dream of posting on Instagram or Facebook, photos that haven’t been posed for or styled or had a nice flattering filter applied (Instagram can hide a multitude of sins).
My first instinct was to delete them, but as my finger hovered over the delete button I realised these are the photos I should be posting, the ones straight from the front line of parenting that show what’s REALLY going on. The living room that looks like a bomb’s hit it, messy beds, me looking like a bomb has hit me.
So for your entertainment, in no particular order, here are are 5 photos I will never post on social media (but probably should):
Asleep on duty while breast feeding Little B with Misery Guts looking gormless in the background. Nice.
Drunk Tipsy on duty (in my defence it was my sister’s 30th). Misery Guts says I’m so drunk tipsy I don’t even look like me.
Another breast feeding shot. There are rather a lot of these.
Not sure what was going on here, but it wasn’t long after Little B had been born and my milk had just come in. I think I may actually have Facebooked this one, and received friend requests from some rather odd people – which is another reason for not posting such pictures on social media.
So there we have it – a snapshot of what really goes on behind my Instagram feed.
Are you guilty of cherry picking your social media pictures? Or do you show it how it is?
