Anatomy of an Oversharer

It’s been a very lite week of blogging for me, probably the lightest ever, which makes me so sad that I could just cry, but I promise that next week will be different. Next week will be a shimmering fairyland of angry parents, sanctimommies, and even a disgusting Tease & Reveal because THAT is how much I owe you guys for being so absent. Hell, I owe it to myself to go balls-out with posts next week, if only because I feel a hole in my heart when I don’t measure up to my typical blogging form.

In the meantime, please check out my column on Mommyish this week about oversharing about labor and delivery. I know we fully covered this territory on the blog on Monday, but I didn’t get a chance to link to the Mommyish post, so I hope you guys will still give it a whirl. To really drive home the point, and to showcase just how quickly status updates can devolve after a woman goes into labor and has a baby, I’ve compiled a series of (small) screenshots written by a gal named Andi. Andi promptly updated her friends when she was dilating and going into labor, and then POOF! A healthy, precious baby made her entrance into this world, and Andi’s updates went straight to Nastytown. Read on to get a sense of what many people seem to experience after a friend has a baby. Those last nine months of baby cookin’ were all leading up to this…
