Long post, apologies in advance.
Mrs Doubleu and I have a lovely little boy aged 16 months. As part of preparing for his arrival, we went to NCT prenatal classes. Although the initial classes were a bit hippyish and not as practical as we would have liked, its been good to have a "peer group" going through the same stuff at the same time and we've kept in touch with the other families. It was a good source of advice and support for Mrs Doubleu when off on maternity leave and we had a 1 yr birthday party and picnic over the summer. So far so good...
A lot of the chat / advice is done via a private facebook group and we were all friends on FB. Some of the chat, among the mums, has been about losing "the baby weight." One of the mums has decided to join weight watchers and even posted before and after photos cos she's proud of the weight she's lost. So far, so annoying (but no more annoying that most of the guff on FB... )
This same mum has now set herself a challenge of walking a marathon for a charity of her choosing and publicised this on her FB page and even in our private NCT group page. She overstepped the mark as far I was concerned when she went through alphabetically tagging her friends to recurrent posts about this charity challenge and her progress in training, with comments about people not having donated yet. Mrs Doubleu got tagged first and I said I'd defriend her if she did that to me. She's been up to doubleu in the alphabet now, and tagged me with a "shaming post" and got duly defriended.
Mrs Doubleu has been tagged for a second time. My piss is simmering a little...
Live and let live?
De-friend (and possibly upset the support group)?
Leave FB and go and live in the woods?
