Misunderstandings

Are you on facebook?
I am.
Most of the time it is enjoyable.
I have made contact with long lost relatives and friends, distant cousins and my childhood best friend.
I know things about people like what they ate for breakfast and how many children they have and where in the world they are now.
My favorite part of facebook is seeing the new babies.
I'm not going to lie, I may have a few extra babies because my friends are constantly posting photos of beautiful toes and fingers and pudgy legs and my ovaries just can't take it.
I start thinking baby again and then I start speaking my mind.
Pretty soon Mr Bird caves and the next thing we know we have another sweet baby to hold and cuddle and kiss.
I LOVE it!
But once in a while facebook has it's drama.
I could go on and on about facebook drama, but I will not.
I learned really fast to keep it light.
I can not post about politics or religion or even nutrition.
Which is totally fine with me, I understand and accept that we all have our own points of view and ideas and standards.
Facebook is not the place to debate such life topics.
That being said, a funny thing happened yesterday.
It was a misunderstanding of the funniest sort.
You know how sometimes when a friend posts a comment on a photo, it will show the photo on their wall for all of their friends to see, regardless of weather or not those friends even know who the original poster of the photo even is, or not?
Well, yesterday my sweet cousin posted a picture of her positive pregnancy test.
Naturally I commented and congratulated her.
Well, that comment put her photo on MY wall.
I had several people comment face to face to me about the photo and offer their congratulations to me on my soon to be new baby.
It took me a while to realize exactly what had happened.
But once I did, I just laughed!
So no, I am not expecting, although I have to say I would not be terribly sad if I were.
So here's to facebook!
I love all of my virtual friends, along with the real ones that I see and talk to in real life!
