FaKebook Friday — A Blessed Moment

please put the stick down


A quick recap/definition of FaKebook Friday:

On FaKebook Friday I give an example of a FaKebook vs a Real Life version of the same story or in this case… photo, essentially mocking the way we all have a tendency to put a spin on the things we share on Facebook.

FaKebook is the version of the story/photo you want everyone to see or know and Real Life is the version that you don’t really share for whatever reason.

[Real Life]

I was just trying to get some writing done when I noticed the kids were being particularly cute, I was feeling blessed, and wanted to share.

Me: Hey guys! Look over here, you are being so cute and I am having a moment.

Them: But mooooom, we are racing.

Me: Just smile, real quick! Will one of you help sis?


Me: Brady put down the stick and help your sister.


Me: I have such a great angle with the key board and the screen… just stand still and smile. You guys look so cute!
And would you please put down the stick?


Me: For the love! Help your sister up!
(Not sure I am still feeling all blessed and whatnot anymore.)

Brady! The stick!


Me: Annnnd, she’s down.
(Great, there goes the moment. Doesn’t quite caption the same when people are hysterically screaming.)



Me: Fine. Can you at least just look in this general direction. ugh


Brady runs over…

Brady: Can I see the pictures?

Me: Ya, sure.

Brady: Man, that stick looks SWEET!

Me: What’s the deal with the stick?

Brady: I just thought it would look cool, like a warrior.

Me: Oh good… yes, that makes perfect sense. I am glad we got it all cleared up.
Me on the inside: AHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!! and I wonder why the storage on my phone is always full.

Don’t me wrong, I know I am blessed with the life I live and I am super grateful. Just thought it was funny how much work it can be to “capture” it.

If you can handle more of my Facebook humor, here are some ways to connect with me and get your dose of “real” via the old WWW…


Also, I know your email box is sacred and you have worked ever so diligently to protect it like a mother bird protecting her young…  but I really think you should leave your email address in the subscribe bar.

I cross my heart I won’t abuse being including in your circle of trust… I won’t spam you, I won’t sell your information, I just don’t want you to miss a thing!
