Why You Should Think Twice Before Writing This Facebook Status

AprilFools

April First is tomorrow and there is always that woman who thinks it’s funny to announce that she is pregnant when she really is not. This use to offend me when I was struggling to get pregnant or after I gave birth to twins at 20 weeks and shortly passed away. It doesn’t so much any more but there are millions of women out there who struggle with infertility, miscarriages and stillbirths. Being pregnant holds this sacred awesomeness to it and is even more miraculous when you’ve beaten all the odds.

Imagine reading some one’s status “I have ______ cancer.” only to find out later it was a cruel april fool’s joke just to get a little attention. What a mockery and slap in the face to those who are battling cancer or those who have lost loved ones to cancer.

So tomorrow I might stay signed out of Facebook because I probably can’t believe anything I read. What happened to good fun old fashioned pranks? Below are a few links for pranks for the stay at home moms to play on their kids and the working moms to play on their co-workers.

P.S. If you are pregnant CONGRATS but maybe wait a day or two to make it “Facebook Official”

P.P.S. If you do pull a prank on your kids or co workers feel free to share on Facebook, Instagram or Twitter (@ohsomom #ohsomom)

    I know some people will say that you should just stop being offended over something that wasn’t directed towards you in the first place. But the way I see it, even if people don’t find it offensive, they also don’t find it funny. So is it really worth the risk of hurting one of your friends you may not have known was hurting, all so your other friends can roll their eyes at your lack of creativity? I don’t think so.
