Fairly Odd Mother

Frantically waving my magic wand to make wishes come true.

Be my friend?

I have a secret: if I like you, and you tell me I should try something, I probably will unless it will make me bleed or scream in terror.

So, when Her Bad Mother said that she loved a community site called Maya's Mom and thought we, her dear readers, should check it out, I did. And got thoroughly confused. I wasn't really sure what this site was or what I'd need to do if I became a member.

I was so confused, I almost just clicked off and ran away. Instead, I created a profile and now have an account on Maya's Mom! My profile is pathetic and puny.

Imagine my surprise when, four hours later, I checked my email and had nine new emails from Maya's Mom members! They were mostly 'shout outs', meaning people just saying 'hi' and 'welcome', which is pleasant enough. But a few were asking me to be their 'friend' and I'm not sure what that means. How much of a commitment is this? What if we do not get along?

Like, what if she thinks that I'm some Uber-Christian because she sees that I homeschool; what happens when she finds out I'm a (gasp) Unitarian Universalist and I homeschool mainly because I don't want to get up early in the morning to get the kids on a school bus. Does she 'unfriend' me?

And, then, what if I get a 'friend' who speaks the language of myspace: Y/K, B4YKI it's all: "CYT!" and "HAK!". I don't know if I could ever unfriend anyone! Oh, the guilt!

Plus, now I have this new website to consider in the context of my week. C'mon kids, say something cute NOW! I need to update my page!

Oh, Maya's Mom, I hope we can work this out.

That is too funny! It kind of reminds me of grade school "do you like me? Check "yes" or "no"."

I haven't heard of Maya's Mom, but I'm not sure I can join any more mom communities. I just can't keep up!!!

Very much unrelated, but thank you for your post about my dad (and all your posts - will you be my friend? :-). I'm sorry about your dad. That answering maching must be a killer.

I personally commend you for your stance "just say no to school busses". I was up at dawn to get mine ready for the bus. DEFINITELY a perk in my book! LOL and by the way. will you be my friend? LOL

Oh, we can, we can work it out! I'm glad to hear that people welcomed you, but if your dance card is full, feel free to make yourself private. If you need any help, please let me know. We need a few more odd people around!

I haven't the faintest idea what Maya's Mom is, but as an actual real life Maya's Mom my curiosity is now peaked. Off to go check it out...

heh. I like MM, it isn't as annoying (nor as big) as most boards.

You're another UU homeschooler in my state - we have to meet up sometime!

Hilarious!

I now feel a little better about admitting I clicked there too and had no idea what was going on. I'll count on you to fill me in.
