And Then, He Said It…

Gabriel and Camila with Social Medina
I know it is not breaking news to any of you the fact that my adorable kids argue. From the moment they wake up to the moment they go to sleep, they argue.
Arguments over the smallest things like who takes the first sip of juice even when I serve them at the same time. Sometimes they don’t even know why they are argue. But then again, that you already know. I’ve written about this issues before but nothing like this. Yesterday Gabriel and Camila’s arguing escalated to a point I never thought it could. As they were fighting about who was getting the bathtub and who was getting the shower, I heard something I never thought I would hear. apparently Gabriel ran out of mean things to say to Camila and then, he said it. Camila in a panic marinated scream says to me; “MAAAMI, GABRIEL SAID HE IS NOT GOING TO FOLLOW ME ON INSTAGRAM”
When did social media become the way we measure how popular or liked we are? Why is the fact that Gabriel won’t follow her on instagram so threatening to her? Why does he feel so empowered by his prerogative? Has our ability to relate, communicate and impact others, been reduced to a number of followers?
Although these questions were in my mind all I could answer was; “Here is a snapchat for both of you, if you don’t stop fighting I’m going to un-follow both you.”
Who has the upper hand now? CHEERS!

til next time,

    Cynthia, my old friend, I’m so happy to see you blogging again. I missed you! I’ve been meaning to swing by your blog, but it’s been crazy lately. I don’t know if you’ve heard, but I’m expecting my third baby. Eeek! 🙂
    In any case, you bring up a startling fact about social media. It seems that so much of our self worth has been reduced to numbers. That’s why I still refuse to get on Facebook. I’m too scared! As for your babies, hopefully this will pass and they will come to realize that instagram or not, they are deeply loved!

      Hilarious. I was expecting the standard “I wish you were never born” kind of thing. This is their best argument since the “No I’M going to save Mami and make her live forever” session. Love your response 🙂
