An Australian blogger who is also a mom and also very popular on Facebook, Sophie Cachia, posted a photo celebrating her lack of privacy as a mother. Her photo appears to be, as she puts it, a "standard cute photo" of her and her kid. It is, but it's also taken on the toilet.
To the naked eye, this looks like your standard cute photo of Bobby & I. This photo was in fact captured whilst I was taking a poo. Just thought I'd let you all know. Especially for all those planning on having children soon. This. Is. Your Life. Goodnight.
(And what better way to celebrate a photo about privacy than by sharing it on Facebook, a place where we've been joyfully eviscerating it for over a decade?)
If you don't have a child, the sentiment may shock you a little bit. But many of the internet commenters—a notoriously compassionate people—didn't seem the least bit surprised. That's because Cachia's fans are parents themselves, and this kind of thing makes sense to them.
Ok yes, one of the top four commenters took the time to say "Very weird," but she also followed that up with "Good luck to you, though."
So all in all, people understand this behavior, and to an extent they celebrate it. Very weird. Good luck, though.
Happy pooping, new parents!
