I admit it… I’m not just a meddlesome mom. I’m a VERY meddlesome mom!!! :(( Thank God I have been blessed with wonderful kids who forgive me over & over again every time I cross the boundaries! <3
A week ago, I noticed a name that kept cropping up in all my pictures in facebook. Liking & commenting. Liking & commenting. Never ending, I tell you. So, I made it my life’s mission to find out who this person was! I finally found the culprit. It was my 13-year-old son’s “FB friend”. So, without his permission, I made the cardinal sin of BLOCKING her from his facebook! (My kids trusted me with their passwords because I log into their accounts for gaming purposes –I send myself gifts!!! I know, I know!! I didn’t have the right to do that. Too late the hero!!! @_@ )
Okay, so going back to this girl. I picked up my son from school. I made small talks, then casually said.. Babyson, there’s this Faye Legarda who made you her “brother” in facebook. And she keeps liking my pictures and commenting. I blocked her from your account, okay?
The stalker on the left.. she looks so angelic! I can’t believe she’s the same person
who wrote those nasty inbox messages!! Looks really are deceiving!!! @_@
My son goes ballistic. Mom!!! I met her in our SOP (his school’s outreach program)! We’re going back there this saturday!!! She’s gonna wonder why I blocked her!!! It’s gonna be so awkward coz I logged out the last time we were chatting when she told me she was in love with me!!!
“Patay!” I thought to myself. I meddled (again) & probably got my son into trouble! (again). I tried to pacify him. I calmly said: Oh, okay then just tell her when you go on saturday that I was the one who blocked her coz I didn’t know her.
OMG!!! The girl (who is only 11 years old, mind you!) didn’t like being blocked. My son didn’t have until saturday like I thought! She sent him several messages right away through her other numerous accounts making her displeasure known (in tagalog). “Bakit si blah-blah-blah kilala ba ng nanay mo? Nagsisinungaling ka lang! Aminin mo na! Naiinis ka ba sa akin? blah-blah-blah”. The messages were getting meaner & meaner than the previous ones & they were piling up my son’s inbox already. I told my son to just ignore her & not reply. Oh, and not only that. She starts hounding his other classmates, asking if my son was online & to let him know that she wants to be unblocked!!!
He goes: Mom!!! Do you know how many they are there? I might get beaten up when I go there on saturday!!! You don’t know them! They are the rough kind!!! They’re gonna gang up on me for sure!! (ermm.. i forgot to mention that I made him block the other SOP kids as well!) I’m dead!!!

At this point, I feel like crying already. Oh no, I tell myself. My son is in deep S&*T because of me (again)! I say: Babyson, please don’t get angry na. I’m sorry. Just be absent nalang on saturday. He says he can’t because it’s graded. I ask him if I can go nalang with him. He says NO –with feelings! I ask him if the driver can go with him at least so he has a “bodyguard”. He doesn’t want. I ask him if I can at least talk to his teacher so she can watch out for him. He gives me the evil eye.. I cower…
Shoot! I’ve messed this one up really bad!!! :(( And now I don’t know how to get out of it without my son being a casualty! :'(( I can’t sleep!!
Saturday comes.. my son goes to his SOP.. I’m really worried so I text him. “Babyson! What’s happening?? Are they giving you a hard time?” He replies: “At first they were all cold & giving me the evil eye. But then after we ate & played a little, they warmed up to me & even started hugging me. They even said I love you to me on our way home.”

Pshhhhh!!! What a relief!!! @_@ I’m NEVER EVER messing up with my son’s account ever!! (Or I promise to do my best, at least!! :P )
Moral lesson of the story?? Never give your mom your password, hehehe!! I hope my kids aren’t reading this. Coz this doesn’t apply to you guys! ;P
