Real Or Fake: Motivational Parenting Memes

By  | 

Because you all had so much fun with the Sanctimommy status updates and guessing if they were real or fake that Koa made you, we have decided to play Round Two, but this time with simpy sweet motivational parenting drivel you can find all over social media. Your job is to guess if someone actually posted this garbage, or if through the powers of an editing program I made it for you. Are you ready to play Real or Fake? Let’s do this!

1: Self Esteem Buckets

Fakeorama. I made this shiz, and I may have felt a lil’ bit pukey after doing so.

Fake. I made this, and it’s cheesy as hell, but I bet if you posted it on Facebook, you would get a whole pile of “likes.”

EVERYONE IS WRONG! The quote is real, by Olivia Newton John (Hee hee) but the image is fake because I have seen so many stupid motivational things of a latte with a heart that I just couldn’t resist.

And, as a BONUS, I made this one for all of your Facebooks using some of my favorite Mommyish things and reader quotes!
