I may be a social media retard but my kids ROCK!!!

Ok I”ll admit, I’m a tad bit retarded when it comes to things like twitter, blogging, and the social media scene as a whole. I guess I don’t know the proper etiquette either, because how I was raised is when someone speaks to you, you are to speak back. When someone ask you a question, you are to answer them. These spawns of the social media won’t even interact with you unless of course your in some social media circle. It is all too reminiscent of high school and the mean girls syndrome. Too bad I don’t do cliques, I didn’t do it then, and this grown woman sure ain’t doing it now. I’ve only been on twitter for about 3 days and already it reeks of childrens banter, mixed in with hints of the great pretenders. I wanted this to be a way for me to connect with my readers, which by the way are non existent at this point. I am so very not desperate, but really am curious as to where my people are at! I have a voice, and I certainly write well enough. So where, o where art thou? Lol… I guess I’m on the short bus when it comes to these things. Oh well, back to my regularly scheduled blog and the subject at hand. I haven’t really taken any pictures of myself. I’ve been really chill this weekend, so I will devote this time to the kiddies fashions. They are so cute, and fashionable my babies.
I keep them looking nice and fabulously fresh all the time, and it doesn’t require a trip to Bergdorf’s to do it. I mean how many of today’s economy of parents can truly afford shopping like that? I sure can’t and I’m not going to pretend that I can. While saving for college funds, it’s just not possible. Besides, they are only going to outgrown and ruin their clothes because they, are kids. This Cheap and Fab Mom knows how to stretch a nickel. I’m reminded of the kids rhyme I recited as a child, “trying to make a dollar out of fifteen cents”. TA! I make it happen. Check out some of their fresh diggs below:

    Your kids are so freaking adorable!! It is refreshing to see a parent be upfront about finances and responsible with their “kid” spending. It saddens me when I see folks who can’t stop spoiling their kids, even when it means horribly sacrificing their futures.

    I love your blog and will follow through google reader. I have had multiple twitter accounts…I actually started out as a beauty blogger and did well, but the craziness turned me off of that “circle” lol! I enjoy being on the outside if it means doing my own thing! Do not fret, show love and love will be shown back!

  4. Thank you so much! I’m starting to get excited about it now since I have such nice people behind me. Very warm and fuzzy feeling..lol
    I will continue to follow you as well!
    Thanks again!
