Deluded parents of a certain to be spoilt child are still trying to pass its age off in months, it has emerged.
Despite the infant not being on Facebook, mother Becky Dinting posted: “Happy seven month birthday, Jeanie. Wow! We can’t believe a whole seven whole months ago you changed our lives forever. Where has the time gone?”
The over-the-top tribute featured seven “different” photos of the baby during each of the months she’s existed in during her so far insignificant life.
Close friends have revealed the mother expects everyone to comment on how the child has notably “grown up”.
Friend Charlotte Hall said: “I just left a comment that said ‘Happy Birthday little Jeanie. Getting big now’ but I can’t really tell the difference. Jeanette used to slag off parents who did this. Now the other mums don’t like her.”
Nathan Dobson, colleague and Facebook friend of the baby’s father James, said: “To be honest I was expecting it. I don’t know what you’re meant to say when every month they remind you about the birth of their child; every month it’s as if she’s finished her Masters or something. Who counts in months?”
“You can imagine them celebrating her every trivial scholastic achievement as if it’s a Nobel prize. Did you know they “graduate” from primary school now? For fuck sake!”
“I like James, and I know this largely his wife’s doing. I just don’t have the heart to say “Mate, no-one cares that your baby has been alive for another month. I’ve got frozen lasagne older than your child, grow the fuck up.”
If Jeanie was on Facebook she’d probably be well embarrassed.
I just unfollowed him.“
Unsure about which milestone the child has reached, father James mused: “It’s about one now isn’t it? It must be.”
