A few things about my mom that make this an awkward situation:
1) She is much cooler than me so the sheer fact that she didn't already have a facebook is weird 2) She violates the "mom code" on a near daily basis and thus is typically referred to by her birth-given name and rarely "Mom" see Cookbooks and Dirty Jokes as an example
3) I'm a little creeped out by the idea of her being my friend on facebook...it's just too.....personal
It took me a couple of hours to decide what to do. I talked with a good friend back in Jersey and he said, "Totally add her!" I regarded his answer as null and void simply because a) he does not have his parents on facebook and b) he likes my mom (oh, and his opinion wasn't what I wanted to hear). I then text messaged Girlfriend who replied with, "That's why I blocked my dad from being able to find me." which also was useless because hell, she already found me. Finally I called my mom and laid down some "ground rules" if you will before I would add her. Basic stuff really-no friending my friends without permission, make sure you know the difference between Wall-to-Wall and private messages, etc.
Um yeah, we shall see how this goes...
