Photos on mobile covers

I have been doing very well lately.  But then out of the blue there is something that hurts me.

We had a whole day meeting in the company; I was sitting with colleagues that I don't see very often. Since the meeting was a bit boring from times to times, all of us were checking from time to time our mobiles. At one point I realized that literally all people around me have on mobile covers photos of their kids. It is like an unwritten rule, if you have a child, he/she is always on your mobile cover. 

Once again, I felt very different. No photo of a cute kid on my mobile cover.

After sitting for 10 hours, I came come, changed and went jogging.... just to shake sad thoughts away. It helped.


  1. Ugh! There's always something to remind us that we are different.

    I'm glad you went for a jog to get the sad thoughts out of your mind.

  2. My response was also, "ugh!"

    I've never seen that. None of my friends/family have mobile covers of their kids. And I think I can confidently say that I would never have put a photo of my kid on my mobile phone cover either. Perhaps it's something that just isn't done as much here. Or perhaps it is a reflection of my friends/family. I guess I'm lucky.

    Sending hugs.

  3. I am sorry you had to encounter this reminder.
    Jogging has been my remedy quite often, too. It helps me most of the time.

  4. I love "STFU Parents" for this very thing. However, now I insert my dogs into kid conversations every time, probably just to be annoying. Yay for a jog tho xoxo
