  • I don't have my kids' pictures on Cafemom at all, just because it's such a big site. If I actually know somebody, they can see my photos on Facebook or MySpace, which you can see if you're on my friends list.

  • Doesn't really bother me either way...

  • It doesn't bother me, but I prefer to use a picture of myself for my avatar, because I use cafemom for myself, something of an escape from just being "mom", so to use a picture of my kids would make it about them to me. That's also why I didn't pick a screenname that was related to my kids in any way. But, I don't care if other people use their kids' pictures, doesn't bother me at all.

    This is CafeMom, with the keyword being MOM.
    We wouldn't be moms if it weren't for our children.
    Moms who show avatars of their children are just proud of them and love to show the world what makes them a happy mommy. What is wrong with that?
    It's better than hiding behind an Anon avatar.

  • Doesn't bother me at all. This is a place for Moms after all and I always just figured that there were some proud Mamas with adorable little family members.
