When my twin boys were first born, I took a hiatus from Facebook. My partner went as far as posting a status update –an overly cheerful announcement that the boys were born at 10:03 a.m. –and left it at that. Most of the responding comments were those of congratulations, but there were a few that exposed the truth of what was happening –like "Oh... God, isn't that kind of early?" "Are they okay?" or "How's mom?"
