When you see me shouting at my children just because I am having a rubbish day feel free to tell me to calm down.
When you see me bribe my children with chocolate feel free to suggest better ways to get them to behave well and play nicely.
When you see me “forget” to get the kids to brush their teeth at night-time because I have had enough and the bottle in the fridge is calling feel free to wave the colgate around and force my hand.
When you see me plop my children in front of the television with a film for two hours whilst I clean the house feel free to tell me to stop what I am doing and play with my babies because life is too short to dust.
I don’t always parent the best way sometimes I opt for the easy way so feel free to show me the light because like most parents I want to do what is best for my children.
But when you see me feed my almost 12 month old daughter please don’t tell me its time to give up, please don’t tell me she is too old, please don’t say we are odd, and don’t insult me by crying “bitty” in my presence.
Remember the phrase;
If you can’t say something nice then don’t say anything at all.
