Hello!

Right now, I’m hiding in my pantry with the laptop… I can hear the 2 five year olds fighting in their bedroom over who gets to wear the dress up… the 7 year old is playing with her Barbie in time out because I just can not deal with the screaming that comes from having to take it away.. the 10 year old is hiding up in his room away from all the girls that take over the house.. and I’m sitting here with the 6 month old, sharing her tin of chocolate custard, because the calories totally don’t count if it’s from her bowl and not mine… right?!
I may not be winning any parent of the year awards, but they are all still alive today, so I chalk that up as a win!

  • Good for you. I call that survival patenting! It’s just a pity my pantry isn’t big enough to hide in.

  • Well I don’t think you should feel like you aren’t a good parent because you seek a bit of solace, from what can sometimes be an overwhelming situation. At the end of the day everyone is safe, and you just need a moments peace.
