I’m a kind-hearted person, really I am, but sometimes I find myself doing things I’m sure only mean parents would do.
Like… letting H wiggle/squeak in bed a little longer than normal while I make myself breakfast.
2 egg omelet with peppers, onions, mushrooms, spinach and mozzarella. Topped with some Pace salsa. Mmm!
Good parents probably secretly buy their children presents for Christmas to surprise them on Christmas morning.
Bad parents strap their child on and buy them bottles and other necessities for Christmas while the child is right there. I’m the latter.
Homemade lemon chicken orzo soup (from this mock Panera recipe) and some hummus.
Good parents probably don’t make their child fight to sit up in the bumbo while they make themselves MORE to eat.
Romaine, quinoa, sauteed onions and peppers, guacamole, greek yogurt and salsa.
Good parents take their pups out to play on cloudy days.
Bad parents just walk outside to snap food pictures and leave the pup begging to play.
(ok… I threw her some sticks ;))
A heavenly chocolate truffle, compliments of a friend, and a cup of decaf with breve cream.
Chana masala with broccoli and garlic naan.
And finally… I’m sure only bad parents take away a tired baby’s pacifier in order to try and capture their cute frown on camera.
Frown capture fail.
Resume good parenting.
Done anything lately that you’re certain only bad parents (of children and/or pups) would do?
