Have you ever gone to bed after a particularly difficult night thinking, “I am the worst parent!” Have you found yourself reminiscing on the way to work after an awful morning, “Ugh, I’m doing an awful job!”
Well… no worries my friends, you can all breathe a collective sigh of relief. I am here to tell you, I am the worst parent evaaaaaaaa! I know this to be true, because I have an eight year old who tells me so on a regular basis. And… she is smart enough to know, just ask her….I am the #WorstEver
Wow, you must be thinking, “What did Sarah do to this poor girl?” Well folks, the list is long but here are a few of the worst atrocities I have recently committed:
I made my daughter GO TO BED! Yup! I made her turn off the light, turn off the iPad and everything. I even threatened to shut the door if she didn’t quiet down. #WorstEver
I gave her little sister vanilla wafer cookies for a snack. Why? Because, you know… sometimes snack time really brings out the jerk in people. #WorstEver
I did not buy her a $300 charm bracelet we saw in a store. Obviously, I did not buy the bracelet because I do not love my child, and obviously, because I am the #WorstEver.
I took a shower before I made breakfast. Why? I am selfish and operate in a world where no one else’s pangs of hunger are important to me. Yes, I would let my children starve to enjoy the selfish luxury of a hot shower. #WorstEver
You know what I did do though…I spent all weekend driving my daughter around to different events, having a sleepover, going out to dinner, etc., etc. Obviously, I did this for myself because, I am selfish and the #WorstEver
So chin up friends! No worries this week, no matter what awful thing you do to your child please know that you are not the #WorstEver because that is a title I have securely on lock-down!
