    Default *Spinoff* Confessions of an average parent

    My kids eat junk food, so do I.
    We watch TV while we eat all the time.
    My 11 month old ate three French fries today.
    I really, really like wine. And beer. Vodka too.


    Ah, feels good. What are your confessions? And please keep this thread a judgey-pants free zone!

    Play school is my saviour at least once a day.
    DS1 has had sugar!
    I use biscuits as bribery..work particularly well when he's having a tantrum about getting in his car seat.
    DS1 also plays with my iPad and iPhone.
    Last night I fed DS1 baked beans for dinner.

    I sleep everyday after school pick up. All this week, i have woken up too late to even cook a decent meal so its been all super quick dinners such as tinned spagetti, crumpets with honey and fish and chips.

    Ooh, haha my DS (2) watches FAR too much tv right now. He eats breakfast lunch and dinner while watching. Partly because in struggling to lift him into his high chair being pregnant.

    I too use food as bribery, as well as my phone and Tv

    I let him play on my phone while I watch bold and the beautiful - it's the only way I can watch in peace.

    There are more I'm sure. Just can't think of them

    I think they call that a 'mental health day'

    This one time.. My child miss the bus because I was playing sunrise cash cow. I don't even know why, I just happened to see the code word and did it for giggles.
    And she cried.

    My parenting has gotten considerably worse in the past 6 weeks with the birth of number 2..

    The other day I forgot about school photos, lucky she's always properly dressed for school but she did mention all of the other girls had 'fancy' hair that day. Meanwhile my kid would have been handed one of those skanky combs because her hair probably looked like nobody owned her by 11am.

    For shame.

    My baby falls asleep to the radio switched between stations. It's on right now and my other one rushed to turn the tv up. Sigh.
