When it comes to being a parent, it’s rare that an hour goes by when we don’t mess something up. Most of the time, it’s small things that will likely be forgotten by the four-year-old before nap time. Of course, with each passing blunder, I do honestly question whether or not my hot dogs for dinner three nights in a row is setting my child up for a misfortunate adulthood.
The Parenting Fails are real. And at times, they can make any good parent question their sanity. But know that you are not alone!
