There were tons of things I swore I’d never say or do once I became a parent. I suppose in opposite world I’m parenting exactly how I thought I would (or should).
Every now and again I encounter a smuggy childless soul with defined and vocal ideas about parenting. Hey, I was a “better” parent before I had kids too. Don’t get the wrong idea, it’s not that I have a thing against the childless population – oh gosh no. I have a thing against the smarty pants childless types who insist on sharing their inexperienced and unsolicited advice.
This rant is exclusively reserved for the nonparentals who claim to be wise in the challenges of raising little people. These folks are quick to discuss daycare, potty training, vaccinations, and the laws of proper parenting. Most of the time I just smile and nod, but other times I bottle it up, sit down at the computer and unleash the unbridled fury of everything I’m too chicken to say out loud.
Brace yourselves; this slideshow is about 9 years in the making.
