Have you ever felt as though you were/are failing as a parent?
Because right now I feel like that.
A big fat failure.
Not with the baby…she’s just perfect alhamdulillah. Always smiling and cooing away mashAllah.
I am having issues with the 6 (almost 7 year old). I blogged about her before here.
She has started showing serious attitude.
She doesn’t listen and I find myself repeating things over and over again. Don’t do this…and the next day she does it again. I don’t know if she genuinely forgets or if it’s done on purpose to wind me up. I’m leaning towards the latter.
She is a fussy eater. I struggle as to what to feed her. It takes her almost an hour to eat a bowl of cereal in the morning.
A small bowl.
I breathe a sigh of relief when she goes to school. Does that make me a bad mum?
And you know how parents say you don’t have favourites? Well right now the baby doesn’t misbehave, doesn’t give me smart alec remarks and smiles lovingly at me………no contest at the moment.
And I feel guilty for even thinking like that.
