Imperfect Parenting

Most of the time I feel like I’m doing a good job at this parenting thing.

Most of the time I’m the kind of parent I want to be.

And then every once in a while (yesterday afternoon), I’m the parent at the end of their tether who plonks their kid in front of the TV so they can sit on the couch and eat their McDonalds in peace.

IMG_5410She was glued to that screen! It was a little scary how mesmerised she was, but I guess it’s pretty amazing if you’re not normally allowed to watch it.

For those wondering, I managed to eat my McDonalds in peace, regretted it immediately, and even got halfway through looking through the junk mail before PlaySchool finished and I had to plug back in to the real world.

These days are numbered, for soon she’ll be wanting me to share those fries, and I think it’s best we don’t go there. We’ll see.

  1. Haha. My little one has never shown an interest in TV. Which is good but I agree that sometimes you just need 5 minutes break so it would be helpful if she’d sit still and watch it! You’re right your days are certainly numbered – you will soon have to hide in a cupboard to eat something alone!!
