It seems like kids want whatever you're eating, especially if it looks better than what's on their own plate. The oh-so-familiar "can I try" question comes out of their mouth and before you know it, your delicious dinner just got gobbled up by your little one.
There are a million ways to mess up as a mom. Being the "perfect parent" is virtually impossible so there's no way that any of us will emerge without battle scars. The best thing we can do is learn from our oops moments and move on.
"Sorry I'm not home right nowI'm walking into spiderwebsSo leave a messageAnd I'll call you back..." Sometimes we just want to be left alone. When unexpected visitors or calls interrupt our precious time at home, you just want to ignore it and go on with your day. You have plenty of other things to keep you occupied like never-ending piles of laundry or cleaning up after messy kids. People can always leave a message or come back another time.
Getting a squirmy kid to sit still is a challenge that all moms will face at some point, so trying to do chores can seem almost impossible. What's the easiest way to get a few extra minutes so you can quickly clean up or get a load of laundry in the wash? Keep them in a high chair as long as possible.
This sneaky tactic could work unless your kids decide to repeat that word or phrase over and over again until they're practically shouting it. That's may be your cue to call in reinforcements (aka dad).
