We’ve all been there. It’s the end (or maybe even the middle) of the longest day of your parenting life. You’re exhausted — mentally, emotionally and physically. And you’re just not sure if you can do this. To start with, you can. You’ve got this. Even when you think you don’t. You do. And you’re not alone. Even supermodel celebs have bad parenting days, and Chrissy Teigen invited us all to share it with her.
Teigen may seem like she has it all. Not only is she gorgeous, famous and the wife of a super-hot (and equally as famous) hubby, but she also has an absolutely adorable little tot at home. Yeah, she’s got a lot. But she still has her “days.”
The model mama recently tweeted, “I am having a very rough day and it would help me a lot if any moms would like to share stories of their kids being mean to them.”
Almost 8,000 comments later, Teigen’s post has clearly sparked a conversation. Or, at least, a commiseration. One mom tweeted, “my one year old son tells me no every time I kiss him” and another posted, “When my son was 4, he told me my hair was an abomination. Stunned, I asked him what he meant. He said “something I don’t like.”
If you think that your child can be mean, one mama tweeted, “I made French toast for dinner once and my middle kid said they tasted like sorrow.” Hmm.
Has your child ever said something totally mean to you? Tell us in the comments below.
