the stare…

So it happened

It took 2 1/2 years to happen but it did

we got the stare

you know, the one where someone is judging you and your parenting

and it bothered me

i wanted to go over to the judgemental lady and tell her…

we are good parents

we are on our holidays

he is a good boy 99% of the time

now is the 1 %

now is the time we parent via YouTube so that you get to eat your fish and chips in peace and not be terrorised by an over tired and vocal toddler

now is the time that i feel like i have to justify my parenting to you and i have never set eyes on you before

now is the time when i want to go and say stop staring, didn’t anyone tell you it’s rude

stop whispering to your friends/ husband/ sister

we are not bothering you

you are however bothering me and my enjoyment with my family who i only get to see a couple of times a year

i know i should ignore

but it’s really hard

as we all know, this parenting business is blooming hard

we are doing ok

we have a happy MiniMonkey

that’s all that matters

so to all the starers/ mutterers/ judgers

Leave us Be
