“So and so’s children are so manner less.Can’t they just keep them in control even for a minute? I swear when I get mine,they will be the most disciplined kids in the neighborhood. I detest disorderly ness “
What a huge bile,especially coming from someone you consider a friend and more so an aspiring parent!!! Let’s take a moment of silence for the “perfect, know -it- all” kind of people.The kind of people who will visit your home and expect you to lock your toddler in the bedroom so that you can entertainment their talks, while they cannot take a giggle from your toddler .What a waste…you call them friends!Maybe it’s time to re-evaluate. You don’t need that negative energy around your child.
Let’s get a few things Crystal clear…
You see kids will always be kids. They enjoy movement. Infact they are like little “robots” on motion. All over the place without necessarily minding where they are. They prefer to be mobile and occupy their little minds with “important “stuff than listen to boring adult talks. They enjoy attention as well.. .infact they value it. That’s fine by me.I love observing them do their thing. Their innocence is something that always warms my heart.And takes me back to my sweet old childhood days.
Now while kids can be quite a handful, they play a very active role in a family setting.They are the light of the home,mine are and so should yours. As such,whether single or married and yet to be parent, you cannot expect to visit a family where there are kids, but look forward to having quiet sane moments without interruptions here and there. Honestly on this real space, those children you see on the movies sitted at the corner of the couch minding their own business while adults converse, are either constantly snatching your gadget or fighting over trivial matters. In a home with kids, it’s chaotic, it’s messy, it’s fun!!So get prepared for that.
If at any given monent you find yourself not ready for that,you might consider holding off that visit as well.It will be much better and polite than trying to fix a draining situation.
Did I just rant?Well,that’s all about it for now. Let’s enjoy our parenting. Let the house get messy, get on the floor and be part of the mess. They won’t be young forever. It’s time to create memories! Have fun.Be fun.
