“It really isn’t that hard to move a couple breakables and some wires for a few days.”
Amen to that! I get SO SICK of being ‘Mean Mommy’ when I go to places that aren’t kid-friendly! My kid doesn’t need to learn not to touch glass vases or avoid wires at this stage in life. What I WANT is to just let my baby run loose in others’ homes and not have to freaking worry so much.
I mean, I’m a Mom. All I do is worry! If I bring my kid out of the house with me, it’s so I can relax with friends or family for once. If I have to listen out for shattering glass because someone else didn’t think ahead and put their breakables away, then it’s seriously not worth my time. And R, nice tip about giving kids special toys but SOME kids don’t always do what their parents say like yours do. Or did you not consider that?!
