When I fell pregnant, I would think ahead and how I would parent and swore that I would be an equal parent and would never utter the words “You wait till Daddy gets home” I was pretty successful with that with my first child a girl who I remember having the terrible 2’s but not as much as my nearly 3 year old boy!! Whether it’s a boy thing or the fact there is 2 of them, I think probably the latter, but I admit I have lost the battle and have to get Daddy to cut in and sort them out sometimes!
Sometimes I feel like I may be invisible or if I am noticed I get the reply ‘No’ or laughter, it is so frustrating but I guess a phase we’ll get past. And the sibling fighting, I have to come to terms with the fact that they’ll always do that!
Please tell me I’m not the only mum who succumbed to using daddy and we can get the power back?!
