I saw your kid hit my kid!
No, I’m not mad or annoyed with you or your mean kid. Your kid is 2, mine is 4. I can see that you are worried and paranoid that something will happen, or someone will judge you. Stop it! You are working your ass off! I see you constantly watching him, and making sure he is okay.
I can relate.
All new moms go through that phase of constant worry. No sleep, not enough water, way too much caffeine. You are doing a great job, so don’t even worry about it! More moms need to be like you! Patience and peace come with time. Then there will be more chaos, but you will be able to handle it like a boss!
What you did right
Here is the glorious thing about parenting. Most people are doing it right. You have to be a really terrible person to get it wrong. There are so many different types of parenting, and no matter how good you are, your kid is still going to have their own personality. I was impressed that you didn’t just sit there and let it happen. You jumped up, grabbed him, and asked my son if he was okay. You also explain in such a sweet, but stern way, the reason why it’s not nice to hit. Then, you even apologized to me! Which was not needed.
You are doing such a great job!
Like I said before, there are so many ways that situation could have gone worse. I want to thank you for being an awesome mom to that adorable 2-year-old! You keep doing what you are doing and don’t even worry about anyone else!
