I’ll tell you what I want, what I really really want from you for 2018.
For everyone to stop being judgemental DICKWADS about other Mums.
As parents we all want to be perfect. I get it, I honestly I do. Hell, I strive like a bastard for that unreachable target, but my hapless parenting skills seem to keep getting in the way.
So if you’re a mum and you’ve got your shit together like Carol Brady, congrats…and please pass on my regards to Mike, Marcia, Greg, Peter, Jan, Bobby and that annoying little shit, Cindy 🖕
But maybe just take a minute to remember that it’s not all peaches and cream for everyone all the time. There’s always someone going through a parenting shitstorm.
So if you see a mum having a hard time, don’t be a judgey dick.
Whether it be the tired mum at the shops with screaming kids and baby poo smeared on her face, a girlfriend who needs a shoulder to cry on because her husband is being the meat in a turd sandwich, the mum who has a tanty throwing a-hole child at the park or even just the mum you caught flipping her kid the bird behind their back…trust me, the last thing she needs is a condescending wanker judging her.
And I speak from experience as I’ve been each and every one of those Mums.
So for the love of all that is good and Adam Levine like in the world, don’t be a twatburger.
Parenting is hard enough without a judgmental Jane looking on. So without holding hands and singing Kumbaya, be kind and look after each other.
You never know, maybe one day you’ll need an understanding nod from a friend or indeed a perfect stranger.
Parenting is really fucking hard…so take a long hard sip from the understanding cup and don’t pass judgement. Instead maybe just pass her a smile, a hug or even a glass of bubbles to help her get through the day.
Make this a great year for everyone. It’s not too much to ask is it?
Happy 2018 all and share the love xx
