Top 10 Parenting Tasks I Depise
Don't judge me, but there are some parenting tasks that I truly do not enjoy! I love my children dearly and I love being a Mom so much, but sometimes I wish I there were things I did not have to do. Since my kids are now 9, 6, and almost 3, I feel I have gathered enough experience to finally put this list out on the Internet. I'm sure there are some you agree with and others that may not bother you as much as they bother me!
For dramatic effect, I'll count backwards from 10...
10. Cleaning Up Kid Vomit - baby spit up is fine, everything else is not!
9. The Stage When Kids Need to Nap Yet They Don't Want to Nap - this goes from when they go from 2 to 1 nap and then when the nap gets eliminated.
8. Staying With Babies in Hotel Rooms - this never goes well for us, but I won't give it up I love to travel too much!
7. Reading Books Before Bed - only because I have two children that have to have the same 20 books every night read in the same order, no exceptions!
6. Holding Down Babies While Getting Shots - its a necessary evil, but it does get easier with more children!
5. Not Being Able to Give Cold Medicine and Listening to Children Cough Over a Monitor - I hate this sound and I hate it even more that there is nothing you can do!
4. Buckling 2-4 Year Olds in Winter Coats in Car Seats - I am never so happy when they can go into a booster seat.
3. Teaching Kids to Tie Shoes - this is just painful and a LONG process!
2. Changing Crib Sheets - one would think I would find an easier way, but I am not convinced there is an easy way!
1. Potty Training - enough said, the third child should potty train themselves!
Do you agree, disagree, or have anything to ad?
