It is SOOOOOOOOO nice to read these as it proves we are all SOOOOOOOO normal!!!!
I too am a shocking mother, I let me kids watch too much TV, eat too much crap and too often ignore them, because I can't be bothered, resent them and DH as they have their own lives and I live through theirs, without having one of my own.
Here's something else we can all admit to as well though...
We love our kids and I for 1 would give myself for them and I'm pretty sure we ALL do the best we can, and sometimes it's not great, but at least we try.
I forgot to add...
I'm ashamed to say my DD (3) still has a dummy to sleep (only), cos I just can't be bothered fighting her to take it off her and I like my sleep, also why I haven't TT her at night.
