So, as promised, a week of imperfection & disaster posts (i was going to call it a 'challenge' but it's not) . . . where better to start than bad parenting. My children are largely unsupervised at home, they're not naughty, they are independent & tend to make good behaviour decisions. I wish i could say the same of myself.
Then there are lapses in judgement . . . i really wanted to see Horrible Bosses at the cinema, it was the final days, but my eldest daughter was ill, so . . . i took her alone with me of course. I know, worst mother ever. It was hilarious but the swearing, the drug taking, the hookers & the car chases . . . um, when it finished she turned to me & said "you are such a bad mother but that movie was so funny". Well maybe in her future working life she won't be a push over & driven to murder her boss?? I had to angle a Brady Bunch life lesson out of it somehow.
