As a mother of a toddler, it is not always easy to maintain your sanity. You need to steal some me time and also do a few things that may not win you the Best Mommy award, but will keep you going. Here are a few things that most moms do, but won't admit.
Bribing your child with chocolate to get a few minutes of peace, or to finish a phone call is okay. And we all do it.
Some times, just some times, it is okay to take the shortcut and make a quick meal, even if its out of a box, for your toddler while she hangs on your legs!
The joy parents feel when their kids go back to school is REAL! 3 hours of no little person following you all around, when you can watch anything other than wheels on the bus and eat all the candy you stashed away.
Children have the attention span of a goldfish, and keeping them entertained is a major task. So sometimes you need to outsource that. To a TV. No judging.
I am sure every mom, every single mom has done this. Faking a pee or poop just to get some free, quiet (mostly) and undisturbed time.
