You can be lying in bed, enjoying a lovely morning snuggle with your partner and kids, giggling and chatting about plans for the day. You can feel pretty blissful in the whine-free, loving moment. You start to think, “Wow, maybe we’ve got this parenting thing figured out.” You start to feel pretty good about yourself.
Then your four-year old says to you “Mum, your breath stinks.”
Thanks buddy, for bringing me back down to earth.
