The hardest thing about being a parent

I'm on my own with three kids for a week, cause Anders is in Sweden.
It's fine.

What's really hard about being a parent is to stop yourself from laughing at the wrong moment.

Like yesterday, when Niki said she was terrified of having another nightmare involving "Turkey turtles. "

So hard not to laugh.
But she was dead serious.

This situation resulted in me biting the inside of my cheek so hard that I was sore for the rest of the evening.



  1. We kept a blog of all the things my nephews said growing up. It's always a good thing to read when we need a laugh now.

  2. I WOULD HAVE LAUGHED. Because I am a crap parent.

  3. I laughed a little and excused myself to go to the bathroom. I still ended up with that bite. TURKEY TURTLES. she was terrified

  4. i can't even being to imagine what is going through Niki's head EVERY DAY.


I welcome any comment, so happy to hear from you.
