Being mistakenly accused of bad parenting just reminded me of an embarrassing parent fail/win today.

At the park playing ball tiggy (touch with ball), kid runs off shouting, launched the ball immediately at his legs, trips up and he hit dirt hard, screaming, face full of dirt and bloody nose.

The filthy looks I got were burning as I tried to get him up and brush it off, whilst he’s screaming blue murder at me for doing it on purpose. It did look like I did it out of spite (it wasn’t).

I used to do something that could be seen as bad parenting, but at the same time has elements of good parenting

When the kids were nippers, the 2 eldest (aged about 8 and 5) used to love watching me give the youngest (aged 2] a “monkey bath”

A monkey bath is when you make the water temperature just slightly too hot, so when you lower the kid in he’s going “ooh ahh ooh ahh ooh ahh” ie making noises that resemble a monkey

Bad parenting in that the youngest used to cry, but good parenting as the other 2 were highly amused

interesting you say that. was at playground on Sunday. Young lad was using that zip cord thing and I was trying to kick a football at him while he was gliding past. Mutually agreed. Didn't get him once tbh but called it quits on the 3rd attempt.

Had a flashback to the 70's today when I saw a bicycle with wing mirrors.
