Reverse Parenting

Reverse parenting has been going on in this household for almost as long as parenting. Some gems from our munchkins:

  • Mommy, you should eat your fruit cup before dessert (little N at age 3, watching me reach for a bucket of gulab jamuns after a big lunch buffet)
  • Really mommy, soooo much sugar in your coffee? (little A at a restaurant a few weeks back, hiding sugar packets so I couldn’t get to them)
  • Both hands on the steering wheel, please (last week, while I was driving little N to violin practice and reaching for something in the car)
  • Mommy, are you aware that you have milk boiling on the stove? (when I was lying on the couch (post-prandial quickie nap) while also making slow-cooking dessert)
  • Daddy, please put some clothes on (when poor N dares to briefly take off his t-shirt in his own house)

Can somebody please tell these girls who the parents are?

  1. It’s too bad you can’t record the 3rd one, then play it back when little N starts to drive.
