I guess sometimes we as parents need to be reality checked by our children! Welp… my daughter gave me a few things to think about after she gave me a dose of the REAL!
My teenage daughter called me out on some stuff! I was caught off guard and completely surprised by it.
I’ve been meaning to complete a project, or two, or three! Lol! So, I start to talk about them and she chimed in…
My Daughter: Mom, you’re a perfectionist!
Me: I know!
My Daughter: STOP! Just Do It!
There are so many things you could have accomplished already! You limit yourself! Stop trying to be perfect, nothing is perfect!
Me: O_o (looking like a Deer in headlights) She’s so right!
I need to stop! I love her to pieces!
I did a double take, like… Did we just switch places for a second!
Has your child ever called you out on anything or given you a reality check?
