That One Time I MAY Have Overdone It As A Parent

I Have A Lot Of Regrets. And This Is One Of Them.

March 31, 2019

I've done a lot of ridiculous things as a parent, and this is no exception.  

When I popped on to Facebook earlier, a memory from 6 years ago was at the top of my feed.  

WELL, let's just say when I saw this picture....I laughed!  FOR A REALLY LONG TIME!!!  

It shows me at my best as a "Helicopter Mom", the first year of Owen's life.  See EVIDENCE A below.  

This Is Me Parenting--Year One. Don't Be Me.

Yep!  That's my little Owen in Florida and that is a perfect example of TOO MUCH PEOPLE!   I laughed so hard because he is covered from head to toe.  Now, don't get me wrong....keeping their skin out of the sun is VERY important and I'm still a freak about it, I just don't make them wear two layers with water wings and a hat the size of Texas.  LOL!  

To make it worse, there's more.  See EVIDENCE B below.  

Nobody Should Ever Do This To Their Kid. #FreeTheKid

Ok, so I hope you all had a good laugh at my helicopter parenting from the first year of Owen's life!  And don't worry...I learned to relax but still make sure they don't get hit by a car.  I got this.  LOL.  

Have a great week!
