I know no easy way of notifying you all of this comment, so the most effective thing to do is make a new post...

I thank you all for the very kind words about my mothering. But I feel I should issue a disclaimer - there is no such thing as a perfect parent, and things I do don't have to work for others. Particularly those of you without kids yet (the parents will assume this already!), I DO NOT get it right all the time. I have moments of irrational anger, I take my own tiredness out on my kid sometimes, I explain things wrong on occasion.

Everyone does it. My way of recovering from moments of serious parenting fail is to apologise once and move on. But I'm aware I tend to blog the funny, cute, win moments - it's not like that all the time!

I love you for this comment :)
and, regardless of the times when parenting is tough or doesn't seem to happen the way you'd like, I still think you're a pretty special mum/person. xxx

It's always the way...

Everybody thinks the world of E, and don't see the occasional 10:30pm 'fight to stay awake' times that frustrate R and I.

Yep, I'm sure it isn't! But it's still good to hear the funny, cute and win. Good to hear a bit about the failures too, but I know not everyone here is as interested in all sides of the parenting caper, so :)
