I’m not sure if my kids are “adventurous” and independent due to my parenting style or because of genetic disposition. That brings on the whole nature vs nurture debate. At the end of the day, when Toddler Child who is wearing a nappy round her waist – and by that I mean she has stepped into one of those pull up diaper things through the leg hole and it’s worn more like a belt – comes into my kitchen and passes me a note – obviously written with the help of middle child – I have no time to debate the root cause of such behaviour. It’s still all my fault!
P.S. No children were harmed in the making of this story. Neither by self harm or otherwise!
