I've been a mother for over 4 years now, same amount of time most students need to finish their undergrad studies ( I say most because it took me 5 😂) so I guess I have a bachelor degree in motherhood. With that being said I feel morally obliged to share the knowledge I obtained with the world.
Over the course of my "studies" I developed my own approach to parenting, I call it The lazy mother approach. It consists of a few simple steps to guide parents trough big milestones with minimal effort.
LESSON NO 1: weaning off the pacy
STEP 1 Make sure your child only likes that one specific brand of pacifiers that can only be found in that one pharmacy on the other side of town.
STEP 2 Lose every single pacifier you own around midnight on a Sunday night, when the said pharmacy is closed.
STEP 3 Pretend to be looking for the lost pacifier(s) while keeping one eye peeled to your favourite show on Netflix, in hopes your partner is doing the actual work.
STEP 4 By this point your child is completely exhausted and should pass out on it's own.
STEP 5 Admire your sleeping angel ( sans pacifier) and give yourself a pat on the back, some parents work on this for days, maybe even weeks and YOU did it within a couple of hours with pretty much no effort. You are so winning this parenting thing 💁👸
