Every Saturday I bring you a parenting mistake my husband and I have made. Please have a laugh or cry at our expense — we really are good parents, I swear.
On Tuesday evening, I put a piece of bread in the toaster and handed my toddler a jar of blueberry jam (with the lid on!). I then began making dinner and forgot all about her. When she caught my attention again, she looked like a sticky smurf. Her entire face was coated in blue jelly as were the sleeves and front of her shirt. The jam jar was nearly empty. Just then, my husband walked in the kitchen. He was not impressed.
