I love my friends but I have to eye roll

Especially when a "professional nanny" talks to me like I can’t parent correctly.

Does my child play outside?
Really?

Bed Time

My children are smarter than I am.
Jackie has always been politely and silently smug.

Darla is a pip and a problem.

She just turned 4 years old and already I’ve had months of:

"Say yes. I’m going to ask a question. You say yes. Yes, mommy."

Last night I heard.
"Mudder, she need a talk. You sit down" -she pats chair.
"Can you say ‘bed time’? Say it. Buh, buh, bed. Now say ‘time’. Tie, tie, timmmmmme.’

I obliged and said "Bed time"

"Good Mommy, that was good. Now say "Darla has No Bed Time", okay? I want to hear you say it!
