There have been more than five parenting moments when I wished the ground would have swallowed me whole, but I had to narrow it down.
These were when my kiddies were little. When I cared about what other people thought, how they judged my parenting. Now my children are older, and I am wiser (or just plain fatigued), I am happy for others to pass judgement on me and my parenting ways. I'm more confident in how we raise our children and more sure of the reasons why we do the things we do.
Always good to look back and have a laugh at yourself though.
