Kids Going Solo: Weigh In on When to Let Them Go

Smug is a strong word, but I will be truthful here and admit that with five kids there have for sure been small moments when yes, I probably have felt the tiniest bit smug about parenting like, yep, I have this stage DOWN like a champ.

Like, baby food? Done that. Diapering? I got that one handled. Toddlers? Got that one down (oh except for Talley but we are working on that one).

I Just Busted My Own BIGGEST Personal Parenting Judgment of All Time with One Purchase

This website, and online community, is one that I always strive to have as a “judgment free zone”, and I think it is, for the most part. Am I totally judgment free? No, of course I’m not.
