Please tell me I am not the only mommy who feels responsible when her child makes a mistake?
You know like when your child throws a rock at the playground and hits someone.
Or when your child says, "look at that fat lady over there!" at the top of their lungs in the grocery.
Or maybe your child says something really bad on the bus and you have to deal with it when he/she gets home.
Or when your child goes in for his routine dental exam and the dentist finds three cavities! You promise you help him brush his teeth twice a day, even flossing them from time to time (come on, who flosses their kids' teeth every day?!)! You feel the horror of the dentist's glare over his safety goggles (aren't those things so obnoxious?!) and the embarrassment when you have to schedule another appointment for your child to get the cavities filled. Oh the shame of telling your big tall hubby about the cavities, he says, don't you make sure he brushes his teeth? (um, yeah, I do, every day and night as much as it annoys me!) Then do you vow to never let your child have sweets again? Well, not that I'd know anything about these things, I was just wondering...
