"a full-time mum with a full-time nanny"?? I don't think so!

Wish I had time to go to the gym, salon and shopping on my own for only 2-3 hours!!

"I don;t want to be judgmental". She wouldn't last long around here, would she?

When did we get to the point that parents seriously expect 2 year olds not to have tantrums?! hmm I think she was just distraught that she couldn't pay someone to come along and sort it out. grin

"I never thought I'd have to ask for help with child rearing" Er, sorry - is a full-time nanny not help?

I think it is very telling that the woman writing in refers tobringing up kids as 'child rearing'. fgs.

I'd like to go and live with Tanya and her husband off The Bill.

Daffodil and Otto, naturally.

Jeeze she is bloody good isn't she.

She's even covered the 'I'm not perfect myself and have to pull myself up as a parent too sometimes' angle so we don't think she is too perfect.

I want to be Dr T.

Wish I could forward this to my BIL.

He thinks his sweet little 2 year old DD is "out of control" and needs severe punishment.

Every time she has a tantrum they deal with it head-on or put her to bed for an hour (cue lots of time spent behind bars!).
