I know I can’t be the only mom who sees another kid hit their sweet little baby and immediately feel defensive. Protecting our children is our job, isn’t it?
I know it’s not normal to want to throw it down with a toddler, but it’s so sad to see.

What’s worse is when it’s your friend’s kids who are the antagonists. How do you tell your friend that their kid is a little shit? You don’t.
It’s hard to let go when your instinct is to protect your kids from everything. You can’t fight every battle for your children as much as you’d like to.
The truth is, we’re not always going to be around when things get hard, and that is part of life. You can’t watch your kid’s every move and you certainly don’t want to become that worrying helicopter parent. Kids will be kids.
With that being said, I will just continue to eagle eye every snot-nosed kid that comes into contact with mine. I am, after all, a mom.
