There are moments when I think back to things I did to my mum as a kid and cringe.
Like when I was three and told her I loved “daddy” more.
Or, when I was about twelve and wanted her to stop dropping me so close to the school because I was embarrassed.
Perhaps, with a sigh of relief, my mum and I both realise that every parent and child has days like that.
Even Chrissy Teigen: model, business person, and Queen of Sassy Tweets.
After a particularly tough day, she put this tweet out to her 7.58 million followers:
And, BOY OH BOY, did people offer up their stories.
From being refused kisses by their toddlers to being savagely cut down from their six-year-olds, parents around the world are uniting.
To be honest, it’s posts like this that make me bow down to every mother and father who is surviving out there.
