Sometimes our darling little angels can really test our patience …
One mum decided to take a fun twist on the reward charts parents often give their kids to help keep herself inline during those trying times.
Maralee Bradley, from Nebraska, US shared her amazing chart – which featured ‘tongue-in-cheek’ reasons she can reward herself with snack-sized chocolate bars - on Facebook, writing:
"Around Halloween, I kept seeing this picture go around that listed different candies, their calorie count and what kind of exercise you should do to burn them off. Um, no thank you."
"Motherhood is hard enough without candy guilt. So I whipped up this little chart to put a bit of a different spin on it."
"Motherhood is hard, candy is delicious and maybe it's okay to sometimes give ourselves a little reward for being awesome mums," she continued.
"No amount of candy can 'burn off' the stress and frustration of your average day of motherhood, but I'm not going to say it doesn't help. This is entirely tongue-in-cheek, so I hope you enjoy it in the spirit it was intended."
We absolutely love it!
