I'm a tad frustrated. An older friend of ours sees our two year old crying and fussing as evidence that as a character she is "demanding", period. Grrrr. I try to explain that actually it's a result of a being hot, overtired (after being up since 5.30am) coupled with a delayed lunch. He replies saying he understands our 'troubles' as (like our DD) he was one of 5, yet has no children of his own!
To me that feels like saying, "I know what it's like to be a parent as I had one myself".
I love him dearly and I know he means well and does truly think he knows what it's like to be a parent to 5 children. But it's prickled me something nasty all the same.
