Does anyone else know a "perfect" parent?

My SIL thinks she's the perfect parent.  She makes her kids full breakfasts each morning, no Eggo waffles for her perfect kids!

They don't buy school lunch because they must have organic carrot sticks and whole wheat bread.

They are the stars of their athletic teams and get all A's in school.

I'm confident she'd tell you they always slept through the night, never had a diaper blow out, and ate everything she ever put in front of them.

Not quite sure how the rest of the world lives up to her. It's making me crazy and I'm on the verge of never wanting to be in her company ever again.

Yeah, but they aren't nearly as perfect as they pretend to be.

In real life? No, thank goodness. But CM (and likely FB) is rife with them.

I don't think feeding your kids healthy foods makes anyone an obnoxious prat, but the other stuff is pretty irritating.

Yes I know a few parents who have perfect children and are God's gift to Parenting kind.

 well i think hubby & i are the perfect parents for our kids! =)

in my experience the ones that shout their perfections the loudest are the ones with the most issues!

Well on the internet no one is going to call you out on it. ;) Even on FB, if you have one of those people on your friend's list you're not going to say anything, you will just eye roll and scroll past. Because IF you say something...oh boy here it comes. That perfect mom will have at least a dozen followers that will rabidly rip your head off in her defense.

Indeed, and they're all similarly "perfect."
