“I am having a very rough day and it would help me a lot if any mums would like to share stories of their kids being mean to them,” tweeted model Chrissy Teigen on Friday night, after what appears to have been a verrrry stressful few hours.
It turns out her little one, 18-month-old Luna, has been refusing kisses and even gave mum a wallop to the fact ?
But, to Chrissy’s rescue, were the many mums among her 7.6 million followers who’d been there too.
They shared their stories to let her know she’s far from the only one going through it.
Here are some of their best:
“Last week, my 20 month old offered me a bite of her food. As I went to accept it, she snatched it back & ate it. When I made a sad face she lifted her tiny pudgy fists to her eyes and slowly rotated them while saying “wah wah wah” at me.”
“After rotten long flight from Germany, [my son] Dylan saw a store whose sign was a 3D car coming out the wall, and said, ‘I hope it hits you.'”
“When my son was 4, he told me my hair was an abomination. Stunned, I asked him what that meant. He said ‘something I don’t like’.”
“My 4yo tells me I’m a ‘bad woman’ when she doesn’t get her way. @chrissyteigen just wait… 4 is a B***H.”
“The other day my daughter was cranky because she was hungry so I tried to feed her a pretzel and she SPIT IT ALL OVER ME. ALL OVER MY NEW WORK SWEATER!!!!”
“My 13 month old says ‘dada’ but every time I ask ‘can you say mama?’ she looks me in the eyes, says ‘no’ very clearly and then laughs.”
OK, OK, we know we shouldn’t laugh, because it really does suck when your little one starts acting up or isn’t 100% smiley or suddenly isn’t totally in love with you and everything you do.
At the very least, we hope these stories cheered Chrissy up – and showed her she’s really not alone.
