It seems like no matter who or where you are as a parent, there are mommy and daddy shamers coming for you... and your kids. From those who take issue with your child's appearance, or find fault with what you allow your kids to do in your own home, everyone seems to think they need to weigh in on your family's choices.
The Real Housewives of Atlanta's Kandi Burruss is also not safe from the parenting police, and she's taking a proactive stance by explaining some of the comments she's expecting to get before anyone has a chance to make them.
In a recent "My Mornings with the Kids" video, Kandi explained all the things she does with her family each morning (hint: it's A LOT), but it was one thing in particular that she stopped to explain in detail.
After Ace Wells Tucker eats the breakfast she makes for him (as his resident personal chef), his "wardrobe stylist" — aka her husband, Todd — picks out his clothes and helps him get dressed.
Then, like many other kids, the 3-year-old hops up on a step-stool to brush his teeth. The difference: He's still in the kitchen.
"Before you all get started talking trash, I like to brush his teeth after he eats breakfast in the morning and his bedroom is upstairs, we're too lazy to go back up there so we just use our vegetable sink," Kandi explained. "But we clean it out real good, know that. We hit it with the bleach after, you don't have to be saying, 'Oh, that's so gross,' because we make sure it's clean."
Got it — and honestly isn't the most important thing that his teeth are well-brushed in the first place anyway, and the location just secondary? After watching all the things they do before driving their young son to preschool together, we can't blame her for not trekking out of the way to another sink.
Hey, if we had that many sinks in our home, who's to say we wouldn't do the same after we finished eating.
