the "i told you so" parenting moments

No mom likes to hear "I told you so," so I stay away from it. I really do try and keep my opinions to myself, but I will share what worked for us and try to advise others to do the same. But sometimes I just want to do a dance and shout I TOLD YOU SO!!!!

My SIL, who has a very different parenting style and has an 8 yo, had a baby shower for her second baby and we got her a swaddler. I told her it was one of the best things we used for both our kids and they slept SO much better in the swaddler. She gave me a funny look, probably chalked it up to "my crazy parenting," and set it aside. THE NEXT DAY she took a picture of the baby and said "she slept for 8 straight hours in the swaddler!!!' weeeeeellll DUH!!! I TOLD YA SO!!!

do you have any funny "i told you so" mom-ments??

She speaks with wisdom, and faithful instruction is on her tongue...
Charm is deceptive, and beauty if fleeting; but a woman who fears the Lord is to be praised."
