Does the school principal have your family's phone number on speed dial?

Are you on a first-name basis with your pharmacist?

Do you carry noise cancelling headphones in your purse? 

Do you host parades when your child tries a new food?

Does "date night" with your spouse consist of couple's therapy?

Does your idea of a "beauty day" consist of one in which you've combed your hair?"

If you answered "Yes" to any of these questions, you've come to the right imperfect place.

Welcome to Shut Up About Your Perfect Kid, a happy place for parents and caregivers of imperfect children.
