17 days… and counting…

It has just occurred to me, upon glancing over at the book I am presently reading, Sneaky Parenting by Jo Wiltshire, that although the word “parent” has become a verb, when did you last hear someone say…

“I have parented!”

…?

Actually, come to think of it, now I’ve written it down, I may indeed have heard someone say something along those lines…

“I have parented 2 children…”

…for example.

…or am I going mad?! 😐
