Ore Oduba received praise for showing the ‘reality of parenting’ after he shared a picture of himself with his son.
What did Ore Oduba say about his son?
And on Instagram this weekend, Ore posted a photo of himself enjoying a cute cuddle with his little boy.
But he was honest to his followers in the post’s caption, where he revealed his son – as with all children his age – isn’t always as cuddly as he appears in pictures.
In a message that’s likely relatable for many parents, Strictly winner Ore said the toddler had tried to ‘scratch his face off’ just moments before over a box of Peppa Pig raisins.
He wrote in the caption of the post, which was also an ad for Wet Wipes UK: “MOOD SWINGS. Don’t be fooled by the PDA, this is Roman on a ‘good’ day… a big kiss for dad, moments before he screamed and tried to scratch my face off cos I wouldn’t give him a pack of Peppa Pig raisins. Standard.
Makes me feel like it’s normal.
“Don’t get me wrong, I love it when he’s affectionate like this even for just a second. Only he usually makes us pay for it. Two and a half years old and Ro has definitely reached peak two-nager/terrible twos during lockdown!
“Thankfully Portia and I are not alone. It’s tough enough being a parent without a global pandemic!”
In the comments, fans thanked him for being so honest.
One said: “So glad it’s not just me going through this! It’s nice to hear people speak up, makes me feel like it’s normal and I’m not a terrible parent.”
It only ‘gets worse’
Another wrote: “Thank you for sharing this @oreodubaofficial. People need to hear about the reality of parenting… unfortunately, it only gets worse.”
A third told him: “OMG the tantrums are real… I’m going through the terrible twos atm too.”
