A ‘devastated’ mother has been told to ‘forget herself’ after she vented about how her husband ‘ruined the big moment’ by encouraging their toddler to take the first step without him.

Nikolina Koevska Kharoufeh, from Sydney, wrote an article for 9honey Parenting about her husband Nick’s ‘unforgivable mistake’.

‘Surely ALL parents know that when it comes to your child’s first steps – this is something that, if possible, both proud parents should witness at the SAME TIME,’ wrote the mother who is expecting her second child.

After returning home one evening, Nicolina said her husband revealed to her that their toddler, Noah, took his first steps when he was out.

Nick tells him he’s ‘spend some time’ holding Noah’s hand as he walks around the room then finally letting him go letting him take some steps for himself.

“Now, if Noah had independently pulled himself out of nowhere and walked across the room and my husband witnessed it – there would be nothing to scold,” she said.

‘But the fact that my husband helped her into the big moment knowing it was likely to happen – now it’s unacceptable.’

Nikolina went on to say there was an unwritten rule forbidding parents from trying to get their toddler to walk for the first time unless both were present and that she later witnessed Noah walk unaided.

She says while she has taken no action against her husband, she hopes he has learned his lesson and she will be able to witness the first steps of their second child.

Despite the humorous tone, the readers did not hold back by calling Nicolina ‘titled’.

‘Get over that and yourself! Children don’t reach milestones when it’s convenient for their parents!!’ wrote one woman.

‘Let go of yourself miss!!! A lot of people have missed their child’s first steps, it doesn’t change the excitement when you actually see them do it themselves!,’ exclaimed the second.

‘I waited four and a half years to see the first move I never thought I would see with my middle girl. I’m just grateful that the child reached the milestone,” another commented.
