She wrote: "I came home from work late tonight and Calvin asked if he could still watch tv. I said no because it’s late and it’s time for bed. We can read a book. He said 'we can either watch tv or I’m going to put all the chairs down.' I said 'go ahead!' He told me they have to stay that way until morning. Done deal. Now everyone is asleep. #parentingwin #calvinthinkshewon."

Fellow parents were quick to comment on the post, with one writing: "Yep, pick your battles right. You're a good mama," while another wrote: "Aww. I think you definitely won the battle." A third added: "You do what you gotta do to get the kids to bed!!!!"
