I'm trying this Blog Hop for the first time today. I found it awhile ago, but never felt called to answer the theme. But today, I feel I should. The theme of the week is: "Three Things Parents Should Teach Their Kids" and as someone who would rather dig out their own kidney than have kids, I think an outsider perspective might be nice...
"Three Things Parents Should Teach Their Kids..."
1. Quit licking everything. Going to the store watching the kid with the monkey leash/backpack lick everything in sight makes me want to puke. To think that I might eventually touch that cart or hanger or door knob. Unless you are attempting to infect your child with swine flu, step number one is to get their mouth off of anything that isn't digestable.
2. They actually aren't any more special than anyone else. Just because Mommy and Daddy love you and spoil you rotten, doesn't mean the center of the universe revolves around you in the middle of the supermarket. Not getting your Dora the Explorer Chocolate Bar because you hit Baby Tommy upside the head for looking at you weird is not the end of the world. This attitude is what forms supermodels, pageant queens, and all around diva bitches.
3. Life doesn't get better as you get older.Let's face it, we all would trade places with the kid that believes in Santa and happily twirls in ignorance and bliss. If the worst thing in your day is a crust on peanut butter sandwiches, I think your life is pretty swank.
