Ever feel the words you tell your little ones come back to haunt you? I do.
When I see my 3-year old slacking when eating his lunch, I tell him to eat faster. He looks at me, points to the food he is chewing then says, “I have something in my mouth, Daddy. One food at a time, remember?”
When I see my 3-year old crashing his toy cars like crazy in the kitchen wall, I tell him to slow down lest he gets his cars broken. When I drive five miles over the speed limit, my 3-year old tells me: “Drive slowly, Daddy. You don’t want to broke the car.”
When I watch my favorite TV shows at night, my 3-year old looks at me then runs up the stairs. “Mommy,” I can hear him say. “Daddy’s watching too much TV!”
Too smart, perhaps.
Blogs worth forwarding to friends and relatives:
Cynical Mom. I have no idea who writes this blog. But if you want some honesty about parenting, read her. “I know some women fall in love with their babies the instant they are born,” she writes. “That’s not how it worked for me.”
Arurisan. Aruri gives you a lot of ideas—from converting a chair into a jewelry organizer to creating party favors from clear glasses and candles. She’ll give you something to think about. “A trip to Maldives or Mauritius,” she writes, “costs the same as two Macbooks.”
