I wonder that too

On the way to the store this afternoon, my son was particularly irritable and whiny. I realized, and exclaimed aloud, that I forgot to give him a snack. My ever-observant and critical four-year-old daughter piped up from the back, “What kind of a mother ARE you?!”

  1. Lol! Just this week, I was telling my 6 year old son the story of the boy who cried wolf. At the end, I asked if he understood and he said, “yeah that boy had really bad parents. Who doesn’t go looking for their kids?” The morale of the story was totally lost on him.


  2. Sorry to say that you’re a wonderful mother compared to me. I was so busy planning the one-year-old birthday party for my firstborn that I forgot to give him lunch on his first birthday. I think we have a picture of him picking up a handful of dirt to see if it was edible, which was when I remembered he hadn’t had lunch.
