My friend Anita shared this:
Last week my youngest two children discovered a fly in the house. Pure terror! One screamed her head off as it landed on her head. Every time it flew by they screamed and cried. I quickly reassured them that he was friendly, his name is George and he is our new pet. Problem solved! Now they look for him, share their food with him and protect him from potential dangers (like Daddy’s swatting dish towel). Not looking forward to the day he disappears.”
I was surprised to find so many people posting on Facebook that Kate Middleton had a baby girl. Do we really care? Although one mom had a great take on the whole thing. She wrote, “I kind of want to tell my daughter that in Britain, there’s a PRINCESS who just had a BABY who is also a PRINCESS, but I’m afraid that she might explode.”
Now that is news worthy.
The tiniest scroll down found this gem from the same friend.
“I’m pretty sure there’s a lizard loose in my car and I’m not sure what to do about it. Unrelatedly, is anyone in the market for a used 2001 Toyota Sienna? Leather seats, 6-disc CD changer, free lizard.”
Is it any wonder why I like her?
Have you ever told your children a reassuring story only to have to blow up in your face?
