My Children Would Never Do That

This blog from Scary Mommy is a hilarious look at parenthood. I’m sure you have a few of your own “My Children Would Never” to add to this list.  Here’s one mine:

#1 No matter what my child does , I will ALWAYS maintain my sense of humor.

Well, I had to dump this one after about 30 seconds.   There is a huge different between “as often as I can” and “always”.  What I have found is the words ‘always’ and ‘never’ are invariably unsustainable.  Although I know intellectually one of the greatest gifts I can give my child is the ability to laugh at herself,  it’s pretty darn unrealistic to expect myself to maintain a devil-may-care attitude when I feel like I am living out yet another messy scene from Groundhog’s Day!
