Today I said something to my sons that I will add to my ever-growing list of 'Things I Never Thought I Would Say As A Parent':
"Instead of taping yourself to the kitchen chair, how about doing something SLIGHTLY more constructive? I mean, I'm not talking about designing a rocket or anything. Just....not taping yourself to the kitchen chair!"
Others on my list:
"We do not step on our brother."
"We do not pretend our penis is a fire hose."
"We do not pee in the backyard in full view of the neighbours and all the friends they have over for their party."
There are many more things on my list but I can't remember any of them right now because I'm too tired. Last night I tried to take out my contacts three times before I realized I wasn't wearing any.
I'll update this list after I have a good night's sleep. So....at least by next month, then!
