My Parenting Guide

At the risk of biting the hand that feeds me… Oh, wait, I do this sans recompense. I should say: At the risk of criticizing my superiors, the daily prompt is a bit strange today. Asking bloggers: “When is the last time you thought- I should write about this”, is like asking a proctologist: “When was the last time you snapped on a pair of rubber gloves and played pokemon?” It’s a daily occurrence, is it not? 

In answer to the prompt:

I’ve posted from my car while waiting for an endless freight train 

While squashed between two fatties in the middle seat of a full airplane

From the checkout line at Walmart, which is also known as Hell

I’ve posted when I should be working, I know you’d never tell 

While licensing my teen at the department of motor vehicles

Strapped into a hospital bed- just minutes post surgical…

Speaking of which, I must now contradict myself. I’ve been meaning to write about this since it happened, but I’m just so busy with all this great stuff I do, that it has completely slipped my mind. If you’ve read my posts during the past few weeks you know I’ve had my appendix removed and as such won a two night dream vacation at an all inclusive resort (hospital). 

I failed to mention that when I returned home after those two days of confinement, I found that my house was sparkling clean. I had been trying to persuade my teenagers to pitch in around the house FOREVER. I had tried every technique/torture device known to man to achieve this unattainable goal, including threatening to write about their sloth: “Don’t make me pull out my pen. Pick up that wet towel right now, or this moment in time will be recorded and released into cyberspace before the hard wood floor shows any sign of water damage.” Who was I kidding, no one cared. 

But one little medical scare, and out come the mops and buckets. So, now I know what I have to do. Feigning illness is my new parenting technique. I’ll let you know when my new parenting guide hits Amazon.
