Parenting Lessons

So, in October, I’ll hit three years as a parent, which I figure makes me an expert. Hence, I will bless you, my anonymous readers with my best words of wisdom.

Lesson #1: Do not ever say the words, “you can buy one thing, any thing you want” while in the dollar store. Yes, everything is just a dollar. Yes, handing your child $1.06 in exact change and watching them peruse the many goodies is fun and semi-educational. But if you say anything, and don’t like to go back on your word without extremely compelling reasons, well, that’s how you end up with a lime-green plastic recorder in your house.

Do as I say, not as I did.
