You Know What Is A Shame?

That my kid can't function in society...

Haters Gonna Hate

You know it's funny....  I thought about how controversial my FUCK YOU post would be to some sensitive readers.  Obviously, not everyone swears (although the vast majority do), but I think most people understand that they are said... and upon occasion they are repeated by children.  And if you don't take yourself to seriously, well, it is pretty damn funny when it happens.

Seeing as I hardly ever blog I find it reasonably amazing that anyone still reads it, so I thank you for the audience.  I am blown away that someone who vehemently disagrees with everything I say and do reads it.  But I guess that is a compliment of some sort.  I never did understand that impulse, I just couldn't fill my day looking for that kind of negativity.  

You know what Tony Robbins says... if you are having trouble with a relationship in your life, you should change your participation or change your perception.

So, considering that this is clearly an ongoing and vexing relationship (to you)... maybe stop reading? Mull it over.  Your readership has no effect on my day (especially as I wasn't aware of it), but it seems to really upset yours.  

But I can see the level of hate you feel toward me... it's very similar to how I feel about Adam Lanza... so I get it.  That seems like a perfectly reasonable amount of hate to have toward a stranger that has absolutely nothing to do with and no bearing on you or your life.  

The funny thing is... if you ever saw me and my kids at the park or the grocery store you would have a mad crush on us.  For real.  You don't know a family that is more kind, generous, and loving, with a desire and impulse to serve others and treat people with respect.  You just don't.

Now, I should be clear that I would NEVER let my children communicate in the way you have in these comments.  I'm raising them better than that.  But saying FUCK YOU in the car, by ourselves... yeah... I'm gonna laugh to myself... remind her that that isn't an appropriate word and move on.

Maybe you should, too?

At Least We're Modeling Appropriate Conflict Resolution Skills (Now With Disclaimer!!!)

"Hey we should go up to that guy and say...

'Fuck you!

I hate you!

If you cut down those trees...

I'm going to kill you!'"

Baby exclaimed,

as we drove past a tree service removing a tree

at an abandoned office complex.

Disclaimer:  I'm almost ALWAYS being sarcastic... the only way to misread my posts is to read them literally.  If you don't have a sense of humor and tend to read things as they are written, this isn't a good post for you.

Conscientious Objector

"If she can't read your email and pick out the main points, why should I have to read this and pick out the main points?"  Kid queries during homework.

Good fucking question.
