yesterday i announced that i’m doing a podcast about sex. today i’m sharing some of my thoughts on the result of having sex.
my e-buddy, Tor Constantino, has just become a father once again and therefore isn’t getting any sleep, so i’ve written up a guest post for him today. God knows my writing is more effective than Lunesta.
here’s a snippet:
My kids are weird. Having my husband and I for parents really leaves them with no other option.
Odd is hard-wired in their DNA.
If you follow me on Twitter you’ve seen some of the stuff they say because I can’t keep it to myself. The world has to know. Like:
Daughter: “What’s a catheter?” I explain… “OH NO! I am never asking you anything again!”
Me: “Son, you’re putting your pants on backwards.” Him: “Don’t judge me.”
Probably my best/worst parenting moment ever was when my daughter was 4 1/2. She’s a pretty good kid most of the time, but this day…she had been a monster.
I may have even taken out a Craig’s List ad and offered her as “free to a good home.” The final straw was when she took a pair of scissors to her brand new school pants. I was speechless I was so angry and just…done. I knew if I put my hands on her I’d snap her neck, so I just stood there. Staring at her. Totally matter-of-fact she says, “Spankings don’t work and time-outs don’t work, so what are you going to do now, Mom?”
btw, “snippet” is strange word. don’t think i’ll use it again.
if you are at all curious about my method for completely screwing up my children, head over to Tor’s place and have a read.
what is the best thing your parents ever did to raise you right?
how did they get it wrong?
