Friday is here again, a reason in itself to smile. The following items may assist.
Byter Leo M sent me a set of cartoons and images headed Modern parents???!!!!.....
Leo’s items are reprinted below.
It also sets the theme for the day: Parents and Parenting
For weeks a six-year-old lad kept telling his first-grade teacher about the baby brother or sister that was expected at his house. One day, the mother allowed the boy to feel the movements of the unborn child. The six-year old was obviously impressed, but made no comment. Furthermore, he stopped telling his teacher about the impending event. The teacher finally sat the boy on her lap and said, "Tommy, whatever has become of that baby brother or sister you were expecting at home?"
Tommy burst into tears and confessed, "I think Mummy ate it!"
The above reminds me of a story told to me by a pre-school childcare worker at the pre-school attended by my daughter, Acacia, when she was a nipper. She had been watching the worker breastfeed her baby and asked what it was doing. The childcare worker replied that the baby was drinking milk. This prompted my daughter to think for a moment and then ask “What’s in the other one? Food?”
Little Girl to her friend: "I'm never having kids. I hear they take nine months to download."
A young man agreed to baby-sit one night, so a single mother could have an evening out. At bedtime, he sent the youngsters upstairs to bed and settled down to watch football. One child kept creeping down the stairs, but the young man kept sending him back to bed. At 9.00pm the doorbell rang, it was the next-door neighbour, Mrs. Brown, asking whether her son was there. The young man brusquely replied, "No."
Just then a little head appeared over the bannister and shouted, "I'm here, Mum, but he won't let me go home!"
