It’s Not All Mary Poppins

I did my best, really

Even the most confident of parents, with the very nicest of kids, ends up, every so often, looking at their offspring and wondering, truly, truly wondering…

Who the hell raised you?

  1. teens? and from the labels, I’ll assume “teens and hygiene” probably is hair. So. Did someone dye their hair green? Grow a beard on only the left side of his face? Pierce some odd part? What are we in for when our crazy kids become teens Mary? Please share. Warn us before its too late to sell them on eBay while they’re still cute!

    Follow the link and you’ll find out! It’s nothing so dramatic as any of those, but possibly more disgusting. Pop on over and see!

  4. I wore Keds all winter long until I was in my twenties. And then, one day, it dawned on me….I could be WARM. So I bought boots.
    On the hygiene side, I once caught a cat rubbing her face against the straw/tube attached to my night-time water cup. She was rubbing, and scratching her lips and gums all over it, and leaving gunk inside. No idea how long THAT had been going on!

    I was in university before I discovered coats that covered my butt, and layering — and, oh the thrill! — I was WARM. Who knew??

    I’m cringing at the thought of slurping down cat mouth-gunk with my night-time sips of water. That’s even worse than litter-feet dipping. Bleah!

  5. OMG, I have a four year old that is not potty trained and I swear I don’t know where that kid learned up anything up until this point because he does not fit in our family…he is a beast, I tell you a beast! Temper tantrums at 4 that cause his shoes to go flinging across the room and omg, he is a beast a beast a beast!
