Tell-Tale Signs of Questionable Parenting

  • Your two-year-old sighs and says "I need a cigarette!" (Although in toddler-speak it was more like "ciga-tett.")

  • She asks for coffee that same day.

  • When she sees something she likes she says "Cool, baby, cool," much like a stereotypical movie Beatnik might.

  • Your child knows most of the dialogue from any given episode of The Mighty Boosh.

No y'all, I ain't a bad parent. I'm just country, like Britney Spears.

Kidding about that country part. I don't allow my child to drink soda in lieu of milk or water, and she doesn't need her teeth whitened from poor diet and neglect. And I haven't shaved my head and vandalized a car with an umbrella. Yet.

LOL, my kid will ask for a coffee, and then walk around holding her head, claiming she has a headache because we're being too noisy.

Thats not questionable parenting, that is gritty, real life parenting. Don't let no one tell you otherwise ;0)

We went through a bad language period with Jen, but it was a misunderstanding. She was trying to name kitchen utensils.
Thanks for a laugh. I love coming over here.

ROFL. I used to watch this silly soap during the days, when my 3 yr old son (at the time - he's now 11) saw the main character, said his name and said he liked him, I realized it was time to tape and watch at night! LOL.

Hi Mary!
Why do you keep disappearing off the blogosphere?
I hope its not because your teaching your baby "cool baby, cool"

All I have to say is, "Where's the fork?"

(and maybe, I'm the type of dude that'll rap for food...)
