We’re traveling this weekend. Kids are a little older, little wiser, little more demanding and a little bigger than our last big road trip. When this goes up we’ll be settling in for night one of our adventure. I’m hoping it is going well. If that is not the case, I have some pretty accurate takes on popular parenting phrases that will fit the weekend.
These are certainly more accurate for my house anyway.
Screaming Baby on Board
Stick Figure Families, but with more eye poking.
Pardon Our Mess, We’re Making Memories….and saving up for therapy.
Live, Laugh, Love, Leave Your Brother Alone!
“We just want the baby to possess spatial awareness that will prevent it from constantly running into sharp corners.”
Diaper bags full of Doritos and, like, one extra diaper maybe.
“It’s splash water all over the bathroom while mom and dad try desperately to clean any part of you at all before succumbing to the fact that we are so very much not in control of the situation!”
In this house we say please maybe 30% of the time.
Your mother and I have agreed to see the same situation, interpret things completely differently from one another, tell you children two very conflicting answers and then wonder what is happening. We are so, so tired.
We try to limit screen time to just when we adults need a little break.
Bedtime has a strictly enforced +/- 30 minute window.
No whining! Unless, of course, you really want to make a point and have it ignored. Then by all means, go ahead.
