The list

Me (picking up phone): *sighhhhhhhhh* Hello? *uuuuggggggghhhhhhh*

My Sister Beth: What's wrong?

Me: I'm sitting here next to Ellie. She's glued to the TV watching Barney while eating a Happy Meal. I can now literally cross every last thing off my list of Things I Will Never Allow My Kids to Do. I think part of my soul just died.

Beth: Lighten up. Nobody likes an overachiever.

Me: I knew I could count on you to make me feel better.

Beth: You're welcome.

:) Cheer up I think we all make that list of things we will never let our children do, then they get here and they whine and cry and throw fits and suddenly macdonalds and cartoons have bright shiny halos!
