As a parent I've said things I never thought would come out of my mouth. One of my favorites has always been "Don't lick the dog." Another of my favorites is "Cats don't wear chapstick." After those words escaped my mouth I immediately threw away all of my chapstick. You know, just in case that wasn't the first time she had tried to put it on the cats. Especially since she was trying to put it on the cat's butt. Gross.
Today was another of those priceless expressions. We were getting ready for Tae Kwon Do and trying to get out the door. Paige stopped at her toy box to pick something to bring with her. She decided she needed a pink princess tiara to wear during class. I actually said the words, "Sorry, Paige, but we can't wear a pink princess crown during Tae Kwon Do class."
How many parents have said that one?
