When discussing parenting, there is one thing you should always remember....Never say never. Ever. Because your child will do the one thing you say should never be done. For example, I've been blessed with a tenacious child. An opinionated child. A head-strong child. A child who knows her own mind better than anyone else and don't you go trying to convince her differently. The picture above is a few hours after betadine and bandaging her bloody blisters that she came home with one day after school. She got them from the monkey bars. "But, Momma, I HAVE to learn how to go all the way across. I HAVE TO!".
I said, "Never let your child handle bunnies. The child could drop the bunny and break its back.". Cue my little girl carrying bunnies everywhere, from the swing to the playhouse, to the bed, there is always a sneaked in bunny somewhere if she has her way.
Sister planted all these strawberry plants at our house. I used to see children with dirty fingernails and think "Why don't their parents make them wash up.". Then I had Sissy.
Never say girls are easy. They will sabatoge your swing and hang dinosaurs and tigers by their tails just waiting for Brother to come swing and get bonked on the head. "Busted, little girl. Busted.".
