Just found a lime in my purse. No idea where it came from. Sadly, no Tequila appeared with it.
My kids have a bad case of PGSD: Post-Grandparent Spoiled Disorder. For those of you unfamiliar with PGSD, it is characterized by a dramatic increase in whining, pouting, and tantrums, a loss of ability to use words like “please” and “thank you” and ask nicely, and the expectation that every whim will be entertained instantly.
If your children are suffering from PGSD, you may notice that they express unusual dietary requests, like fruit snacks for breakfast or popcorn for dinner. They may begin to whine if you don’t give them what they want within 2 nanoseconds. PGSD can also infect a child’s toys, causing their rooms to be suddenly overwhelmed with new acquisitions, usually ones that make noises or have impractical, small parts or are completely age-inappropriate. In rare extreme cases, PGSD can involve live pets, ear piercing, or the inexplicable introduction of chewing gum to your two-year-old. In older children, expect a considerable amount of heavy sighing.
Once again we’ve spent hours and hours and hours reading funny things, so you don’t have to. (See the sacrifices we’ve made for you?) We’ve picked out the very best, and put it all in one place so that you can put that 10 minutes of Mommy time (no matter how or where you find it) and put it to good use. Enjoy… and feel free to comment!
If I skip dinner and just go for the ice cream, do the calories balance out?
