All Because I Love You

The passage below came from a girlfriend's Facebook status.  It just rang so true with me and reminds me so much of my Dad.

When I was in high school I really thought that the rules did not apply to me.  I was bored and restless.  As a 15 year old tenth grader I went off campus for lunch almost every day.  Sophomores were not supposed to leave campus for lunch.  Well, all sophomores but me!!  There was a certain day of that year when I came back from off campus lunch and my Dad was sitting in his truck in the parking space right next to us. My Dad was not the person I wanted to see in the parking lot of school.  Ever.  Subsequently, I ate lunch in the Principal's office for an entire semester after that.  Good times.  Good times.

Now that I'm a Mom I see that we all do the best we can as parents and sometimes it's a lot less fun than we want it to be.  I can only imagine how many parking lots I will sit in waiting for The Princess.  Oy vay!

I get it, Daddy.  Thank you.




PROMISE TO MY CHILDREN

I will stalk you
freak out on you
lecture you
drive you crazy
be your worst nightmare
embarrass you in front of your friends
hunt you down like a bloodhound...
all because I LOVE YOU.

When you understand that, I will know you are a responsible adult.
You will never find someone who loves you & cares about you more than your parents!

And it is NOT fun to be so stalkerish, crazy, mean. Poor parents...we have it rough. I will be driving my boys to school if need be. Or even if the need NOT be there...I might do it anyway. LOL
