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
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!
