It’s hard being a parent. Our kids need so many things from us, like food, shelter, and iPads, and we’re over here working our asses off to provide for them and not turn them into a bunch of a-holes. The wisdom we have to offer would shape them into outstanding members of society if they would only listen, amirite?
You guys, I’ve been doing a little listening of my own, and it turns out, they are hearing us. Unfortunately, they aren’t absorbing our lessons on how to put one’s books away, rather they are hearing the actual words coming out of our mouths.
A few snippets from our house to suggest my children’s ears, do in fact, work.
“Well, doesn’t that sound fun!” from my four-year-old daughter on the phone with her grandma.
“Seriously?” or its cousin, “Are you serious right now?” This is the girl again, and she didn’t get that from me. Seriously, she didn’t.
“Argggghhhh!” Both of my kids roar like a bear or a crazy person when they are mad or frustrated. I say they get that from their dad, he swears it’s from me. Truthfully, it’s both of us, but sometimes shizz gets really annoying around here, so what are we supposed to do?
Here are a few more examples of my kids’ fantastic listening ears.
What do your kids say that shows they hear you? Tell me in the comments! Be a good sharer, okay?
