There are times that I am proud of my kids and other times that I am shocked that I suck so hard at parenting.
Other times I have both emotions at once.
Like yesterday when we were getting ready to outside to plant some seeds that The Goon Squad got at preschool.
I was feeling pretty good. I had completed all of my assignments on time, I met all of my deadlines and I still had time to do good learning projects with the kids. We were going to plant seeds in our “garden”. (You know how I feel about outside, but I suck it up for the kids.)
That is when my four year old son said “Let’s get the fuck out of here.”
I froze in horror.
It was just us, but my baby had dropped an F bomb. I was shocked.
But I was also oddly proud. Good usage, son. English is a tricky language, but he seems to have it down.
My boy is ready for kindergarten. I hope kindergarten is ready for the boy.
