Upon seeing this funny meme from our friends at ChewigemUSA (where all the cool “kids” with sensory issues shop), we put our imperfect brains together and came up with some other things no imperfect parent would say.
“Come to the dentist, Honey. It will be fun.”
“Your clipping your nails again?”
“Sweetie, I think ski pants in July is a great fashion choice.”
“Honey, did you know your socks are inside out?”
“That’s so nice of the Principal to call me every day.”
“I sure wish your teachers gave you more homework.”
About “perfect” parents:
“I love reading your child’s college acceptance letters on Facebook.”
“Sure, I would love to come over for coffee and compare our children’s milestones.”
About being social:
“Another birthday party invite? This is getting expensive.”
“Your friends are coming over again?”
About special education:
“There’s some really interesting stuff in that Parent Right’s brochure.”
“This IEP draft is good, but I wish it were a bit longer.”
“Oh goodie! Report cards are coming today!”
“Not my kid.”
“We don’t need a lawyer.”
“A little change never hurt anyone.”
“I can’t stand those support groups where the women sit around, complain, and drink wine.”
What would you NEVER say?
You’re brushing your hair, again?
Can we play Super Mario Briothers some more?
What? You’re brushing your teeth again?.Really?
You don’t have to get dressed today
Fashion: “Underwear are definitely optional.”
” Socks are so last ( winter) season, particularly when we go sledding or skiing. ”
” It’s great that you wear the same outfit for a year. I never having to do laundry or go shopping. “
I am so lucky to have a boss who doesn’t mind if I take 12 school calls everyday.
