“Crappy Parenting Law #7: The very first time a child dons new clothes, they will be stained forever.” – Amber Dusick, Parenting: Illustrated with Crappy Pictures
Another quickie, between loads of laundry.
We’ve been on vacation, which maybe will be worth blogging about in the future. Fun, bewilderment, sore feet, more fun, gettin’ snippy at times (as required on any vacation of more than 2 days), and a little more fun. But for now, exhaustion. And pre-treating stains, and all that jazz.
One of the many many fun bits of our vacation was the opportunity to read this book, which is from one of my favorite bloggers, Amber Dusick. Her Parenting, Illustrated with Crappy Pictures blog makes me laugh on even the dreariest of days. Imagine a whole book of snippets, 214 pages of laughs and not a few snorts.
I tried really hard not to let my fellow plane-goers know I was laughing until I cried. There were a few times I had to cover a picture with my hand, because just looking at it made me start afresh. Laughing until you cry is one of life’s greatest feelings, which is why I now recommend Amber and her blog and book, for your reading pleasure.
Even if you’re not a parent, you probably know one. And you were definitely a kid, right? Might be something in there to make you snort, or at least chuckle.
