Parenting

As most of you know, I live in the house with two of my three children (note: the eldest seems to be holding her own in the “real world”) . I love them ALL dearly and would fearlessly throw myself between them and death without hesitation (or conscious thought). I couldn’t ask for anything more and wouldn’t.

However…

I found this post, at Today’s Musings, which I am going to share the highlights of here, because…well… there is much wisdom in humor. And I can relate…and laugh with appreciation for her viewpoint!

August 13, 2008

It is a proven scientific fact that some animals eat their young when they turn into mouthy adolescents. In the wild kingdom, formerly cute and cuddly baby critters turn into gollum-like creatures once the horror-mones kick in.

… Take evil chickens for example…

Deceptively innocent, isn't it.

Do not be fooled by the fluffy exterior. Inside lurks the mind of an evil dictator.

Evil chickens begin their days as adorable peeping fluff balls suitable for any Easter basket. (That is, if you don’t mind salmonella-bearing feces mixed among the Cadbury eggs.) But they don’t stay little and cute, oh no. They grow. They lose their cuddly appearance and turn into gangly, bad tempered, moody beasts …

Worried chicken Moms try and try. They make them say “Please” and “Thank you” at the water dish. They show them how to earn a respectable living scratching for earthworms in the dirt. They teach them not to fear the inferior beings that present them with daily fresh food and water, and to assert themselves by scaring the bejeezus out of the the big one at every opportunity.

And still they rebel…

This could be the outcome.

This is all YOUR fault, Mom!
