    My biggest regret in teach mine to speak is that they Just. Won’t. Shut. Up.

    My God, they do prattle on! Dolly this, dragon that, boy over there, look at that fly, if I was a fairy I’d turn our cat into a dog and then give us 4 dogs and one dog would be for mummy and one for daddy, no the boy dog for mummy and the girl dog for daddy, no wait that means 3 boy dogs and 1 girl dog and that means I don’t need to turn the cat into a dog, but I want 3 more cats and then…

    LOL! But that’s important stuff. I mean, what would happen if you got the girl dog?

    Hahahah. The fact that i still find your kid adorably cute tells me i’m NOT ready to be a mom yet.

    Good points raised here, (or rather, those bits I could easily read). I suffer from color blindness (protanopia to be exact). I mostly use Konqueror browser (no idea if that is of any importance), and a lot of your site is hard for me to read. I know that it is not your problem really, nevertheless it would be nice if you would take into account color blind visitors when carrying out your next web page design.

    I have been regretting the teaching of my children to have their own thoughts and ideas too. Independent thinkers are nothing but trouble and my kids are still preschoolers! Love to chat with you on FB (nursemommylaughs) or visit my blog at

    Great stuff; love the blog. Our talkative smart alec little first grade princess has decided that it’s more fun to say her Spanish vocabulary in odd & peculiar ways, as it always gets the attention she’s seeking. I.e., Instead of “adios,” she now will shout out “ooodiaaasss” – regardless of where we are and who might be listening. Our fault: We laughed the first time she did it- advantage Samantha.

  9. Laurie Says:

    Thanks–and I know what you mean. Now that my son is older I hope I have mastered the art of not laughing at all the crazy stuff he does!

    Wow, I really love your rants. They are very quirky and have a whole lot of truth to them. It’s sad to say it, but I fear that I may have things in common with your son. And here I thought I might be an exception to the teenager stereotype. I guess we are all alike in some ways.

  11. Laurie Says:

    Hey they aren’t rants. They’re…oh. I guess they are rants! Thanks for reading!
