Do You Have a License for that Child?

Check out this terrific post on Morphing into Mama. It manages to be funny, poignant, clever, and pointed in the space of 500 words or so. I laughed out loud and sighed ruefully within seconds. I particularly like the discussion of parenting instincts towards the end. So well done! Excellent writing, and an excellent point as well. Good stuff.

A Couple Find Refuge In Their Love
The dead wild hog in their front yard is drawing flies. They sit side by side Saturday in the incredible mass of rubble and ruin dumped onto their lives by Hurricane Katrina.

I loved this link! Thank you for sharing!
(You know--when I'd whine to my parents about something my younger siblings got/were allowed to do/got away with/etc. they used to tell me simply, "Sorry. You were our practice child. Now we know better."
I think they were only half-kidding!)

Normally I delete spam, but that one is so bizarre, I think I'll leave it for the entertainment value. It's the Salvadore Dali of comments. Surreal.

Lory: Hmmm, I'd be a practice child, too, which might explain the incredible spoiling I, too, witnessed. "Practice child". LOL. No, I don't think they were entirely kidding.

MIM: I loved it. You're a wise woman, and now my little readership can benefit, too. Those who haven't discovered you already, that is!

I've always said there should be a aperenting licence.

In my fantasy world where I am absolute god & dictator there are contraceptives in the water & you can only get the antidote once you've passed your parenting exams. It's full of great, well adjusted, useful members of society, and no over-population either:-)

Even "absolute gods and dictators" need to know their limits?

aren't 'absolute' and 'limits' mutually exclusive? :-)

Again, great link, love MIM's outlook on life as a parent.
Duly bookmarked :-)
