KidDictionary – Parents say the darndest things

By: TheKidDictionary letters

Parents have THE hardest job, as they must wrangle, care for and teach the most difficult people in all of society–Their children. Diffusing bombs amidst enemy fire in a war zone? Easy!  Welding I-beams on skyscrapers 100 stories high in the dead of winter? Piece of cake! Potty-training a two-year old? Damn near impossible!

To lighten their cumbersome load, let’s give them a good laugh and the ability to put into words the unique, unusual and sometimes confounding experiences related to raising kids. Parenting is hard.
