They should replace the egg hunt with hunger games.

Friend of ours, who didn't realize that the term helicopter parent is a pejorative, got an aquarium altered at her kid's daycare. Inside the aquarium was a ceramic hollowed-out skull that the fish could swim thru. Nope, that'll cause nightmares. Get rid of it or I'm taking the messiah somewhere else.

How can the poor kid concentrate on his Zombie shooting iPod app when there is a plastic skull in the fish tank.

NM, I misread the initial post.

Jesus fucking Christ. As long as V H Jr's preschool teachers don't kill him, I'm cool.

I think you are/were my mother.

I'm just so tired of the mommy brigade, that's all.

The family that stores its vomit in jars under the beds together...WINS together. Eyes on the prize, my fat fuck of a Precious. :naughty:

This is what my mom did to me, basically. And the ironic thing is, I look back at pictures from when I was a kid, and I wasn't even remotely fat (especially by today's standards). I was never gangly, but I was by no means fat. But my mom monitored everything I ate starting at a very early age, put me on Weight Watchers at age 9, etc. I basically became anorexic in 9th grade, then became bulimic, and I still struggle with that to this day. There was a point in my 20's where I was taking up to 20 laxatives a day. So yeah, this is this poor little girl's future, because her mom is so afraid of getting fat herself, she projects her neuroses on her kid. Seriously, how did I end up with the one Jewish mother on the planet who doesn't eat? My mom is an otherwise awesome person, too.

(I realize this is probably way TMI, but this story pisses me off so much and hits way too close to home).

This is why I am tired of the mommy brigade (I used to volunteer at the animal shelter with the woman who wrote this on Facebook. She was seemingly normal at the time. I hope I am not this insufferable. Am I this insufferable?):

I love Kid's not so common eating habits. This morning, I made him Breakfast Quinoa (red and white quinoa cooked w/ rice milk and cinnamon then mixed with frozen berries). I thought the breakfast was a little bland, but Kid was delighted! This probably isn't said often, but I'm a little jealous of my 2 year old's wonderfully unblemished taste buds. Within the past month, he's also requested leeks (yum), grapefruit (the best ever!), cabbage, brussels sprouts (oh boy!), green peppers, celery and green apples. He's delighted to help me pick out produce at the store. I'm not saying the kid doesn't love a cookie, but his excitement for fruits and veggies is like nothing I've ever seen.

It'll be great how much he's teaching her when he's setting fires under his bed.

did you give him kale, too?

the only thing i believe the kid requested was the apples.... other than that, she put shit in front of him, and he ate it...

he's 2 for corn's sake!

That's a pretty good example of information that never needs to be shared with another fucking human being in this world.

You don't just shovel the worst shit down your kid's throat. Good for you. Parent of the fucking year.
