Crying Pic #354. Not That The Others Are Counting.

 Friday's Words of Wisdom to My Girls From Their Mother:

She isn't going to be a non-productive member of society and/or a Democrat just because she is crying in 9/10ths of the pictures we have of her.  I promise.

If the optometrist tells you to wear your glasses, he means it.  They don't give you glasses for no reason.  And when you finally start wearing them and your 3 year headache finally goes away I am totally going to say I told you so.


Always find out your baby's gender at the ultrasound.  The stress of not knowing is not worth the surprise.  I saw a TV show today where people were having triplets and they didn't know the genders!  This is crazy - and it is also grandmother abuse.  If you do that to me I will make you miserable until you schedule another ultrasound.

disclaimer:  no one is pregnant in our family......I just like to start nagging years early to indoctrinate them all a little better. 

Laser hair removal is not a prudent graduation gift.

Everything in life is not always going to be exactly fair, no matter what Disney Channel tells you.  Sometimes you are going to have to work harder and do better, for no reason. 

If you put your kid in a baseball league where they don't keep score, I will keep score on the sidelines and make sure the kids know if they won or lost.  Where is the motivation otherwise?

If you aren't playing enough or at the position you want in work, volleyball, cheerleading, what have you, practice more, work harder, try harder until you get there.  Don't whine and make excuses and cry about it.  That will never get you anywhere.

You can live the life you imagine for yourself.
Plan it out, and then do what it takes to get there.
It can be done.  You can do it.  Don't let anyone tell you otherwise.
