The cynical crayon

I'm Cynical,mostly facetious,always bespectacled & hilarious. This where I chronicle the trials and tribulations of life as a stay at home mom.

OK lets not oversell, my friends think that I'm funny; Is that like having your mom say you're pretty?

Mommy, I don’t like the sound of the garage door opening. When it opens that means you are leaving and that makes me sad.

Good times at the splash pad! Water + warm weather = Fun

Another wet and rainy day….If this keeps up it’s going to be a long week.

Truth!

In spite of the six thousand manuals on child raising in the bookstores, child raising is still a dark continent and no one really knows anything. You just need a lot of love and luck - and, of course, courage.

My daughter loves to swim, in our backyard pool.

But when we go to swimming lessons, she starts to act the fool!

She is good in the water, but there is room for improvement. 

Because as of now, kicking and screaming have become her trademark movements.

She stomps her feet and pouts, followed by lots of tears.

Meanwhile the other kids probably want to block their ears. 

I’m not ready to give up, despite my reservations. 

Hopefully by next session, the tantrums take a permanent vacation. 

This is not only funny! But in some cases 100% accurate.
