Parenting 102

Filed under: Kids — mikesdump @ 4:18 pm

The other day my parenting skills were put to the test. Isabelle and Erika were fighting (surprise, surprise) and after several minutes of unsuccessfully trying to block them out I thought maybe I should do something. Usually I wait until there is crying or silence. If there is crying it usually means one of them got their way. If there is silence then one of them could be suffocating the other.

As I got closer to hear what they were arguing about I heard something like this:

Erika: It’s my TV
Isabelle: No, It’s my TV
Erika: NO, IT’S MY TV
Isabelle: NOOOOO, IT’S MY TV

I’m sure you get the idea. Using my King Solomon like wisdom I yell down:


If that didn’t work then I would just split the TV in half. Easy!
Can you believe some people think it is hard to be a parent� sheesh!



  1. Sure…you’ll split their TV in half. But what if they’re arguing over the plasma? Or worse yet, the Wii? That’s a dark road you’re headed down. 🙂

    But keep passing out the parental advice – I’m sure I’ll be in the exact same boat in a few years.

  2. Split the plasma, no, that logic only works on the old TV that should be replaced.
