Okay boys and girls today we are talking about how we could have been cool if it weren't for these kids of ours.
Honestly there are so many examples where do I begin? I'll go with this one. None of my children have entered into pre-school with scissor skills and I don't care. That makes me uncool for sure. The fact is my children are dangerous with scissors and they cut stuff off with scissors that was not meant to come off. Such as? Such as the hair of baby dolls, parts of their clothes, parts of their shoes, bed linens, etc. I am not going to mention any one specific name but I think we all know who she is.
Granted her scissor performance has matured over the last 6 months, she just turned 7. But at age 3 when scissor skills usually get started, let's just say I wasn't ready.
I have been "talked to" by everyone of my kids pre-school teachers about how behind they are in this skill and how they need the opportunity to blah blah blah. I smile and say, "Oh yes you are exactly right we will have to work on that for sure." In my mind I am thinking no way. Uncool parent right here!
Lil Bro is now 4 and he has absolutely no scissor skills what so ever. Why? Because he has an uncool Mom who is kind of paranoid with the scissor action. I should be embarrassed and say that I am going to work on it. That's what I should say.
Do you hear me saying that? Nope.
So there I will take my uncool parent award and display it with pride.
