There is precious little that I have said “I will never…” about
Not even when I was militantly childfree.
I have plenty of friends who said things like:
I will never allow my kids to watch tv
I will never allow my kids to be disruptive in restuarants
I will never make my kids buttered noodles when the rest of us are eating ratatouille.
My kids will never be rude little screaming demons in stores
My child will never wear a leash
My kids will never waste hours of their lives playing video games.
It’s just as well I never said any of it because apart from the butter noodles thing my kids have done all of it.
And they only haven’t done the buttered noodle thing because I have never made ratatouille.
Among the very few things I have stated I will never do are:
Host a sleepover
Have a kiddy party at Chuck E Cheese
Host one of those in home parties, like Pampered Chef or PartyLite.
I just printed out the invitations for the backyard camping party Havoc wants to have for his birthday in 2 weeks,
A month after that? I’m hosting a Tupperware party.
Thank you GOD the Chuck E Cheese is more than an hour away.
