momma said there'd be days like this... xoxoxox
sav; Aye missus! There are some things our kids have to learn for themselves. Today was one of those days. We just have to be be there to pick up the pieces sometimes! :¬)xoxoxoxox
Both good lessons, if hard learned, practically and metaphorically...
And it's so hard to let them learn these lessons for themselves, isn't it? xoxoxoxo
Sometimes you KNOW it's going to burn but you do it anyway just to feel something.
Lessons everyone has to learn.
Number 3; Having kids is such a hassle. (for Map)
Number 4: Alcohol may not fix all of life's problems... But Ryvita and Nutella is certainly a step in the right direction.. :D
Memories of my # 1 son and sunburn - over and over!
Leah; :¬).xxxPon; That's 'cos we know what it feels like! :¬)xxx
UB; And we've all been there! :¬)Scott; Aye! :¬)
Tempo; I can honestly say that having kids was never a hassle for me. 'Adventure' would be a more appropriate word! :¬)Kate; At least now you know!(You looked almost normal today!) :¬)xxx
Pat; We never stop being parents I guess! :¬)xxx
And the final lesson---"I will embarrass you in front of your new boyfriend. Deal with it, I'm your father"
Clyde; That's a given! :¬)
The hardest part of those lessons is that "watching a train wreck in progress" feeling; torn between stepping in to help and knowing that sometimes, you just have to stand in semi-horror, watch it happen and offer to clean up the mess. :)I'm betting your hugs are good for bad and great days.
hope; And sometimes we just CAN'T step in, so we have to let things happen and hope all will be fine and lessons ARE learned. :¬)xxx
Very intriguing lessons. I hope the learning of them was not too painful.
Madame DF; One of them was painful and embarrassing for the individual concerned, though I suspect the mortification will last longer than the illness! :¬)xxx
My fav lesson was fae my Da who let me drink a bottle of babycham(canny mind if that's right)and a bag o pickled onion monster munch. I learned how to pray to the ceramic god aka the loo.
Sausage; That's exactly what Number 1 was about, except I didn't 'let her', and it wasn't Babycham! (I think she's still recovering. There was lots of 'talking to God on the big white telephone!)(The thoughts of eating pickled onion monster-munch makes ME want ta heave! :¬)
Some people become addicted to putting their hand in the fire. Hope she isn't one of them
Kim; I think this was a 'one-off', a sort of 'Baptism Of Fire'! :¬0
lesson no. 5: love is all we need! sounds like kate and helena both have that in abundance!
GYPSYWOMAN; They do. They do! :¬)xxx
Lesson No. 6, never eat anything that you're dared to...Pearl
Pearl; That's something I've never done, then again I'll eat most things without being dared! :¬)xxx
