Riddle Me This #4

When one is motivated to blog on a semi-regular schedule, some parenting duties may fall to the wayside. Laundry, grocery shopping, pet care, making occasional eye contact while your sweet offspring are trying to share their innermost feelings and concerns with you. You know, the small things.

So as the TV program switched over from Kung Fu Panda Legends of Awesomeness to Spongebob Squarepants without my knowledge or consent and my three children sat transfixed while eating a dinner of macaroni and cheese and some lettuce, Mr. Snark entered the room and posed the following query, henceforth known as riddle #4:

“What is the opposite of helicopter parenting?”

Answered provided by middle child, MelloYello:

“Submarine parenting.”

You just can’t please some people.

Glub, glub.

    Oh dear I had to laugh at this. I just started blogging in January, but have discovered that every post usually means a load of washing or a sink full of dishes didn’t get done.

      I neglected all of those chores before I started blogging. At least now I feel a little justified in doing so. Sacrifices must be made in the name of art. Or, I’m just lazy. I prefer the former explanation.
