bipolar mom shares her insights on everyday life

After thinking about it, I decided just to tell Karen the truth.  I told her that the song was inappropriate because it words in it that dealt with sex and stuff about sex that was not acceptable.

She looked disappointed for about 15 seconds and then said, “Okay!”  She chose Miley Cyrus “7 Things.” 

Oh, and the rest of the songs she chose passed my tests.

    Sounds like a good decision to me and it seemed to satisfy her. Well done, Mom!

  2. The truth is always the best policy…unless the 6 yr old, having heard rumors from the girl at the pool in FL, asks you if the Easter Bunny is real. You, not wanting to start a precedent of lying to your child, tell her the truth…she is crushed. you then say, “Would you rather I hadn’t told you?” and she solemnly replies, “Yes.” Note to self…lie about Santa Claus, the tooth fairy, etc…lie like a dog.

  3. By the way, isn’t your situation a perfect example of how we, as parents, overthing and analyze things to death while the kids just say, “okay” and move on with their day?
