Parenting Success

Tuesday, 13 January 2009

During a recent lunch, when Beernut was eating his churro, ZaydeGiraffe reminded him that–when she was younger–Tante Pepgiraffe was a churro seller at Disneyland.

ZaydeGiraffe: “Maybe when you’re older, you’d like to work at Disneyland.  Teens seem to enjoy doing that.  You know, they call Disneyland the happiest place on earth.”
Beernut:  “I don’t think Disneyland is the happiest place on earth.”
ZaydeGiraffe:  “Really.  What do YOU think IS the happiest place on earth.”
Beernut:  “Home.”

    Wow, that really floored me. As a child, home was the scariest place on Earth. It’s so amazing to me that your kid so obviously feels the opposite. Tha is exactly as it should be, no?
