“No matter how calmly you try to referee, parenting will eventually produce bizarre behavior, and I’m not talking about the kids. Their behavior is always normal.” – Bill Cosby
Ok – I admit it. I’ve probably exhibited some strange behavior as a parent – at least strange for me. Before I had kids I was a even-tempered, mild-mannered, down-to-earth person.
But somehow the sight of ‘poop’ all over the walls from ‘The Diaper Genie’ exploration and another occasion when my 4-yr. old twins covered themselves (and the bathroom) head to toe in toothpaste and shampoo (see photo) – sent me to the ‘dark-side’.
(my twins are now 13 – Lord help me!)
The question is how do we keep our cool in the face of children exhibiting ‘normal’ behavior?
HUMOR!!! Which is why I’m such a fan of Erma Bombeck and Bill Cosby!
Living a ‘Balanced Life’ means finding the humor in situations. You may not feel like laughing in the moment (especially at 4am when these pictures were taken) – but if you can ask yourself ‘how will I feel about this years from now’ – you’ll realize this will probably be a very funny story to tell one day!
