When you’re having a baby these days, there are lots of must-have items every parent puts on their shopping list. Cribs, car seats, strollers, clothes, parenting books, poopy diaper receptacles, and of course, baby monitors.
For our first baby, we had a simple, straight-out-of-the-Stone-Age audio monitor, which only let us hear what our baby was doing, without actually seeing anything that was going on…How primitive, right?
Here’s what happened when a totally tired family of five talked about just how tired they all were.
Summer vacation’s over, school’s back in session and families everywhere are wishing they could squeeze just a few more minutes out of their snooze buttons each morning.
The Doctor and Dad household is no exception. With a full-time first grader, a part-time preschooler and a baby who’s decided to drop her second nap way sooner than we’d have liked, we’re as busy as ever – and most definitely sleepy.
That’s why we decided to talk about just how tired we all were during one of our famous, dinnertime family debates! Check out some of the other stuff we’ve debated in the past here and here. Then read below to find out what happened when we asked our tired family:
“What is the most TIRED you have been in your whole entire life?”
You are gliding effortlessly from aisle to aisle, instantly finding each and every item you need. Everything’s on sale, your list is overflowing with deeply satisfying checkmarks, and your shopping cart wheels are completely squeak-free.
When you become a parent, you also become a teacher. Some things we teach our children are useful – letters, numbers, how to say “Mama” and “Dada,” and the fact that diving headfirst down the stairs causes serious “owies.” Other things aren’t quite so important. Why exactly do we think our kids need to know the sound every single farm animal makes anyway?
But there’s one thing we parents should teach our kids about that we rarely do: the brain.
As parents, we always love to see our kids take an interest in reading and writing – since building those skills now can lead to greater success in school, work and overall happiness throughout their lives.
Each Kid Joke Korner features a real joke set-up that one of our children made up, along with our family’s guesses as to what the punch line might be. See if you can figure out how each joke really ends – or share your own punch line ideas in the comments!
