How to be the perfect parent in Canada
First day at school after summer break. I even thought a hurricane had hit the house.
“Where are my socks? My shoes are dirty. I have gymn first period. I am in grade 11 so all has to be perfect. What are you packing for me for lunch and snack? I am so nervouse. I do not think I should drive. Who has my head phones?
OMG…this so totally sucks. My shoes. I should not wear heels. I have gymn..does anyone even listen to me? Non, skip coffee, I will take tea. Load it up with more sugar”.
Phew! She then drove to school and there was a bowl of fruitloop cereal with milk in the bathroom. A cup of orange juice beside her make up table and then milk by the door.
But we took all the school things though. MaryAnne skipped today. I think she knew that there would be a storm running in the house.
Parenting is actually not as easy as I used to think. Small kids, small problems. Big kids, big problems.
