Like, Jackson didn't get an A because his teacher doesn't like him or Cassie didn't make the cheerleading squad because the other parents are a bunch of suck-ups.
Because then, it's somebody else's fault. It's not us. No way. We're awesome.
Today I was reminded of one of my favorite excuses for being lazy parent: I am building up their immune system.
"Drew is digging around in the trash!" Gross but builds the immune system.
"Mama, can I eat this cookie that I dropped on the floor?" Three second rule. Builds the immune system.
"Do I need to bring hand sanitizer and wet wipes?" Nah. Bad for the immune system.
"What about public schools and daycares?" Great for the immune system.
"Do you want to go to Monkey Joe's on a rainy, Sunday afternoon?" We will make the immune system superhuman.
