Bing Mean

Our girls, like most kids, want to push things to the limit. A few nights ago, Megan did this very thing, and Henry had to put his foot down. This naturally makes him a Meanie in Meg's eyes.

At some point between bedtime and morning, Meg had written this note and taped it onto the light switch for Henry to see:

That's right. It says, 'Dad is "bing" to mean!' Have you ever seen such a hurtful note?

It reminds me of my own childhood. I believe I was about Meg's age, and my parents were "bing" mean to me too. To teach them a lesson, I did what any 7 year old Christian girl would do ... draw a picture of them in the LAKE OF FIRE, and hang it on my bedroom door. I sincerely thought that would put them in their place (so to speak). Now that I'm a parent, I realize that all I did was give them a good laugh!

Even though I whine from time to time (okay, all the time), let the record show that I love "bing" a parent.
