But Mom...Wednesday, February 04, 2009
“BUT Mom,” - the two words that usually precede my crumbcatcher’s arguments.
As a teen, I tried to use those words - but growing up in a strict Filipino household,
“BUT” alone is not acceptable!
From the youngest to the oldest --- you’ll hear these words in your kid’s negotiation tactics.
“BUT Mom, none of my friends have to go home at 10pm!”
“BUT Mom, all of my friends watch Friends”
“BUT Mom, all of my friends watch Family Guy"
“BUT Mom, none of my friends have to do any chores!”
And like our moms did when we were younger, we respond to our kids:
“Sorry kiddo, but your friends are NOT my kids!”
