Vignettes from The Annals of Bad Parenting

Upon waking The Boy this morning, I was greeted by an unnaturally spiky cockscomb of Boy hair. This was no mere bed-head; no, this spoke of deeper horrors…

I had no idea when this child last bathed.

    When I was little, I used to shower once a week. Unfortunately, when I hit puberty, it took me a while to realize that once a week just wouldn’t cut it.

    My son is awful about this. Once a week? I’d be delighted if he would shower once a week. “You don’t remind me!” he’s always saying. But he brushes his teeth regularly and we don’t have to remind him of that. Fortunately, aside from his feet, he’s not a very smelly kid.

    I usually make the boy take a bath when his head smells like dirt.
