1. Treats at children's sports games
And heaven knows it's not because I don't like treats (have you read my blog bio?). I love treats, and believe they make the world a happier place. The problem is, Julian loves treats too. And George, and Hazel. So when Parley gets his Capri Sun and package of little doughnuts or granola bar, I have to hear crying and whining the whole way home. It has become such an expectation for the kids that when a parent forgets to bring the treat, the crying seems worse than if the family pet died. The sport is the least important thing to the kids. I'm pretty sure I pay the $40 playing fee just for the Capri Sun and Fruit Snack at the end.
2. and while we're on sports, Sports Team Pictures
Can you tell I just got home from Parley's basketball game? I know it must be a big money maker for someone with a decent camera, but team pictures? I can't get the kids on Parley's team to pass the ball to him, so I don't really care if he has a photo with them. And If I did, I'd bring a camera to take it. Today we marched from the gym to the grass outside and waited for our team's turn (giant line) for them to step on the risers for a shot. In my brain I yelled, "boo."
3. Political Posts on Facebook
So you're political. You can't wait to vote. You think your candidate is the handsomest. He also dominated at the debate. He is definitely the one to change the world. You'll likely make millions during his years in office. He'd for sure give a more amazing back rub than that other guy. Really really amazing. Likely with special oils and candles. You'd probably look amazing getting that back rub too. You must post about it on Facebook. But wait! Don't! Just show us your dinner and kids instead!
Jerks are the worst.
5. The jayniemoon banner
Isn't that like 5 years old? And I swear she still has the spring looking banner up. What's the deal with that? Doesn't her husband design stuff sometimes? Like for work? Lame.
Remember this pact? Still keeping strong here. You?
