Let Me Get This Straight
Let Me Get This Straight. This is a convo that I had, the other day, with my 13-year-old son.
Me: D, did you take the dogs out?
Me: Did you feed and water the dogs and cats?
**it was after lunch at this point….chores are usually done by 9 am**
Me: Can you name me each of the major wars from as far back as you can remember, in order?
D: Rattles them off PERFECTLY beginning in the year 1754 with the French and Indian War.
Me: Can you tell me who was involved in each of these wars?
D: Rattles the names off PERFECTLY.
Me: How is it you can remember these details, but you cannot remember the same chores you have had for 7 years?
D: I like wars. I do not like chores.
Touche’ little fella. Touche’.
Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder is 100% preventable. Please, if you are within child-bearing years, do not drink. I mean, not even a little bit. Your life will not change, so to speak. Yet, it changes the life of your child forever. Fetal alcohol syndrome is a condition in a child that results from alcohol exposure during the mother’s pregnancy. Fetal alcohol syndrome causes brain damage and growth problems. The problems caused by fetal alcohol syndrome vary from child to child, but defects caused by fetal alcohol syndrome are not reversible. There is no amount of alcohol that’s known to be safe to consume during pregnancy. If you drink during pregnancy, you place your baby at risk of fetal alcohol syndrome.
