parenting greeting cards you will never see....
So, after 4 hours of shopping for dresses and shorts for my incredibly sensitive little girl, I sorta wanted some compassion. I mean, it was bloody hell. To be honest, I wanted some sort of recognition when I was done on how seriously awful shopping with a 4.5 year old with special needs is! After 4 meltdowns, 4 stores, countless "no, I'm sorry we can't buy that today"s, a heartbreak over a stuffed bunny that I wouldn't buy her, several small freak outs about trying on clothes in the change room (she thought someone might see her changing) and tags/threads/pockets/appliques in places that drive her mental, and a small panic attack over a cricket loose on the floor of the pet store, I deserve a freakin' medal!
However, I realize that medals are a bit pricey, and rather cumbersome and hard to come by, so I'd settle for just a nice card, or even an e-card, stating how much I am appreciated for the work I do...Unfortunately, on hunting for them, I find there aren't really many satisfactory sentiments out there to show appreciation for the work parents do. So, I'm compiling a few here today. Tell me what you think!
or maybe one of these?
and maybe one day, we'll even be featured in the paper:
Oh well, I guess I'll just settle with a grubby-handed hug and an "I love you" from a smiley love-eyed little girl...On second thought, that's the best reward ever, isn't it?
If you have any cute/funny/sarcastic parenting-related e-cards I'd love to see them! Message them to me on Facebook, and I may post them there, or even here!
