Sticky Parenting Situation of the Month

by Marinka on July 16, 2010

So, hypothetically speaking, if your son’s 9  year old camp friend gifts him a drawing that he made, lovingly titled “WORLD WAR 22” and it depicts armies and buildings with corpses falling out of them, do you schedule playdates at the artist’s house, your own house or the local precinct?

Just wondering.

Not sure of the proper venue, but you definitely put it on YouTube.

Not just any precinct, of course. . . the 22nd precinct!!!

Totally- maybe you can get a group rate.

None of the above–at the shrink’s office.

Boys are so sort of happily violent. My 3 yo is singing a song as I type about “that train track dumb!” and dismanteling it quite roughly. I don’t know…

Also, my work has blocked your blog and ruined my life. I can read The Bloggess but not Marinka, now what the hell kind of sense does that make?

At your house, of course. He is obviously a John Connor. And only he can protect you when the Militia is roaming the post-apolocalyptic burned-out streets. Keep him close and you will survive 😉

Send your kid to a different camp. One where they’re only allowed to draw butterflies.

It’s nice to know, though, that people are still around after World Wars 3-21.

Hey, no naked women in his drawing? There’s no problem.

Ha! Just come over to my house for a mommy/son playdate– my kid probably drew it.

Get him to do your Christmas card.

You mean “gives,” not “gifts,” right? Why must the English language keep changing?!

Wait: There’s something wrong with that scenario? Hypothetically speaking, of course..
