overheard at the bus stop

Every once in a while, I overhear another parent saying goodbye to their child, as I drop mine off.

Yesterday, I heard someone say a thing that I have literally never, ever considered saying to my children:

“Don’t give in to Satan.”

I’m thinking it might be new parenting theory that I should adopt.

    I couldn’t bring myself to hit submit on the first comment that popped into my mind, but wow, just wow.

    Ha Ha HA!

    And you thought the schools were getting worse because of funding issues and standardized tests.

    In 10 years that’s going to be the wildest teen on the block!

    But then, I often refer to my 2 darlings as the “hellspawn” 😀

    Yeah, I call mine the Demon Spawn, though in a very loving way, of course.

    I’ve never thought to say that either. My kids’ school isn’t very good, but I really don’t think Satan hangs out there. Well of course not, if he’s at your kids’ school.

    Way to put pressure on the kid, huh? Yikes!

    This post gave me such a belly laugh – tears sreaming out of my eyes. The comments were great too. Sadly, I have heard that before. When I was at crazy church and my poor little kids went to their private school. Oh, God – I hope I didn’t say it myself! We did escape though: )

    I’d have a Devil of a time saying that to anyone.

    That reminds me of the line Jamie Lee Curtis says to Lindsay Lohan whenever she drops her off at school in Freaky Friday: “Make good choices!”

    I tried that, but only got eye-rolling back. I’ll have to try the Satan line.
