You know you're a parent if:

8. You have ever eaten a meal consisting of a single chicken nugget, three goldfish crackers and half a grape.

I would never settle for less than 4 chicken nuggets. With plum sauce.

9. you know you're a parent when your entire dinner consists of your offspring's leftovers.

10. You know you're a parent when you eat Kraft dinner (it's a Canadian macaroni cheese thing), with overcooked noodles and runny cheese sauce because your child cooked it and you just can't let yourself scream, "Bleurgh! This is horrid!" but instead must choke down every biteful, whilst smiling and declaring it delicious so as not to scar them for life. Which, if you're doing your job right, you've already taken care of by the time they can reach the stove.

Hm, some deep-rooted issues there from Ms Wrath. I suspect that childhood KD trauma is to blame.

I couldn't leave this wv all by itself:

'sxppy'.

Use your imagination.

Re #10 - Not childhood KD trauma but rather a mother who could make KD taste like real food, thus rendering the clumsy attempts by my children to prepare it all the more heinous. But I still love them, I really do.
