On Expectations of Prospective Grandeur - Part 1

So have you heard of this television program SuperNanny?

It's about a nanny who is super.


I was thinking about this program earlier today when we were struggling with developing a discipline routine for our youngest daughter during mealtimes. The SuperNanny has clear guidelines for addressing these sorts of issues, and both my wife and I are super fans of the SuperNanny and super fans of addressing these sorts of issues. But we are challenged a bit in being consistent and successful at maintaining decorum and focus while we're eating.

But the good news for us, and the good news for everyone, according to the SuperNanny, is that whenever you finally get around to following her guidelines; whenever you actually implement her recommendations; whenever your commitment to the theory manifests itself in you actual behavior, your children's conduct will measurably improve.

So I figure, if that's inevitable if we just do the right thing as parents, what's the rush?

We'll get there eventually.

For now it's just too taxing ...

I have heard of that silly show, but never seen it. I can't dig dude.

And I certainly can't picture you watching that.

Shocking.

Mealtime around here is remarkably similar to mealtime for the chimps at the zoo. Lots of food being thrown around, farting, swinging from the ceiling tom-foolery and hijinx and what not. I'm lucky if I get to eat at all.

perhaps if you stopped throwing your food swinging from the ceiling and farting you might get to eat mr fog

Nip it in the bud while it's not a large problem. Next think you know, you'll ask her to finish dinner and she'll get up, slap you in the face, followed by the rebellious teen saying, "I'm goin' out!!"

I'm strangely aroused by the super nanny.
I'd like to watch her clean up maps of Polynesian Island chains.
