Universal Mommy Truth

Universal Mommy Truth:

If you go to the park with the Razor, it will not be used. If you take the time and effort to pack it up and carry it from the car, it will assure that the Razor will be ignored for other park activites.

If, however, you leave the Razor at home, you will discover that every other child at the park has their Razor with them that day. It will be the only thing your child can think to do. They will gaze with envy and longing at the children whose mothers' brought the Razor. They will talk endlessly about their love of the Razor and misery over leaving it at home.

And next time, you will bring it, and it will bruise you in the shin as you try to walk with it from the car, and they will have no interest. Ad infinitum.


  1. This could not be more true. (especially the bruising the shins part!)

  2. We went on a walk the other day and my son's wouldn't fold up and I ended up with it hanging half way out of the stroller basket and trying to keep it from dragging the ground all the way home....

    Good times!

  3. It's almost like when your car stops making that horrible noise as soon as you get to the mechanic- you can never win!

  4. OH.my I laughed at this one..IT IS SO TRUE!

    Weeks ago, I won a teapot set...I still have not received it...I think it was from someone else you featured.Just checking :)!

  5. This is ALWAYS how it works at our house, too.
