This may well be my shortest post ever, but a post of any length should count toward the goal of writing something for National Blog Posting Month, so let's go with that.
I'm almost positive that I've never shared this story here before, but if I have, please forgive me because I suffer from a severe case of CRS.
Last year, my then seven-year old son told all the kids on his school bus that his Russian father had killed a man when he was a boxer. And while it is true that my husband was an amateur boxer as a young man, and it it true that he broke one guy's nose (and also had his own nose broken), he never killed anyone. Afterwards, I was put in the awkward predicament of trying to decide whether I should send a note to his teacher or something. It's really hard to send an email that says, "By the way, my husband never killed anyone, despite whatever rumors might be swirling around". How to handle shit like this is never covered in any parenting books.
I could probably write my own book giving example of things that aren't covered in most standard advice books. I'll try to share other stories here as I think of them (hence the title name of "Part One"). In advance, you're welcome!
I'm the worst kind of asshole-- I think I'm funny.
