Nice Parenting

I’ve heard it said that raising a dog is good practice for raising children….

The other evening Laura and I were trying to watch a movie. Indie was bouncing all over the living room.

Laura: Indie, why don’t you lay on your bed and take it easy.

Me: She’s been alone all day and just wants to play.

Me: Indie, go ahead and play. Do what you want.

Laura: (with a smile and a sarcastic glance) Nice parenting.

Me: Thanks. You’re right. I think Indie will agree that that was a great example of nice parenting!
