Listening Skills

| September 13, 2016 | 5 Comments

Kids have selective hearing. I don’t know how many times I’ve practically had a bullhorn in the kids’ faces and can’t get their attention… but boy, talk about bat-like hearing whenever I’m saying something that’s not as kid-friendly.

Next time I need their attention, I’ll just mutter a few swears. Or something about butts.

About the Author ()

I am a lifelong (award-winning!) cartoonist and mother of two delightful boys, aged 7 and 5. I like to view today's adventures in parenting as material for tomorrow's cartoon. Looking at family life through "cartoon-coloured glasses" helps me keep the all-important sense of humour required for raising kids... even for the events that don't seem so funny at the time.
