Wins and Losses

The other night at the dinner table, one kid was humming Bohemian Rhapsody, another was singing American Idiot by Green Day, and the third was humming 16 Going On 17 from The Sound of Music.

I considered that a parenting win.

Then yesterday, the kids asked to play outside in the snow because it was so warm. I went to check on them about a half hour later and found all three with their coats off, bent over, with their heads stuck right under the snow like ostriches.

You win some, you lose some.

    I agree #1 is a win – diversity in appreciation of the arts is very admirable.

    Without having any idea what was going on in #2, I don’t see how that is a loss? Kids doing goofy stuff for no apparent reason is something to marvel at – it’s how they learn, and how they bring new ideas into the world. You should be celebrating that even more!
