I Am Raising A Productive Member of Society.



These are the things that are important:


That she learn her ABC's.

That she knows that to "honor your father and mother" will bring a long and happy life that may or may not include Raisinets as rewards and/or bribery.

That she sees the episode of The Love Boat with the Dallas Cowboy Cheerleaders.

That she is able to distinguish the difference between the Paris that is expensive and the Paris that is cheap. (I'll let you determine which is which.)

And that she understands that before any good mascara - cheap or otherwise - can go on your eyes, your eyelashes must be curled. This is a must. She's gonna be a Texas girl, for goodness sake.

Oh, and that she understands in her deepest heart that batting those eyelashes will get you nowhere in that Texas heat without a little of this.



Praise the Lord and pass the ammunition.

I love this post....and it makes me even more thankful that I have all boys. None of those eyelash curlers in my home, lol

I am so proud of your mothering skills. I don't curl my lashes or use hairspray, so my eventual daughter won't learn any of this. I may have to send her to you!

Just be prepared, Melissa, to endure constant battles over disappearing make up and hairspray that will eventually be found in totally random, insensible areas of her bedroom. But she didn't put any of it there herself. Nosiree!
