Parent's would understand

Confession....I love to read FoxNews.  Okay, you're probably thinking hmmm how is that a bad thing?  Well really I like to read the entertainment part.  I figure if I get caught by my Tim reading the trash news part I can just tell him I am reading FoxNews and it makes me look super smart and up on current events.

The other day I ran across this link and it took me to the Huffington Post..not something I normally read but I thought this was hilarious and I wanted to share it with you.  You know all those forms we fill out for our kids such as doctors forms, daycare forms, and school forms, etc...and sometimes those forms have the craziest questions on it such as I remember when I was working and Hannah was a new baby and she was in daycare and on the form a questions asked "what does your child like to do in his/her free time."  Well given that she was only 8 weeks old and had colic my answer was crying.  I loved that this father when faced with the same challenge come up with something witty and imaginative.  I will admit when I filled out that form for Hannah I was in my early 20's and thought parenting had to be done very seriously...as you know by reading this blog I threw that out the window!!

I hope you laugh as hard as I did. I have copied and pasted this story from the Huffington Post.  You can find the original post by following this link or just read below:

As soon as they're old enough to put pen to paper -- or finger to iPad -- kids are perfectly capable of writing hilarious messages on any number of subjects (you'll find a selection of our all-time favorites below).
But for an 11-month-old, a personality survey is a pretty tall order. So when one dad was faced with the task of filling in a questionnaire sent home by his daughter's daycare, he did something any parent with a wicked sense of humor will appreciate: he was totally honest (well, mostly -- that PhD's a lofty goal for an under-1). And his answers were funny enough to please even the daycareemployees in the online audience.
"When daycare, completely seriously, asks my friend to answer stupid questions on behalf of his 11 month old daughter, it is inevitable that stupid answers is what they'll receive," the friend who posted the finished product to Reddit wrote -- also pointing out that "sleep depravation," while a spelling mistake, might actually not be quite so far from the truth.
Here's the form in all its glory:
