By activity kits do you mean like 'a coloring book and crayons' or 'a spoon a lighter a syringe and 10 grams of heroin'?

If it's the former, it's fine.

If it's the latter, that isn't going to work. Your child does not yet have the fine motor skills to fill the syringe or inject heroin into her body, she lacks the strength to tap a correct vein, and she may miss a she will forget to remove the rubber tubing around her arm.

May I suggest Little Miss Playtime's Coke Mirror and Razor Kit?

Well ou know what I got for Christmas this year? It was a banner f***in' year at the old Bender family. I got a carton of cigarettes. The old man grabbed me and said "Hey. Smoke up Johnny.

So maybe the kid should take up smoking?

Buy her some superglue. I'm betting within 10 minutes she won't come bother you at all.

Munden: Diogenes: Put her lazy ass to work.

csb; I stopped at a veggie/flower stand/plot on my way back through Amish country in PA and it was stationed by 3 Amish kids.  The one that couldn't have been older than 3.5 and insisted on carrying a bag full of veggies back to our vehicle.  Pretty adorable. The eldest kid was maybe 14 and spoke in a broken english with us, and 'Dutch' with their siblings.  Kids needed an orthodontist.  No point to the story as Amish kids and culture aren't an apples-to-apples comparison to how we raise kids.


Well, their entire perspective on life is way different.  That's for sure.

I was thinking of the old Living Color Jamaican family ("Hey Mon!") skits.

"ONE JOB?!"
