Disregard This Post

Ben Franklin once wrote: " this world nothing can be said to be certain, except death and taxes."  I'm not so sure I agree.  As a Christian, the death thing is fairly uncertain depending on how one sees "death," and taxes depends quite a bit on income and allowances and whatnot.  

There is only one thing regarding parenting I feel absolutely certain of, and it is this:

The things I was pretty sure were true yesterday are naive and/or idiotic today, and the things that I'm pretty sure are true today will seem naive and/or idiotic tomorrow.

In other words, if I ever say anything that sounds like parenting advice, ignore it.  I pretty much ignore all advice by anyone who has less than 3 kids or whose kids are younger than 5.  I mean, how much can we possibly know, right? 

This post is starting to sound a lot like parenting advice.  Ignore it.
