Recently, I have been asked what the criteria is for the infamous Evil Genius Parent Award.
To be honest, it’s purely subjective – and so it should be. It’s not like I’m going to be offering a democracy when I take over the world.
But I do like to help you out. Mainly because by helping you, I increase my own entertainment – at your expense.
So what do I look for? Mainly three (3) things:
* Make me laugh
* Show that it wasn’t an accident – you DID actually think about how to outsmart your spawnlings, even if only by a fairy-tip-toe
* Make it known within the week
Yep. That’s it. I told you – it’s subjective.
This week’s recipient satisfies all of that: Suburban Snapshots. And I like the fact that her blog isn’t your stock-standard, boring, blogs that I see a lot of. *sigh* She’s a photographer who is trying to muddle through the strange world of parenting, while bluffing it all with her kid. And if this is how she prepares for her Summer Holidays, I look forward to reading more.
Watching Jaws with Anna because this summer I just want to relax on the beach with a book for a change.
See, it’s not so much about educating your children – it’s the context of their education that shows your greatest EG Parent potential.
