my mom and grandmother are visiting (no they aren’t the monsters i’m speaking of) and because i had to work and the kids had school they found themselves on their own yesterday. my mom took a little time and perused through “culture shock: thailand”, the book that i just got in the mail. she found one part very interesting…
“some of the most horrible children in thailand belong to expat families living in the country on a temporary or permanent basis.
the expat child is likely to be bigger, stronger, better nourished and psychologically much more prepared to compete, defend and win than are the thai children he is playing with.”
this does strike me as funny, mainly because one of my children might fit very well into that description. but i really don’t want my kids to be seen that way.
my mom and grandmother also filled some of their time by cleaning – they even cleaned out the fridge! i don’t remember when i did that last. today we’re going to try to do some fun stuff.
