A peanut butter & reality sandwich

I was making a PB & J sandwich for Girlie the other day when she requested that I cut the crusts off.

"Nope. You can just eat around them." I replied.

You see, my whole parenting philosophy is based around the crust on a sandwich. Not cutting the crusts is my way of saying life is tough, there are always parts you don't want to deal with, so you'd bettter get used to it now. Eventually, it won't matter anymore, and you might even find yourself liking the rough edges.

I like to think that by not cutting off the crusts I am teaching my kids a valuable life lesson.

Or maybe I am just a meanie.
