Today, my daughter, who was born in late 2000, mentioned how amazing it is that she'll be alive during the year 3000. I asked her exactly how old she thinks she'll be by then. She said, "Thirty, duh." I've screwed up as a parent, so very badly. FML

  • It's not always parenting that screws kids up. Kids just have a different logic than adults. If you explained it to her, then you're not a bad parent. Letting her continue to believe something that's false would make you a bad parent.
