Funny... True, but funny...

I heard the funniest thing yesterday... The true measure of a great parent is making sure your little one has it better than you do... Not necessarily better than you did, but do.

This really made a lot of sense to me. I mean, when we were younger and single, we had it pretty well. Just a few monthly bills, low rent apartments and nice cars. Once that baby comes along, priorities change quickly.

It's okay to wear something less than perfect to work. A t-shirt with a stain doesn't become a tag instantly. And let us not forget that we struggle to buy ourselves the little things but have no problem dropping a $20 on another stuffy for the kiddo.

Don't get me wrong, this is a good thing. It's just how funny we become when our kids get involved. We forget about ourselves completely and only worry if our kids have the right stuff, or enough stuff would probably be the better way to put it.

It really isn't about spoiling the little guys and gals, it's just about making sure they have it better than we do.
