Lets Play Who's the Crazy Parent

As a daycare director I see a lot of crazy parenting. I mean really crazy parenting. But I as a parent and a former child I have seen and done my fair share of insane parenting too. So because I enjoyed our little game show so much yesterday I thought today we'd play:

Who's the Crazy Parent?

Yes Who's the Crazy Parent? The game show where you guess who is doing the crazy parenting. Winners will get a week of no one looking at them funny in the grocery store when you end up yelling at your child a little louder than you meant to. (prizes not guaranteed in all 50 states)

1. Who wandered around a child's bedroom with a bat at 3am threatening to knock the invisible raccoons into next week so their child would go back to sleep?
A. A Crazy Daycare Parent
B. My Parents
C. Me

Answer: B. My parents. What loving grandpa wouldn't beat a small furry invisible animal with a bat to win the love of a young child?

2.Who taught their child Morris code before she was three and had her tap hello to everyone every morning?
A. A Crazy Daycare Parent
B. My Parents
C. Me

Answer: A. Yup its those Crazy Daycare Parents. Who knows when a young child may find themselves in desperate need of a method of communication that died out over 50 years ago.

3.Who gave their child over 10 grape ice pops in less than 24 hours and was surprised by the ensuing sugar rush and destruction that followed?
A. A Crazy Daycare Parent
B. My Parents
C. Me

Answer: C. Yup its me don't judge he was sick!

4.Who got sick of telling their child to eat their eggs every morning so they made a tape recording that said "eat, eat, chew, chew" so they would no longer have to?
A. A Crazy Daycare Parent
B. My Parents
C. Me

Answer: B. My parents and its taken me over 30 years to recover from the memories of that tape. Mean mean parents boo hiss. Sorry I judged.

5. Who let their child dress up like a giant chicken and walk through the streets of Manhattan to get a bucket of KFC for dinner (Kentucky Fried Chicken for you foreigners)?
A. A Crazy Daycare Parent
B. My Parents
C. Me

Answer: C. Me. OK it was Halloween. OK it wasn't. But is was funny. You're judging aren't you?

Who walked an entire block with an empty stroller before realizing her child was not in it?
A. A Crazy Daycare Parent
B. My Parents
C. Me

Answer: A Yes its those Crazy Daycare Parents again. Don't judge them OK well maybe in this case you can judge them a little. Really it takes a whole block to figure that out?

Mama Zen said...

Kmommy said...

LOL! I too would dress up as a chicken for free KFC!!! mmmm made me hungry. haven't had kfc in forever. used to get it once a week or two back in the northwoods, mainly because it was one of the 2 fast food restaurants in the closest town.

I love your quiz. Hilarious.

I wonder if scaling a chain link fence with my 3 year old makes me a crazy parent...(long story)

I might think of something witty to say here in a minute after I'm done LAUGHING MY ASS OFF!!

Happy Campers said...

Hysterical! My mother's youngest sister who was about 16 at the time once took me in my stroller down to the 5 & 10 to meet her boyfriend. She came back to my mother's house and a few minutes went by before my mother said " Where's the baby? Yup, she left me parked outside the 5 & 10! I was fast asleep and nobody stole me! Of course, that was 53 years ago when people didn't worry so much about stuff like that!

Susan said...

I would dress up as a chicken, just for the fun of it. I used to do the "Funky Chicken" at our school dances. Funny though, no one would dance with me... Wonder why?

Vered said...

I confess: I am crazy too.


Courtney said...

This is too funny. The last question is a little disturbing and to think they admitted that.? Sorry I judged a little.

forgetfulone said...

I'm not judging! Even the parents who didn't realize their kid wasn't in the stroller. Me, judge? Nope! This was a very funny post.

Andrea said...

haha...those are TOO funny! Thanks for the laughs...seriously though...one block of walking without realizing that you have no child in your stroller?! haha. ;)

Aimee said...
