A year ago, Michelle finally forced me to make good on the threat I'd been making since The Boy's birth. We started this blog.
We'd been talking about the idea for weeks, and I threw out the name, Not Raising Brats, as a joke. More wishful thinking and desperate hoping than anything else. It stuck, though there are days when one or both of us is fairly certain the name is false advertising at best and a blatant lie at worst.
In honor of our anniversary, here are some alternate names for this little bit of the Interwebs:
-- Not Raising Juvenile Delinquents
-- Not Losing Our Minds
-- Trying to Keep Everyone Alive
-- Keeping Our Expectations Low
-- Lying to Ourselves About Raising Brats
-- Raising Imps
-- Going for Good Enough
Going for Good Enough, Michelle's brainchild, is my favorite on the list. I think it sums up nicely the parenting reality.
