Good parenting: going to the store because you're out of milk and bread.
Great parenting: being out of milk and bread for over a day, and only going to the store when you realize you're also out of ice cream.
Good parenting: Dressing your kids in the morning.
Great parenting: Dressing your kids in shorts and t-shirts when it's only 53 degrees out. Then taking them to the grocery store before realizing it's freezing so they cling to your legs saying "I'm SOOOOOO cold, Mommy!"
Good parenting: Take the kids to visit the grandparents.
Great parenting: Take the kids to visit the grandparents because you're absolutely sick of cleaning up your own house and keeping it "open house ready".
Good parenting: Give boo-boo kisses
Great parenting: Having to give two consecutive kisses to two different children, both of whom ended up with a black eye. Special great parenting bonus: being secretly glad each child was responsible for his own black eye, so no one had to be punished.
Good parenting: Expose children to a variety of different music.
Great parenting: Wonder what your children are talking about when they want you to sing the rose song, until you finally realize they're talking about Poison's Every Rose Has Its Thorn. Special great parenting bonus: Have child ask later that same day what Red Hot Chili Pepper's Suck My Kiss is about.
