Dad Promises Her A Puppy If She Does THIS! He’s Got A Lot Of Explaining To Do To His Wife When He Gets Home…Yikes!
When I first had children, my mother’s words of advice poured out like a fountain. It was as if she had been holding back everything she had learned from raising me and let it out all at once, hoping it would all somehow stick and I would be “super mom.” After watching this video, I now understand one of those bits of advice. She said, “I know that you love this baby more than anything in the world right now, but you be careful what you promise them. Don’t promise to buy them a toy or a bike or anything “if” they do something. If they end up doing it, you have to keep your word.” I had shrugged it off, not really understanding exactly what she meant…until now.
This unsuspecting dad made an off-hand promise (and by the sound of it, he hadn’t talked to mom about it yet! Yikes!) that if either of the girls got a hole-in-one, they could get a puppy. What were the chances they would get a hole-in-one? They were 11 and 13. There’s not way they could actually land- oh, look, they landed a hole-in-one. Look who’s stuck buying a puppy and telling mom? That guy.
Be careful what you promise your kids. It might actually come true.
