It Takes a Village

A few months ago, with summer quickly approaching, I was researching summer camps for my daughter, Devin. I can't be having my kids around all summer long. As Hilary Clinton said, "It takes a village to raise a child". I really take that to heart and as a result there are many villagers who care for my kids. 

I go to the obvious place to get information, my bible, People Magazine. Of course I immediately find the perfect place, especially for this soccer mom. 

All I had to read was that little Maddox Jolie-Pitt goes to The David Beckham Soccer Academy which is not far from my house. DONE DEAL! That's all I need to know. 

Maddox and Devin will be best friends, then start dating, then get married and have beautiful little multi-racial children. That means that my grandkids will raise my social status exponentially! Everyone knows that multi-racial children are a must-have. Just ask Madonna or Meg Ryan. (I was going to say that multi-racial kids where the new black, but I thought that might come off wrong.)

Wait a minute! How did I get from summer camps for a seven year old, to grandkids? Back on topic, I decided not to enroll Devin in that soccer camp because the next People Magazine informed me that the Jolie-Pitt clan was in France this summer. Maybe next year for the whole David Beckham thing. Besides, I hear that Gwen Stefani's son is going to chess camp this summer. Devin will learn to love it!

But Devin might meet one of Snoop Dogg's kids at David Beckham's camp and learn how to roll a fatty. That is info that everyone needs to know. Along with "Puff, Puff, Give"! ;-p

@angelika-I didn't even think about that! I like Snoop Dogg too because he is a USC football fan!

Selling your kids, haha, I love it. (I was going to say whoring off your kids but that might have come off wrong) Multi-racial kids are adorable arent they.

multi-racial kids where the new black---I almost peed myself I was laughing so hard.

and too bad about the Pitts leaving for france. I was going to say, Devin could have had her choice btw Maddox OR Pax. Lucky girl. Awh, maybe next summer.

I was going to laugh out loud about the multi-racial kids being the new black, but I thought THAT might come off wrong.

It is completely worth our time and money to buy and read People. Look at all the great information we can learn that will help even our future generations! Much more productive, I think, than a silly news or parenting mag. In the past, I would blame the kids for putting it into my cart, or shove other groceries on top it so no one would see, but NO MORE!

momjeansblogger said...

@bee-I hope you've recovered

@drowsey-It was about kids, but I think most people just enjoyed the hunk pic!

@stephanie-Yes, be proud! Let everyone at the check out stand see you!!
