My kids have discovered a new game called “Dumb Ways to Die.”
At first I was aghast at how morbid a game it is, then I realized it is a good way to teach kids about common sense.
We then spent hours discussing dumb ways to die, and I introduced them to Darwin Awards, which delighted them.
Somehow it transitioned into how kids like to mock Aqua’s one-time 90’s wonder hit “Barbie Girl.” In shock, I asked my kids incredulously “People your age know this song??” I mean, out of all the songs released in the 1990’s this is the one they know? Oh, fuck me. I’m failing as a parent, apparently.
So, I showed them the video and then tried to explain what satire is. I failed. Oh well.
However it was all worth it because we came across this video and we were all in stitches, laughing:
I was supposed to be blogging, but end up spending 3 hours “wasting” time with my kids. So worth it.
Phew, I made my deadline of posting today by an hour, EST!
