Another Reason Not To Have Kids ;) The Dreaded Gradeschool Christmas Program

by Jim Parish

It goes on at least seemingly for hours.  Class after class of little kids who seem to have been told singing is the same things as yelling.  You sit there patiently as other peoples children climb up on to the risers and "sing" their little hearts out.  For some reason it doesn't matter if you can sing or if you want to sing, in grade school you must sing!   Then finally your own adorable little cherub and his/her class makes their way up the risers and you watch as your kid doesn't sing so much as he/she mouth's the words to another Christmas classic.   You took a half day of PTO for this?  Merry Christmas!

Glad that's off my chest.  Now another reason not to have kids>>
