We’ve been off the grid during this early period of baby-dom. Carting a big 2-year old everywhere along with a newborn is a task for 2 people – we’ll figure out how to do it solely one day, but how much do you want to bet me that “one day” will coincide with “day that baby decides he can walk, and now we have two walking babies” and everything we learned about how to deal with two babies flies out the window now that both babies are mobile???
Ahh babies. And I thought a regular job was hard!
Speaking of regular jobs…my husband discovered the Rich Kids of Instagram tumblr…I think it’s safe to say that these kids will never know the feeling of unemployment or not being able to pay bills! I don’t even know how to comment on these kids…they are doing nothing except living their lives the way they were taught, yet the excess to which they are accustomed to is, well, excessive.
I’ve drank Dom Perignon, but not with the reckless abandon these kids are swilling it. I’ve been on private yachts – wait, does stepping onto the private yacht of my previous employer count? Can’t say I’ve ever private jetted off on a vacation before (though I would love to, of course), nor can I say that my hair has ever been as blond as any of those girls.
Also, are there any rich kids of instagram that are not caucasian?
I can’t fault these kids for living their lives “normally”, because to them that is normal. I can’t fault them for acting like spoiled brats, because you see spoiled brats at every school in every city…you see the “mean girls” who toss their hair as they kick other kids off the playground, you see them treat other kids like they are beneath them. It’s a fact of growing up – there are popular kids, and there are unpopular ones. Rich Kids of Instagram just highlight the popular kids who happen to be extremely wealthy.
So do I think it’s right that these kids can act like that, can jet off to St. Tropez at a moments notice, can fly their helicopters when they are too hungover to drive…do I think it’s ok that they think they are better than the rest of the world? Of course not. But I can’t blame them. That’s what they were taught to do.
How do you unteach the horrible teachings of parents?
