Kids First

In the car the other day, little kid announced, "Kids should always go first."

I had no idea what he was talking about (life rafts? exiting elevators?) so I agreed.

"If you know that why don't yous do it?"

"Know what?"

"That Jesus says the childrens always come first."


"That's how come yous gots to start listening to me and stop arguing wif me all da time. Kids come first! Kids know best!"

"I don't think that's what Jesus meant."

"How would you know? You don't even goes to church! That's what my teatsers said, that Jesus said children come first and that YOU should listen to ME 'bout what I wants to do."

"Well, Jesus and I will have to agree to disagree. I had kids so I could be the boss."

"I'm tellin' my pastor on you."

The fifth commandment is "Honor your father and your mother, that your days may be long upon the land which the Lord your God is giving you."

Edit that down to "Honor your father and mother" and fire it back at Little Kid.

Also, there's a Shel Silverstein poem "Ladies First" on Marlo Thomas' album "Free to Be You and Me" that has a great ending. Here's a You Tube clip with some animation.
