Is Our Children Learning?

Apparently accourding to a Gallup Poll some 68% of Americans believe in the "Devil"!
Pat Robertson went so far as to explain Haiti's predicament as a direct result of some clandestine meeting The Devil and Haiti's Governors had one night? (the Devil surely makes such pacts at night)
This means two thirds of the people my children interact with every day believe in an evil mythological creature that aims to tempt them with woeful pacts, appealing to their proclivities towards easy money, revenge and grandeur.
If only Gallup had included questions regarding belief of the Tooth Fairy and Santa.
Perfect Parent suspects that Gallup polled a group of Americans aged four to seven.

Purity Mom

"I need to lose a few pounds of holiday excess, Anyone else? I like to do fasts and detoxes a couple of times during the year, the most hardcore one being the Master Cleanse I did last spring. It was not what you would characterize as pretty. Or easy. It did work, however.
I feel pure and happy and much lighter (I dropped the extra pounds that I had gained during a majorly fun and delicious "relax and enjoy life phase" about a month ago."
Gwyneth Paltrow

Perfect Parent does not know where to begin. What exactly is Gwynnie cleansing? Does she swing wildly between raw diet juicing nervous and upset life phases to crack smoking, chicken fried steak eating relax and enjoy life phases?

Sounds like Mommy is either indisposed or slurring her words?

Balance is an overused word but Gwynnie....? Pull those neurosies towards the center a little bit and you can mark your life phases with actual accomplishments. If purity is your concern invest in those neat dust mite mattress and pillow covers and call it "close enough".
