This topic came to my mind when I was discussing childhood memories with my best friend. Tell me some of the experiences or memories your child will miss out on because you just don't do those things for whatever reason.
My son won't have the memory of the special dish his mom makes because I suck major ass at cooking and live by the principle of "if it takes more than 15 minutes to make, leaves more than one dirty bowl and/or is more complicated than mixing a couple ingredients together, chances are I can find something easier that will satisfy my hunger all the same, therefore it's just not worth the effort".
Another thing that is missing from his memory book is me teaching him to swim. I'm quite sure I knew how to swim once upon a lifetime, but that was many years and an almost-drowning ago. Now just don't go into water that's deeper than my knees, so he learned to swim in swimming school.
Tell me yours!
