Today for my next Crappy Collaboration* post I bring you Susan from Divine Secrets of a Domestic Diva.
My first introduction to Susan was this hilarious dancing video. She had me at roller skates. I will forever picture her in my head wearing that pink unitard. I love it so much, it is her official “crappy” uniform when she hangs out over here.
*Crappy Collaborations are my way to share some of my favorite, funny parenting writers. They wrote the words, I drew the pictures.
Here is Susan’s post, with my crappy pictures…
(Insulting) Compliments From Kids, by Susan McLean

Kids generally mean well, but sometimes their compliments leave a little to be desired. Sure, they’re trying to say something nice, but there’s something that gets lost in translation from the kid’s mouth to the adult’s ears.

We’d love to hear your insulting compliments! (Um, the ones you’ve received from your kids. Not ones directed at us.)
Please visit Divine Secrets of a Domestic Diva. You know you want to. If that pink unitard didn’t do it for you then you should consult a doctor because your funny receptor might be clogged. You can also say “hi” to Susan via Facebook, she won’t mind at all if you do.
