"That's My Friend!"

You want your kid to have friends, but then what if you don't like their friends?

"Elmo and the Gecko Frog are my friends!" [via the kid just outside Baltimore on the way to NYC last week, image via usatoday]



My daughter went through a stage where she was in love with this gecko. She's get all excited whenever a commercial came on (which was all the time when I was watching hockey), or saw the billboard...

And it isn't good to judge your daughter's friend prematurely. Invite Elmo and the gecko frog over for dinner, and get to know them. You may find that you like them afterall. You may even find out that the gecko frog isn't really a frog at all!

[believe me, I already lost the frog battle. -ed.]
