Bright Idea or Not?
While browsing on the internet today for inspiration for a bright idea to write about I was instantly hit with the first picture of baby North West, daughter of Kim Kardashian and Kanye West. It was first shown by Kanye on (Kim’s mum) Kris’s TV Show then tweeted by Kris and all seemed to be a publicity stunt to get people to watch Kris’s US talk show.
This got me wondering, has your mum (or dad) ever used your kids to try and get ahead at something, like Kris Jenner? Maybe they wanted better service at the shopping centre so showed off her gorgeous grandkids to the busy sales lady or maybe she pulled out a picture of her little cuties at a restaurant to get a better table?
Does it also work the other way, does your mum use the fact that your kids are naughty to get served faster at the check out or move to the head of the bank line?
My mum loved to push the pram and show off my kids but I am struggling to think of any time she ‘benefited’ from them. Maybe you have to be well known before your mum gets any real benefits off your children?
Would it bother you if your mum showed off your kids like Kim Kardashian’s mum, Kris Jenner?
Let us know if you have any thoughts if this is a bright idea or not.
