Good memories but perhaps bad parenting?

K_young_image-17A popular Rolling Stones song came on the radio this weekend and triggered memories as music often does. I remembered my daughter in her car seat when we were out driving and thought … “we may not have been the best parents.” We would sing the chorus to the Rolling Stones song (below) when she would see the Golden Arches. She of course always wanted to stop at McDonalds (could have been other places … but I remember McDonalds), and both Brenda and I would say no to her begging … and then proceed into “you can’t always get what you want” which would be followed by a tearful Katelyn saying “stop singing that song!”
