Texting While Parenting: An Excerpt

Me: Both kids are sobbing. I get bonus points for that, right?
Her: What did you do to them?
Me: I locked them in the basement, blasted The Carpenters' Greatest Hits and beheaded stuffed animals in a ritual sacrifice to easy listening music.
Her: Oh.
Me: Not really. It was Air Supply. I hate The Carpenters.

Some days being four and six is rough. Some days being thirty-nine is a little tricky too.

Oh boy. My friends are going through the same thing right now (5 and 3). This Aunty hasn't been over there much, as you might guess.

You definitely get bonus points. It takes a pair to stick to your parenting guns with them double-teaming you with the sobbing.
