Great Moments In Parenting

I was enjoying a leisurely morning cuppa with a friend who wrangles a blended family of ten. We were stationed at the dining table, close to the kitchen door, and the kids were home. When she poured the tea, my friend automatically put a spoon of sugar in it and stirred it before handing it over with the contents swirling nearly over the brim. That was laugh number one for the day.

A few minutes later, she asked one of the kids zooming past where something was. Her daughter said, “It’s in the upstairs closet, you know, the one where you hide the biscotti.” The ping on that one was five minutes.
