Well, it feels like it’s time for an update to my “Domestic Disruptions” post.
First, an apparently-necessary public service announcement:
Husbands: Just in case you were wondering, in the event that your parents decide to drop in for a three month visit, no, your wife will NOT be okay with the both of you sleeping on a cheap air mattress in your open, not-even-slightly-private living room for the duration. And shockingly, being on an air mattress in an open room in a house where your inlaws are sleeping is also NOT a turn-on. (A) Borrow someone’s RV. (B) Insulate the garage and buy a bed. (C) Put the kids in a room together-better they be at each other’s throats than you and your wife.
Okay, back to our previously scheduled programming. (And to answer your not-yet-commented question, we have gone with C.)
In other news, this just in: a preschooler who has been successfully potty trained for over a year can, when her routine is disrupted, revert rather shockingly on the whole “potty accidents” front. Even if the disruption is a largely positive one.
The next Bard’s Tale post will be a chapter from someone else’s life. Names will be changed to protect the innocent (but mostly, to protect me from getting sued). It’s a true story. It’s an inspiring story, about someone who has inspired me. I hope you enjoy it.
