My parents visited us from the mainland. And...shocker...Dan spent most of their 2 weeks here traveling or out to sea etc. So for much of their visit they slept in my room and I roomied up with Red. She was sleeping in a sleeping bag on the floor and me in her bed. As we were getting ready for bed one night, I offered to sleep on the couch in the living room so Red could have her own bed.
"No mom, you need to know what it is like to not have a TV in your room."
Does CPS remove children from homes for such deprivation?
GingersMom: Red, if you get any more beautiful the boys are gonna come after you and you'll have to beat them off with sticks.
GingersMom: Yes to the boys a'comin or yes to the sticks?
Yesterday I was sitting mindlessly like tub of jello (As per usual), the kids outside playing when I heard Savannah shouting:
LINUS IS HAVING BABIES!!! LOOK HE'S HAVING A BABY!
One might become alarmed to learn their neutered male dog is giving birth. However, as one wise friend once told me...denial is key. The best parenting advice ever...just pretend it's not happening.
