A Parents’ Union

I think we need to get organized. Obviously that is true of the “we” in our house. But I mean the collective “We.” I have some grievances I need to file.

1. I am being denied one of the assumed basic priveleges of motherhood. Neither of my children, awake or asleep, will tolerate the tender tucking of a blanket under their chins. I am willing to negotiate down to a waist-level tuck.

2. While it is within the rights of very small children (<4) to wake up in the middle of the night, all said children living under one roof could reasonably coordinate those wakings so as not to be switching back and forth all damn night.

    Creative use of velcro would fix both of these problems.
