Ok. besides being behind in my own writing... I am more than a bit behind satisfying my online addictions of reading about other people's lives.
And when I do get online in stolen moments and I've sent comments that mysteriously disappear or send mid sentence, keep tabs open indefinitely waiting and wanting to comment and just never actually doing it, then the system crashes, and so does my mind, and there we are.
But yesterday, a momentary foray in the world of dooce, brought me to the singularly most hysterical quote about parenting I have ever read.
Resonating, no doubt, with this mother of a 2 and a half year old wildly spirited multi personality-ed spit fire of a holy moly how can That big a Soul fit in that body???
And today, laughing again just thinking about it (the quote), I spent 10 minutes finding it again to share with you.
Without further ado I give you:
Whoever invented parenting is the same type of fucker who would hand you a whisk and a stapler and demand, “Make fire.”
