“Read dis one, Mama!” I mean I’m really glad she has an eye for the classics, but it might be a bit soon for Jilly Cooper.
A courier came knocking this morning with this little gem, ordered by my outstanding husband. I’ve been wanting to read “I heart my little a-holes” by Karen Alpert ( Baby Sideburns) ever since she had it published. Now three things need to happen so I can sit down and read it: 1. The baby needs to fall asleep. 2. The dishes/laundry need to do themselves. 3. I need to go back in time to this morning and change the three year old’s punishment from “you will not be watching Frozen today!” to something else so that I can regain 98 minutes of relatively demand-free time. Failing that, I may fake a minor stomach upset that necessitates I sit in the loo all day while Someone Else looks after the kids.
