so my worst nightmare has happened: she is listening to coldplay
Is that worse than mine liking Mariah Carey?
I remember the good old days when the worst crisis a parent could face was their child attempted to use their credit card to charter a helicopter to fly across state lines to get lunch with their camp friend!

99% chance that the latter part of that statement is directly caused by the first part... B because of A.

this isn't so much a parenting issue as an issue that folks have with my parenting - but science is on my side, bitches:

Summer Vacation:

The time of the year where our 16 year old watches King of the Hill all day, goes to the pool, goes running, goes to the gym, and trashes the kitchen daily while her parents work 9-10 hours a day. Dad, full time telework. Mom, three days home two in office.

And either because dear daughter refuses or is incapable of properly cleaning, the job falls to Dad because "after all she is just a kid" (Mom's quote, not Dad's) and "I work harder than you." (Mon's quote not Dad's.)

I think you should take the whole family to Courtney Barnett as a bonding experience.

Would you be ok with a $50 surcharge for loud gay couples?

But gay couples aren’t annoying


In fact I kind of like them!
