Yes, I Love You. Now Leave Me Alone so I Can Watch Steamy Sex Scenes on Cable

Someone shared this bit o' poetry tonight and I died laughing. Anyone who is a parent (I don't care how damn kind-hearted you are) has thought this at one time... or about twice a week like me when your kids absolutely will not go to bed.

I dedicate this to TWIN, who has given more drinks of water, something to eat, fear-of-dark soothings, stomachache discussions and other nonsense to her smart bird-loving whipper snapper than many. And just when she gets one to stay in bed, the other kid surfaces and probably throws her pajamas in the still-full tub. *Sigh*


Sleep tight Mick and Mads, and for God's sake....well, you know.

That book has gotten a lot of buzz lately.. was thinking about buying it for a couple friends of mine with babies - I'm sure they'd relate!

Apparently TWIN and I have a lot in common when it comes to getting kids to bed. This is a laugh while you cry book because it's both pathetic and hilarious.

LOVE IT!!!! I wish I could have had that when Frederick was younger! Would it have been completely wrong to read it to a 3 year old?!?!
