When she was trying to escape, but fell asleep:
“Fun with nail polish on my face, brand new pajamas, and the couch…”
“It happens to everyone, kid.”
When your kid becomes attached to the squash you were going to cook for dinner:
What funny stories do you remember from the lives of your children? Maybe you can share some of them with us.
