Parenting is one of those things that, more and more, we’re expected to do on our own – even though back in the day, parenting was definitely a group project and literally everyone was better for it.

10. She followed directions.
And also she’s winning at life.
Lost my temper with my daughter because she wouldn't get dressed, and told her she couldn't come downstairs until she'd changed out of her pyjamas. She's just changed into ANOTHER PAIR OF PYJAMAS.

9. It’s a mask, it covers her face.

4. Amazing is one word for it.
That kid is obviously going places.
My daughter had a Zoom class yesterday. The teacher's internet went out, so one of the kids was made the default host. He muted everyone, pretended to teach the class, and then just said "fart" over and over until the teacher was able to join back. It was amazing.

Kid in my son’s class explained to me that she was sure he has two moms because he has “the pretty mom and the other mom.” She described each to me in some detail.
Reader, both are me.
