The Best Parents in the World
Our cast of characters:
Me (The Daddy)
The Bean: Age 7
The Butterfly: Age 5
The Darling Wife
Special Guest Star: Jacky the cat
The Darling Wife and I are the best parents in the world. This is the only reasonable explanation.
How else could we keep a one-year-old Bean happy? How else could we possibly keep her from constantly screaming at the top of her little lungs 24 hours a day, seven or more days a week?
So with a smug sense of satisfaction, the DW and I settle into the sofa to watch something inane.
And we can hear the TV! No crying; no bawling; no singing - nothing but silence.
Silence? Uh, oh.
We scramble through the house and at last find the Bean and her accomplice eating Butterscotch chips off the floor in front of the pantry.
How amazingly unsanitary.
Better take a picture first.
