The Non-Maternal Type

Tuesday night, Vivi had a little big toilet accident. Shannon, as the first responder, had to extricate our preschooler from the mess, and such was the stench that she involuntarily went, “Ewwww. Parenting!”

Julia immediately asked, “Why did Mama say, ‘Ewwww. Parenting!’?” I replied (as Shannon left the room in search of uncontaminated air) that sometimes being a parent isn’t too much fun, that sometimes, we have to clean up really gross messes. Julia smiled, nodded wisely, and said, “And that is why I’m never going to be a parent.”
