quality parenting

The children were playing a game where one was a monster and the other one a giant, and they were talking on their imaginary celphones. I left the room as their playing seemed peaceful, but soon I heard them both shouting, ""I'm going to tell!"

"No, I am going to tell!"


"I'M TELLING FIRST!" They tore upstairs, screaming.

I covered my ears with both hands and chanted, "LA LA LA I CAN'T HEAR YOU, LA LA LA I CAN'T HEAR YOU!"

Lola burst out laughing and was instantly charmed out of her anger, but Iris is made of sterner stuff. She screamed into my left ear as loudly as she could, "CAROLE, LUCY TOUCHED ME!"

Hours later, my ear is still ringing.
