There comes a time in every parent’s life where the thought of purchasing chains and locks makes perfect sense. Why is it that during the school year our children try and sleep later in the mornings, but during the summer they must get up between 5:30 & 6am (including weekends)? WHY?”
Not to long ago on a Sunday morning I found myself at our local park (1 block from the house) with a coffee in my hand watching 3 of my 4 kids having a blast on the monkey bars. This was all happening before 7AM. You would think that we would be the only nut jobs in the park at this crazy time of day……. You would be wrong. I found out that day that there is a place where the walking dead inhabit the earth. They even have their own language and indulge themselves with coffee. The mommies and daddies of the these, I guess you can call them “children”; I like little demons, were walking around aimlessly, slumped over, obviously wearing what ever they could easily find that morning, grasping their beverage, glancing at each other and without opening their mouths saying: Help Me, Please Help? They would look at me then look towards the entrance of the park as if saying “we're going to make a run for it, are you in”? I wanted to say yes but thankfully the coffee started to kick in and I heard my kids giggling.
