For those of you who are not (or not yet) parents, please allow me to virtually share the experience with. The first thing you need to know is that everything you own is no longer…

“Can I go over to Bob’s?”

“Did you clean your room like you promised?”

“No. I’ll get it later, I promise. Bye!”

As I was saying, all your belongings are now communal property. Your clothes, your wallet, even your toothbrush…

“I can’t find my soccer shorts!”

“Did you look in…”

“I’ve looked everywhere! I can’t find them! What am I going to do? Waah!” (Sound of slamming bedroom door)

Yes even your toothbrush and your deodorant are subject to sharing. On the other hand…

“I don’t mean to interrupt. Well, I guess I do. You know that science project we were assigned last month? Well it’s due tomorrow and I need you to take me to the store to get everything on this list.”

“You haven’t started that? Why in the world not?”

“I forgot. C’mon, we gotta get to the store so I can get started. While I get these things, will you buy me some diet cola and a candy bar?”

I guess I won’t finish the blog, now, but you get the idea.
