Just one of the myriad of reasons why we will not be voted Parents of the Year

That’s Tigger-ette in the foreground, tossed in a box with her bottle and her brother’s toy. And that’s Muffin stuffing his face with about the fiftieth plum of the afternoon. He consequently spent hours on the toilet being cleansed in a way no high-colonic could ever do. The dark green blob with white strip is Marc, and the leg dangling from his shoulder is his child laborer, one of the three munchkins belonging to a friend who came to help out. The arm and the tri-colored kid are his brothers.

So, you thinking pre-paid mental heath care like me or what?

    Oh my god! I love how she looks like she was just tossed into the box, legs askew. Hilarious!

    Plums, huh? Gotta try that. Cost effective.

    I gave my kids a choice: help with college or therapy. The first chose college. The second one is leaning toward therapy...

    Children being tortured, errr, having fun in the French countryside. What a great picture.

    I'm giggling at Muffin's 'ready for the toilet' pose...he must have known what was coming! His expression is priceless, btw.

    What? You aren't supposed to keep your kids in a box?

    Well, when you don't have a playpen handy....a box will do.

    Cute pic!
