    We could point fingers all day but the blame game will get us nowhere. The most important thing is that no one was hurt. Except the fish. They’re dead.

    Oh my goodness, I laughed so hard I cried. I felt like I was reading something written from my son’s point of view (when he was a few years younger and thus even less rational).

    Apart from being hilarious, I love how this site is emphasising the agency of very young children contrasted against the plans of their parents. It’s a very good reminder.

    The part that most resonated with me was the REI joke. Made my day.

    I just read through all the posts. The one about one-year-olds was high-LAR-ious.

    “just because we’re in a similar height range doesn’t mean we have anything in common, buddy.”
