Less drama?


Clearly never met my boys.

Halfway through a meeting my WhatsApp starts having a seizure.

I apologise, check the frantic messages and excuse myself.

“I’m sorry, there seems to be family emergency.”


It went like this:


Child 2 makes an off-colour joke.

Child 1 is not impressed.

Child 2 laughs.

Child 1 doesn’t.

Child 1 punches Child 2.

Child 2 arms himself with scissors.

Child 1 shoves Child 2 into the bathroom.

Child 1 locks the door.

Boy Mom rushes home expecting to find a body.

Boy Mom finds Child 1 and Child 2 playing video games. Together.

Boy Mom pours herself a G&T.
