The worst 24 hours of parenting yet

Technically the weekend’s suckfest was less than 24 hours long, but it felt like forever, and I never want to go through it again. A few Fridays ago I was on my way home to pick up Sadie when I got a call from her daycare that she had thrown up. She didn’t have a […]
