    We’ve been getting a meal kit service and 9yo has been gamely trying all of it, but the other day it was salmon, which I knew he’d never eat, so I made him chicken fingers from frozen instead. He was like “WOW, is this hello fresh? This is INCREDIBLE.”

    I tracked 16’s phone to see if he was where he was supposed to be. He was not. So I called 16 and asked where he was. He named the place he was supposed to be. I said oh REALLY? And the sound of his sighing realization that technology is a real bitch literally made my whole day.

    At my daughter’s 4-year checkup, the doctor said she should be eating a varied diet and to make sure she’s eating a good amount from each food group and I think she said a bit about trying new foods but not sure cause I got distracted wondering if she’d ever actually met a 4yo.

    My tween daughter is the only one among her group of friends who doesn’t have a phone. I know this because she tells me every 30 minutes.

    [any time my family enters the room when I’m working] - are you on a call? - is it a video call? - are you on mute? - is it the kind where you have to pay attention? - are you even awake?

    You can be a calm, rational person who doesn’t rage-eat potato chips before 10am, or you can be a parent of children doing online school. You cannot be both.

    My 4-year-old wanted to use talk-to-text to send a message to his aunt. This is what was sent. My 4-year-old is THE world's worst rapper.

    Me, to 8y.o: “Why do you watch YouTube videos of other people playing video games when you could play them yourself?” 8: “Well, why do YOU watch TikTok videos of people dancing when you could do the dances yourself?” Well played, kid.
