B Session: Parenting Tasks I Don’t Feel Like Doing Anymore, Part II

In late 2015, I wrote about all of the parenting tasks I didn’t feel like doing anymore. Well it’s been 18 months or so, and guess what, I don’t have to do some of them anymore! Isn’t that the magic of childhood? Of parenthood really? Kids grow up, and suddenly they can be trusted to eat […]
