As Queen Interpreter of the World to 3 girls, I’m faced daily with the prospect of coming up with clever, seemingly accurate answers to the most stirring questions facing great minds under 5 today. These include:
Why do mommas need so much sleep?
Because that’s how we recharge our superpowers
Do you really actually have eyes in the back of your head, or are you just kidding?
No I’m not kidding. I actually can see everything you do at all times so clean up your toys and stop hitting your sister.
Are people only alive when they’re in heaven?
Are people alive in heaven?
ARE PEOPLE ALIVE IN HEAVEN, I SAID!!
Ask your Father.
Why do we have so many grandmas?
Because mommy & daddy are in the post-divorce generation and we’re all paying the price now for the self-discovery and self-expression of the Me-Generation (aka: Boomers) who all chose to end 1 or 2 marriages in the 70s and 80s and remarry and create a huge mess for Gen X to clean up.
