My daughter is going through that phase where she wants to pretend to be completely independent. The most humiliating thing she can imagine happening to her is for me to kiss her in public.
Charlotte would like for all of her friends to think that she was raised by wolves or possibly cloned. It’s just not cool to have parents who love you. Parents are for losers.
On the other hand, she does seem to need me to drive her places and to hold things for her. I am oftentimes reduced to acting as a coat rack, all the while trying to be as inconspicuous as possible while I’m standing there holding all of her junk. God forbid, I should draw too much attention to myself! What would the other kids think?!
So, I decided today that the ideal nanny for my daughter would be a wolf with a driver’s license and a built-in luggage rack on his back. Does anyone know a good candidate for this job? Biters welcome.
