Parental Dread

Here is a list of things you don’t want to hear your spouse say, if you have small children:

  • Where is that water coming from?
    It’s bad enough if it’s on the kitchen floor. Worse if it’s on the bathroom floor. Worst is if you hear that when your spouse is in the room below the kids’ bathtub.
  • I thought you had him…
    It’s bad enough if you don’t know where the child is. Even worse if your spouse doesn’t either.
  • Please tell me that’s chocolate.
    It’s bad enough to find a mystery substance. Even worse if you find it on your khaki pants.
  • Why is it so quiet?
    It’s bad enough when you have to get up from what you were doing to see what the kids are doing. Even worse when you actually find out what they are doing.
  • Here, he’s all yours.
    Enough said.
  • For though I caused you sorrow by my letter, I do not regret it; though I did regret it—for I see that that letter caused you sorrow, though only for a while—

    i read that as “prenatal dread” at first…

    Hmm… I sense a Freudian slip, or something along those lines. Therefore, I infer that you have a reason to be thinking about prenatal stuff.
