You know those children who open the refrigerator door just to get something to eat?
Who let their parents handle the disposal of toothbrushes,
and would never think of touching their mom’s make up,
or taking more than just a square or two of toilet paper?
Those children who can walk past a can of paint without prying it open and painting their brother
or see a permanent marker without picturing themselves as a tiger?
I have never given birth to one of those.*
*I swear I watch my children, I’m actually a little bit on the paranoid side so probably watch them too closely. But there are a lot of them and they are fast and sometimes I have to brush my teeth or pee or blink. Every mess is just evidence of their future creativity right?
