Biz and Theresa ponder how the “stay at home” order really amps up the idea that when things go wrong for our kids, it is “ALL YOUR FAULT!!!” “Why didn’t you tell me there was an art assignment? Even though I saw everything you did, you should have told me!” Can we just reply, “We didn’t tell you because we want to ruin your life?” The extra patience we have to call upon is intense and self blame is creeping around every corner. Plus, Biz has a secret and Theresa gets musical.
