have nice things.” And then I found out there was a book written about it! This book is a series of essays about parenting and marriage. You can start in any chapter without having to worry about having read the one before it. Which is good, considering the fact that one of the chapters is titled, “the day we caught our kids looking at their buttholes,” and curiosity had me reading that chapter first. Then my eye caught, “just because I get up in the night, doesn’t mean I deserve praise,” and I had to read that chapter next.
