the parental challenge of late is dealing with hysterical, irrational fear. usually at bedtime.

"the witch flew out of the computer and is under the chair and is going to kill me," accompanied by tears and screaming.

i grabbed the witch from under the chair, took her downstairs and flushed her down the toilet. the 3-year-old wanted to know whether i locked the bathroom door behind me. i lied and said i did.

last night it was the curtains.

parenthood: a continual refutation of the arrogant claims of rationality.
