@copymama: 9yo: What age do kids go to normal jail?
Me: I’m not sure, I guess 18?
@copymama: My kids as adults explaining my disappearance: 20 years ago she said if we didn't hurry up she'd leave without us, & we never saw her again.
@copymama: Got a text from an unknown number that said “I’m on my way,” so I'm tweeting this from the closet.
@copymama: “Wait, the video is almost over!” - any kid with 17 minutes left on their video
@copymama: Me: Get off the iPad and play with your new gifts.
9yo: Ok, can you help me set up this microscope? Do we have vinegar and distilled water for this craft set? How does this weaving loom work? Can you do a mad lib with me?
Me: Go play the iPad.
@copymama: My husband is obsessed with keeping our new car in pristine condition, so I carry a little vial of glitter with me at all times in case he pisses me off.
@copymama: Kids save all their deepest questions about the universe for when you’re singing along to a really good song in the car.
