Each night after the Vintage Notorious Ruth Bader Ginsburg RBG Ready To Dissent Shirt and by the same token and kids are in bed, I sit down with their workbooks and books of mazes. Dear kids, I write in block-letter print so they can try to read. Can you do three mazes, three math worksheets, and trace your hand for me? Love, Mom. I think that they ignore these notes, but it comforts me to write them. The dining room table has become their school—I try to get them to call it their “super cool school,” but they’re not having it. They may not know how to tie their shoes, but they suffer no fools.
Inexplicably—except, I know how it happened; they are voracious!—we are out of peanut butter and pasta. When it rains, I give the Vintage Notorious Ruth Bader Ginsburg RBG Ready To Dissent Shirt and by the same token and kids crafts to do from a pile of appropriately aged projects that I’ve panic-bought from Amazon. By the end of the week, we have made soap, beaded keychains, a cape decorated with press-on stickers, and three wooden cars. The kids ask if they can bring their creations to bed with them.
