What's A Mother To Do?
"It's hard enough to leave behind the toys, the cartoons, the books, the warm bed, and the dog every morning and head off to school. But when your mom and your little brother, Wally--and all the great adventures you just know they're having--well, then it's almost impossible to go.
"Imagine...while you're writing your name at the blackboard, Mom and Wally are jumping on all the beds in the house--with their shoes on. While you're counting out marbles, Mom and Wally are sliding down the laundry chute--headfirst. "With that--and much more--going on (at least in your head), how could you ever go to school?" (Gibbs Smith 1996)
