I'm certain that Moses left out one important part of the curse as a result of the first sin. The curse also included isolation of Stay at Home Moms.
If you are privileged enough to get all of them down for naps concurrently, you so love the silence that calling a few friends to catch up on holiday happenings and new year expectations is not going to happen. If you wait until the children rise, they will play quietly with one another until the last number is dialed at which time the screaming will commence. It is clear, to me, that this is not a result of anything I have done, rather it is Eve's consequence passed on from generation to generation.
Thank you, Mother of Humanity for isolation. My friends don't know how much I miss them.
Thank you, Al Gore for the Internet. Maybe my friends will read this and know why I don't call as often as I should.
Happy New Year Friends!
