When your experience of parenthood was one of constant screaming and struggle, sometimes the experiences of other parents can be a little baffling.

Me: “I went to see Pug Mama last night. Her new baby was awake and not crying.”

PH: “I don’t understand. Is that possible?”

Me: “And then I held her for a while and she just fell asleep.”

PH: “That sentence doesn’t make sense.”

Me: “Wait, it gets better – then, I put her down, and she didn’t wake up.”


Me: “And then, and then, when she DID wake up, she just opened her eyes and started watching the boys play. She didn’t cry or anything.”

PH: “I know you think you’re speaking normally, but your words are garbled and nonsensical. Do you have aphasia?”
