Young Girls & Mothers
Aunt Karen is the mother of two high-spirited young girls. When I called her one morning, our conversation was constantly interrupted by the din of kids screaming and chasing each other. 'Could you hold on for a moment?' my aunt finally asked, putting down the phone.
Within ten seconds all I could hear was absolute silence. Then, 'Okay, I'm back.'
'But it's so quiet!' I exclaimed. 'You must have complete control over those two.'
'Not really,' my aunt confessed wearily. 'I'm in the closet.'
