AT RISE: Mom is at her computer in the home office. In walks the toddler.
G: (gently attacks mom’s back) CHOMP!
Me: (mumble mumble type type)
G: Hey Mom what are you working on Mom?
Me: Um, well, I’m working on how to take care of a kid when they’re having a temper tantrum. How to take care of you when you’re upset, and be a good mom.
M: What are YOU working on?
G (Brandishing two pairs of kids “zizzors”): CHOMPING YOU.
M: (laughing.) Oh OK!
G: (jumping on her chair and climbing on her back) Do you want a haircut Mom?
