"Is Elsie home?"

Rose: i'm going to be SUCH a helicopter parent
Rose: i pity our child in advance
Rose: "i broke my shoelace" GET ANOTHER ONE BEFORE YOU TRIP AND FALL AND CRACK YOUR HEAD OPEN
Xtina: oh boy
Rose: NO WAIT VELCRO FOR EVERYONE
Rose: IT'S THE ONLY WAY
Xtina: gigantic bubbles for all!
Rose: yes!
Xtina: imagine coming out to the other children's parents
Rose: ...
Rose: okay, so, no lie
Rose: i IMMEDIATELY wanted to stock up on extra oxygen canisters for the bubbles
Xtina: ...wow
Rose: my brain is a special place
Xtina: suuure
Xtina: i figure we'll just keep you on taurine for the first fifty years of the kid's life
Rose: that seems like a good idea
Xtina: here i thought i was gonna be the anxious one, all "just sit in a corner for the rest of your life, you don't NEED to learn how to cross the street"
Rose: meanwhile i'm shoring up the ceiling over the corner
Rose: just in case

Maybe you could wrap yourself in one part of the velcro and then the child in the complementary part--STICK WITH ME, KID

I suspect you'll be fine. I expect you'll ALL be fine.

N. B. Girls start getting hormonal around age 3. That's been my experience, after raising two girls of my own and being part of the two girls's lives here at Santaroga.

Just remember. It'll all be ok. Really. I swear. We humans have been doing this for millennia.

I'ma gonna shaddup now.

In Veronica Mars, which if you haven't seen you should, her father wanted to put her in a bullet-proof hamster ball. Since she was present at a school shooting that day, it's not quite as creepy as it sounds :)

I would say if you have not seen Veronica Mars, do not under any circumstances watch the 3rd season, and perhaps get spoilers for the other 2?

There is awesome, but there is also incredibly painful fail
