For those who are not parents, or are parents of a different generation, the question most often asked of me, a parent, is "What's it like?"
I could talk about the impossibility of removing children from the parental bed, the cult worship of dessert, or perhaps the proper technique to invert a reasonably sized child.
The best window a person can have on what parenting is like in 2015 is to view a snippet of text messages. The above is a fine example of a modern child's concern for tasty food, cracking wise, and technology.
The 13-year-old daughter just read this post over my shoulder and has approved this message with the caveat that she be identified as the author of the above text. Sobeit.
