Parent Outside the Home--Update from Friday

Yesterday I wrote about how every one of my kids has a parent (or more) outside the home.  Today that fact was clear in the New York Times.  My youngest daughter Lisa and her Mom published a letter together in the NY Times commenting on and article about toys.  You can read it here.

In the evening my oldest daughter Lauren and I went to Starbucks in Lancaster.  The barrista Jamie knows my family (Except my wife who does not go to Starbucks) and Starbucks sells the Times, so we told Jamie about the letter.  Then we had one of those awkward parent-outside-the-home moments when we explained who was who.

Explaining who is related to whom and how is a regular part of life in our family.
