A Lunch by Any Other Name Would Not Taste As Sweet

A Lunch by Any Other Name Would Not Taste As Sweet

So, like, kids are kind of a pain.  I mean, I love them and all, and, most of the time, I even like them. They’re funny and cute and sweet. But when it comes to basic human functions, they are so particular, sometimes I’m tempted to just let them fend for themselves. Take getting dressed. I am strictly, adamantly, forbidden to help the baby in any manner whatsoever, lest I unleash Kicker, the Beast of Flailing Feet.
