Welcome to Stuff We Think About, a.k.a. random thoughts from our editors.
As parents of kids of a variety of ages, we have quite the stream of consciousness at least daily, hourly or sometimes minute by minute. I once heard parenthood compared to a movie in which one never knows what will happen next. This movie, however, can take the unexpected turn from comedy to drama with tears in between, sometimes with bad acting, all in a matter of seconds. And like a favorite movie, parenthood is something we rarely tire of and experience each moment with the same anticipation as the first time we walked into the theater.
