29. I Think I’ll Call Him Alvin
Children, to many people, are wonderful and can lead to a sense of fulfillment over time. At the same time, however, they are also very demanding, a lot of work, and sometimes (more often than not) you’re fed up and need a break from them.
In that situation, you may not want to hurt their feelings so they think that you’re rejecting or neglecting them. Honesty is good, but even then they may not care, so creative solutions will have to come up! Having your kids running around the backyard trying to catch a chipmunk is a funny way to do it.
