    I just now got the time and silence to listen to this (and yes, I’m using headphones!). I’m a dad, and my kids are 13 and 10. And we’ve been there, as has everyone I know (close enough to admit it). I even spilled hot coffee on a friend’s 4 month old son after a lovely night of music and debauchery. And that kid is now 16 and amazing (and totally forgives me). So you made me cry (a lot). And I love it! thank you thank you xoxoxo
