Today, an inquiry from a reader: “Please tell me it’s normal to have to scream JUST DON’T TOUCH HIM! several times a day at reasonably full volume.”

Yes, Virginia, it is.

At least I hope so, since just this morning, I announced to my two boys that 2010 was going to be the Year of Not Touching Maggie and Just Leaving Her ALONE.

I then had to explain to the boys the whole concept of New Year’s resolutions. I have, through this experience, discovered it is much more rewarding to impose resolutions on others than on oneself. For Maggie, 2010 will be the Year of the Potty. The boys, as seen above. David will find 2010 the Year of Payback for Having Given Me a PajamaGram. And so on.

Keep those letters coming!
