It takes a village …

Coming upon our third hour of Miss E. trying desperately to tell us what she needed and her parents having no idea what that need was, the following exchange between the new mom and the new dad took place … over the cries of a pretty frustrated 3 month old I should add.

New Dad … “You know it takes a village to raise a child.”

New Mom … “oh yeah?”

New Dad … “That’s what they say.”

New Mom … “Well, where are the village people right now?”

Dad … “At the YMCA I think.”

Mom laughs a lot which just makes the crying 3 month old all the more frustrated.



  1. I don’t think that ‘takes a village’ quote was around in the 70’s…..yet…..but OUR village never showed up either!! :)

    That was a funny post.
