I think I've figured out why Edie's such a tyrant and why she's so quick to resort to fisticuffs.
Yes, she drinks too much.
At least she does when Mommy leaves me and the kids alone for the weekend to head off to some hifalutin birthday party in Sonoma. What else are we gonna do, but lay around the house drinking Tecate and peeing in our pants? It's fun for the whole family!
Less fun for the whole family is when Mommy comes back to Seattle with a crippling cold. Nothing like the giddy anticipation of some parental help after single parenting for a weekend, following immediately by the crushing realization that you're now parenting three little babies instead of two.
Looks like we'll need more Tecate...
