Anybody who has followed the Adventures of Hypertot knows we're doing our level best. However, every parent is subject to the judgmental sniffs of the Cat Brigade, the mothers of other kids who wait to pounce on our every slip. (Oddly enough, other kids' fathers tend not to be so competitive. I've been a single dad myself, and I understand why.)
Let's face it, we're imperfect parents. So are most parents, despite their insecure efforts to make us feel like our license to reproduce ought to be revoked. (News flash: we're Catholic! We're on a procreative mission from God!) The Imperfect Parent was created for us. Start off with this and count your blessings that it doesn't get this bad very often.
