Three Ring Circus

Killjoy! they said when I told them to stop throwing rocks at the grill. Sophie tried to wiggle out of the chair, out from under Henry's insistent arm laid over her lap. Can't I bring her inside? he asked. You hold her! he said to Oliver. Oliver crouched nearby, a pile of rocks at his feet. I circled my three children with the hose, trying not to overwater.


  1. Sometimes it's like herding cats, isn't it? How do we do it? How do you do it?
    We don't know. We just do. We try not to throw rocks.
    I love you.

  2. This was funny. I can just see you hosing all three!
