Posted on May 29, 2006
OK, we give up: With news of The Birth pushing all other news off the international agenda, here’s a satirical guide from Slate that helps parents express why they love the Brangelina baby more than their own children.
Mommy, what’s the Brangelina baby?
It’s a question no parent is ready to answer, but one that is being asked by younger and younger children. As parents, it’s our job to help them.
Understanding the Warning Signs:
How can parents know if their children aren’t coping well with the Brangelina baby? Stay alert. Monitor your kids’ television viewing, Web surfing, and glossy celebrity-weekly reading habits. Also, look for nonverbal signs: moodiness, anger, silence, anxiety, regression, nightmares, bed-wetting. These may be indicators that your child is struggling with the Brangelina baby.
