    I bet the girl in the red beret knows more about taking care of kids.

    I think you’re right. She’s a lot easier on the eyes.

    Well, at least she didn’t say they belong in other peoples’ houses, or little green bottles full of alcohol. (My view until we had our own. They grow on you.)

    “Close enough”? These are your children, Alex, not a couple of houseplants. I had no idea Alex was such an uncaring mother. Seems her only criteria is to hire someone ugly so she doesn’t have to worry about her husband cheating on her. Whether this person can actually take care of her babies isn’t all that important, I guess.

    I assume you never made any cracks about your kids to other people. it’s called a “joke.”

    Considering she has only been a parent for five minutes…

    This is a politically correct strip, so the left-behinds are always flagging something.

    Jealousy makes for difficult relationships. Even more so when the emotion is founded on facts.

    Hey..let’s not forget that Rick and Joanie were both working parents with career aspirations and Jeff turned out..um..er…never mind.

    @Swalb%515

    Which is precisely why she wasn’t hired.

    She knows as much as Alex did, or any new mother.
