In halls of learning, scholars seek truth and wisdom. At the University of Maryland, for example, researchers asked parents to catalog the time they spend with their children. Always willing to help, our lead editorial for Saturday imagines the diary of one harried parent.

Advisory: Don’t let your children read this. It contains secrets that should remain known only to parents.

At The Press Democrat, three people write editorials – Paul Gullixson, Ann DuBay and me – and so we know that one of the three of us wrote this funny commentary on parenthood. Unfortunately, the rules of editorial writing say we’re not allowed to identify her.
