Why have a large family? I do it for the buttercream

“Hey, Sam!” the group of boys yelled at my son as he climbed in our van after school.

He turned, “Yeah?”

One of them asked, “Is that your mom or your daycare?”

“My mom.”

The three boys started laughing. Sam shrugged and climbed into his seat, having no idea why someone would confuse his mother for a daycare. The side of our van doesn’t sport a phone number and stick figure children promising quality care for ages 6 weeks to 12 years.
