Ladies and Gentlemen, We Are Now Exiting Stepford.

Pool parents. Pulled-together parents, intimidating in their two-tone khaki ensembles and full makeup in the middle of the day. County parents, big and brassy, with tans and cleavage. Local parents, on the other end of middle age, wrinkly, buff, PhD'd. Parents with dyed hair and tattoos. Parents who may be rock stars.

It's strange to be back with the Kid. There's no taking up where we left off; it's been a year, kids grow up. He's mellowed; the baby's grown more obnoxious. That's okay. They're good kids. I'm just nervous trying to talk to them.

That's about it.
