A Week on the Wagon: I See Hebrews Edition

The DadWagon Tantrum had a decidedly Judaic cast this week, with all three of us weighing in on the unfair treatment that Hanukkah receives at the hands of Christmas. And yet we have fought back! With a mighty vengeance not seen … since our last Tantrum on some other insignificant topic! At the very least, old Santa knows he was in a fight. Nathan contributed, too, with something about fat Germans. We like that sort of stuff around here.

Speaking of fat, Matt weighed (!) in on whether too much snacking was bad for our children. He also copped to his inner rapist (about time), and called bullshit on the SIDS lobby.

I would have written something in response to that, but I was too busy fantasizing about entering my domestic goddess (come on—that’s pretty good) and playing with someone else’s dreidel.

Nathan, too, was preoccuppied, by the paltriness of his sword and shield. That’s fine, as his shortcomings in that realm drew attention from the fact that he was abusing the help.

Lalaloopsy, folks! (And have a nice weekend.)
