Listening to "This American Life" right now. This is fascinating and terrifying and hilarious in different points.

Made this recent news item come to mind:

We listened to that in the car with the Emperor and the Magician. E and I had this conversation a couple of days later:

E: hey mom, remember when we heard on the radio about the bad babies? That kid was so bad, his dad took him to the bad boys home?
Me: ye-e-e-es... why do you mention it?
E: Oh, just thinking about it. About the bad boys home.
Me: do you suppose you're going there?
E: (genuine surprise) No no, not me. I'm a good boy. (pause)
E: But my friend T at school... (sigh)
E: He's been biting a lot lately, and I think he better watch himself...

That was a great/terrifying episode! Fave part was when the kid was crying in the local grocery store in front of everyone about not wanting to eat cat food for dinner anymore...

That little boy that keeps trying to murder his siblings though, yikes!

OMG I felt so bad for that poor mother with the murderous eldest son. What an unimaginable nightmare.
I was so happy that the rest of the episode wasn't as depressing!

I know, that definitely did not make me feel better about the new sibling adjustment period we have coming up...
