Signs that our parenting standards have weakened since adding additional children to the litter:
Carter wasn't allowed to watch SpongeBob Squarepants until he was 4 years old.
Jack can sing the theme song.
Carter's bed was perfectly made each day; room was kept tidy; design theme was changed each year.
I haven't seen the top of the bunkbed in a week; toys are picked up, but "tidy" is a stretch; what is a theme?
Closets were impeccably organized, clothes hung by size and season, shoes lined up perfectly.
Jack's clothes are still in the guest room closet, seasons are mixed, shoes thrown in a cubby.
