Six months ago, we embarked onto new Parenthood by embracing the new sunshine into our lives.

“Spinning the dial in either direction facilitates you to experience infancy and senility alternatively”.
“He is bluffing”, quipped Paul releasing a huge snort.
“Why don’t you step forward and test it yourself?”.
Incredulously, Paul spun the dial clockwise and was flabbergasted at everyone’s wrinkled skin and grey-haired scalps. Vigorously, he spun it counter clockwise, that made everybody crawl around in soiled diapers.
