In the early days of Baby Blues
, Darryl and Wanda were surprised at the unexpected demands of parenting. Now, however, the nonstop antics of their lovably active kids, Zoe and Hamish, keep them hopping. Darryl and Wanda have accepted, and even learned to laugh at, the general upheaval of their lives.
In I Shouldn't Have to Scream More than Once! the MacPhersons continue their quest to raise their two small children. One day, Zoe asserts she needs her mother to teach her how to jump rope--"It's a girl thing," she tells Darryl. Later, Wanda and Darryl are happy their son has gone to the potty himself, until Zoe queries, "Don't you want me to tell you where he went" And Wanda resorts to feeding Hammie on the floor after Zoe spots him picking up old peas. At the MacPherson household, it's all fodder for fun that has a delightful edge of truth for parents the world over.
