Bet me she doesn't find a height teacher.

O.K., so maybe Molly Shattuck makes you want to nail her with a cream pie. Not me. I don't get all these moms who say, "My kids are my life." They spend every Saturday watching their kids play in yet another soccer tournament and every Saturday night sitting in some icebox watching their 4,008th hockey practice. Their conversational skills range from "Amber is kicking butt in field hockey" to "Amber loves goalie camp." That's great, but since when does Amber starting mean you ending? Get out there!

"Toward the end of the games, we're all exhausted," Helfenbein says, "and there's Molly, still jumping up and down, going nuts. I'm like, 'Molly, what are you on?'"

Life.
