Open letter to Angelina Jolie

To whom it may concern (only Angelina Jolie),

Now that you are going to be a stay-at-home parent, I was thinking that we should really hang out. I'm here everyday stay-at-home-parenting, and although I have only one kid to contend with, and you will have four, if we were to get together for a few play dates, it would be like one adult for every 2.5 kids, which is not so bad. I figure I can take care of Maeve (you'll like her, she's Asian) and Pax, and you can take care of Shiloh and Zahara, and we'll let Maddox watch TV, or we can drop him off at Chuck-E-Cheese (they have a room full of plastic balls that will keep him entertained for hours). It would be way too hard for the two of us to take care of all five kids, so without Maddox, we'll be fine. These are the kinds of tips I can share with you as I've been doing this a little longer than you.

Are you still breast-feeding Shiloh? If you are, that's cool, because I'm immuned to seeing that sort of thing - I saw it alot with Maeve and Maeve's mother. I'm actually pretty good at helping out during the feedings.

Also, I thought I'd mention that there are a few Vietnamese restaurants in the area that deliver in case Pax doesn't like sandwiches. By the way, you might think about changing that one's name. I have a feeling that in a few years, some of the other kids at school would have a field day with the nick-names (Tam-pax and Chicken-pax, just to name a few). We may want to rethink the Jolie as well. But we'll have plenty of time to talk about all of that later.

So, just post a comment on this page (I'll start reading the comments) and we can arrange it. Also please include a phone number in the comment, so we can "talk privately" about the kids, snack foods, diaper preferences, etc.
