MGMT – Kids

It’s a Saturday night and I’m spending it at the hospital with my daughter. She seems to be doing much better now; after four days with a stomach bug she was getting dehydrated and looked just pitiful.

This song is my ringtone when my daughter calls me. She just started middle school in a different town with a long bus ride so getting her a phone seemed like a good idea. She mostly just texts though.

When you think about having kids, people talk about babies, the sleepless nights, diapers, feeding, maybe they go so far as to talk about vaccines. But no one says, holy hell, you are not going to believe how often they are sick and when it gets bad, you will never be more scared.
