Have you ever spoken out at your child's school — and then wished you could change your words?
When writer Karen Mangiacotti got a request from her child's school for help setting up some heavy science equipment, and when she saw that the request was addressed only to dads, she wanted to know why moms weren't included. She responded with her characteristic humor, only to become known in the school community as "Penis Mom."
Dear teachers and parents:
Are you guys seriously only asking for Dads?
Is lifting done with a penis?
Do the moms at your child's school do the heavy lifting?
