Oh ... so, THAT's Why.

The apparent origins of maternal 'smothering.'
.........................................................................................................................................................................


Claire/ Wife:
"You think I smother our children?!"


Phil/Husband:
"It's not your fault, honey. 'Mother' is already in the word. You never hear of anyone 'sfathering' their children to death."

I think "sfathering" should be used when I let my children run outside with no shoes and no jacket on a 50 degree day.

Kellee -- Or, sfathering is when I help create a 7 ft high snow ramp in the back yard so the boys can do some night sledding. Yep. I think we're on to something.
