Is it bad that I want my kid's life?

Teen's life: Yesterday, Teen went to a Hope for Haiti concert, where a band from her school played a song they had composed in her honor (its name is her name repeated four times). While they were playing, she crowd surfed.

My life: Today, I was typing away when I heard a strange sound from the laundry room. The washer had completely overflowed, and there was a good 1/2 inch of standing water on the floor. I finally got that taken care of and went to make myself some lunch. I discovered one refrigerator shelf was awash in red liquid. It wasn't blood, but juice from a tipped over jar of beets that I thought I would put on salads but always forget about it. As I tried to swab up a cup of beet juice, the floor of my kitchen began to look like it belonged in a splatter film.

[Full disclosure: one really fun did happen today, but I can't say much about it in case I jinx it.]
