Today’s parenting revelation is brought to you by Into the Woods.
I think one of the things that makes this show so amazing is the plethora of characters with varying problems, so there is something for everyone to identify with. I personally have generally identified with the Baker’s Wife.
But there’s a new horse in this race. After 12+ years of listening to this show, I finally really hear, and understand, Jack’s Mother.
I wish my son were not a fool.*
I wish the house was not a mess.
I wish the cow was full of milk, I wish the walls were full of gold,
I wish a lot of things.
Get it, Jack’s Mother. I too wish a lot of things.
Which Woods character do you most identify with?
*I don’t think my son is a fool. He’s just three.
