The beloved and I are typical suburban parents in a typical eastern suburb of Melbourne. We have two kids: Titch, our two and a half year old son, and Boofer, our five month old daughter. We have a cat, Humphrey, odd-eyed, deaf and hell-bent on self-destruction. And we have a chequered history of chicken ownership. We go to work, wrangle our kids, hang out with our friends and their kids, eat a lot of ice cream and dream of tropical holidays. Oh, and we’re lesbians.
