Co-Parenting is a Synonym for Twice as Much Work

As someone who fell into co-parenting (those of you who know me know both my husband and I work out of the house these days), I’m here to tell everyone what is wrong with this on-the-face-of-it amazing advance in sexual relations. In the time my husband and I spend negotiating the logistics of school pick-ups, playdate organization and the like, one of us could have just done the job themselves. As a result, all l I could think as I read Lisa Belkin’s article on co-parenting in the NYT Magazine this weekend was, “Why didn’t she ask these couples how many hours they spent arguing about who would do what and then devising the organization charts that kept their homes running?”

Folks, there has to be a better way.
