#11: I Don’t Have Time for That
Let’s talk about time management. Can someone help us with this? Because we need it.
John tries to sing a Jim Croce favorite but can’t. But time songs are a thing and many of them can make you cry is what you should know.
The dads support schools efforts to keep kids with peanut allergies alive, even if it makes making meals a pain in the butt.

The dads do it judiciously but NEVER LEAVE YOUR KIDS IN THE CAR WHAT KIND OF LOUSY PARENT ARE YOU?
