I am a Tri Delta and Ben is an ATO. We had a large time in our respective Greek houses during college, and I spent a lot of time as an officer on a disciplinary committee, Standards. These first few weeks of motherhood have me reliving my sorority president experience. I feel like I’m in one long Standards meeting.
Me: Marryn, do you know why you were called into Standards?
Marryn: Was it because I threw up all over myself last night? I wasn’t feeling well and had a large dinner.
Me: Well, partly…
Marryn: Was it because I was caught in a pool of my own urine this morning? I had a really long night. You don’t understand.
Me: That’s some of it, yes…
Marryn: Was it because I shacked at the ATO house? I just took a nap, I swear!
Me: Well, we actually didn’t know about that…
Marryn: Was it because I kept the house up last night with wild crying? I’m only three weeks old and I’ve been having difficulty expressing myself lately.
Me: OK, that’s enough. As punishment for the above offenses, you must do five hours of study hall and pay a $50 fine.
Marryn: Ummmm, no. I don’t want to.
Me: Fine. I’m calling your mother. Wait…Damnit.
Speaking of college, here’s a picture of Marryn in her first OU onesie. Unfortunately, we had to ritualistically burn it after losing to Missouri last Saturday. Sorry baby girl.
