I better be parent A

Back in 2005, guest-blogger Chad wrote about a proposed change on birth certificates that would change the labels Mother and Father to Parent A and Parent B. It seemed kind of absurd that such a thing would happen but 5 years later, it has. Chad sends along the update that the new State Department passport applications will do just that. I don’t know why we’d stop at just Parent A and B. Isn’t that a little unfair to polygamists, parents of twiblings and other nontraditional families?

Could Parent #2 not connote a slightly inferior or less important parent? Who does #2 work for??

Exactly. That’s why my husband will be parent #2.
