Irene Tweets

In the face of danger or chaos, us parents need to keep calm and carry on. Our kids do not need us hyperventilating and freaking out in anticipation of something like a natural disaster, and many a parent in the East Coast was faced with this dilemma thanks to Hurricane Irene.

And a place for an instant giggle in 140 characters or less? Twitter.
