You left me hanging! Did she figure out a permanent solution? Or is it an endless stream of breakthrough technologies that the drones keep beating? What happened to all the toddlers? ... so many questions ... and no answers!!

Well done! Love the tone and surprises, and the escalating arms technology arms race.

Ah, dependence on technology to solve problems technology created. A vicious circle. Or parents could return to actual parenting. 😉 Humans, yeesh!

Another great story! This one has a tinge of “Black Mirror” to it. Loved it.

Great illustration of how escalation happens in conflicts. I wonder what would change if someone took time to communicate with the drones

Absolutely ridiculous. I love it. "“Maybe parents should push strollers, like they did before?" What a concept! I'll tell you, if I had THAT stroller, I would stroll every day! Who needs a baby? I could toss out my walker and stroll in style.

Good story, and a good illustration of how we are so prone to solving the wrong problems. Thanks for not having the grisly ending I was expecting. (They were food delivery drones, after all.)
