Mystery #2: Why do mothers always get stuck doing the cooking during the holidays or for family gatherings? Shouldn't they take a day off?
Because if YOU are cooking, someone ELSE is entertaining your kids while you do so. BOOM. 🙌🏻 This buys you at least an hour, maybe more if you also offer to do the dishes. ;)
Wisdom #2: Offer to cook. It's basically a mini-vacation. 🌴🍹
Mystery #3: Why do mothers seem to develop an addiction to caffeine, even if they never had one before joining The Motherhood?
Because, dear reader, it is the nectar of life. ☕️ With coffee in your veins, that spilled jar of glitter doesn't seem so spilled, the pee pee accident doesn't seem quite as gross, and the 37th request for a Veggie Tales video doesn't grate on your eardrums quite as much. Post-coffee-consumption, lists get made, laundry gets laundered, homes remain semi-clean-ish, and the afternoon couch crash is kept at bay. In our house, Mommy is WAY more fun and sing-song-y and ready for dance parties once her blessed almond milk mocha with caramel has been downed. We call it Mommy's Medicine. Indeed. 🙌🏻 The best of medicines. (You can trust me. I'm married to a pharmacist.) 😉
Wisdom #3: Coffee. It's what's for breakfast...and lunch...and maybe even for an afternoon 'snack,' you know, depending on the day. 😉
