...Cleaver that is... and I'm okay with that! With all of her glorious motherly ways.
I want to be the mom who bakes, sews and knits.
The only issue is... I don't really do any of those things well, so here's me sharing with you all my 101's.
Laugh with me or at me, I don't care. I just hope I can evolve during this process!

Speed & A Smile

How do you deal when your 3 week old is wailing away although you're doing everything to help calm her and then your toddler kicks in too?

If this were the 50's or 60's one might have taken a Dexedrine and then washed it down with a Gin & Tonic. But then one also might have put their baby down for a nap on any other occasion and walked down to Betty's for a cigarette and a drink. I'm not sure June would have done either of those things but it may be why she was always so damn chipper! Of course I'm not assuming any women did these things, I just believe everything I see on TV.

Instead, I myself, put on the kettle and never get around to having that nice warm cup of tea... until hours later when they're all finally asleep! But just the thought of having a cup of tea sometimes helps!


  1. They don't call it "mother's little helper" for nothing! Tea...I mean...of course ;)

  2. I hear ya! Random full & forgotten mugs of cold tea are a common occurrence here.


I love comments. They make me happy.
