The Phrase “Working Mother” is Redundant…

SAHM craziness


I found this perfectly funny little story on Facebook today – it came from my very favorite Scentsy rep – Lucinda Faragher. {Love Scentsy? Check her out – She is the so amazingly helpful, love her. Anyway – I think all of you will totally relate to this too. And after the crazy-stressful-awful week I’ve just been through with my website getting hacked, I am in need of some good laughs! If you’ve got a funny post to share – leave me some comments. Totally need to read some humor today!

Life in the Motherhood…

A man came home from work and found his 3 children outside, still in their pyjamas, playing in the mud, with empty food boxes and wrappers strewn around the yard. The door of his wife’s car was open, as was the front door to the house – and no sign of the dog. Walking in the door, he found an even bigger mess. A lamp had been knocked over, the throw rug was against one wall, in the front room the TV was on loudly with the cartoon channel, the family room was strewn with toys and various items of clothing. In the kitchen, dishes filled the sink, breakfast food was spilled on the counter, the fridge door was open wide, dog food was spilled on the floor, a broken glass lay under the table, and a small pile of sand was spread by the back door. He quickly headed up the stairs, stepping over toys and more piles of clothes, looking for his wife.

He was worried she might be ill, or that something serious had happened.

He was met with a small trickle of water as it made its way out the bathroom door. As he peered inside he found wet towels, scummy soap and more toys strewn over the floor. Miles of toilet paper lay in a heap and toothpaste had been smeared over the mirror and walls. As he rushed to the bedroom, he found his wife curled up in the bed in her pajamas, reading a novel… She looked up at him, smiled and asked how his day went. He looked at her bewildered and asked, ‘What happened here today?’ She again smiled and answered, ‘You know every day when you come home from work and you ask me what in the world do I do all day?… ”Yes,” was his incredulous reply..

She answered, ‘Well, today I didn’t do it.’

Right?? Love it. So true. And if you are an over-worked mom that appreciates a bit of “mommy humor” – check out my board devoted to it on Pinterest. It’s one of my favorites.
