Mothers. Those layabout ne’er-do-wells. Always with the complaining about being “tired” and not feeling “in the mood.” Come on!! Women (especially strong righteous pioneer women) used to make their own butter, for chrissakes! And we’re not even talking about the women who used to work in kitchens of harvest golds and yellows.
Seriously. What is UP with modern mamas? If you read the likes of Silicon Valley Moms Blog, where they have the nerve to discuss the freewheeling unapologetic use of “screen” time to do things like cook dinner, shower, and read books, you’d think raising children was indentured servitude.
And you’d be RIGHT! Right? Raising kids is a tough business in a day and age when “go outside and play” might as well be “go find the freak neighbor who likes to touch little people!”
I think the mamas in the Silicon Valley have it right. Sometimes, screen time is a perfectly acceptable babysitter. Cause even mommies have to go potty once in awhile.
