Umm, yes I just titled my post, “Where’s my bon bon?” Seriously though, if anyone has the answer to that question, I would love to know! Over the years I have heard many descriptions of what people envision a stay at home mother does with her time. Some of these things include, but are not limited to…
Watching Soap Operas
Getting their Hair and Nails Done
….and Eating Bon Bons
The truth is…
My television is always set on the cartoon channel. As a matter of fact, I have no idea if we really even get any other channels. Why can’t they just sell us the cartoon package? That would save so much money, wouldn’t it?
Sadly I haven’t had my hair done in months and my nails…well, let’s just say they need help. I haven’t had my nails done since high school—I kid you not!
Naps, could someone please explain those to me? From what I hear they sound quite nice, and I know I’m just missing out.
And Bon Bons…If I even attempted to eat a bon bon my children would have it out of my hands and devoured so quickly I wouldn’t even know what happened. That’s right, mothers must hide the treats and wait until the kids are in bed to eat them, or they get no treats at all.
So, the next time you think about the job of a stay at home mom, just remember that she doesn’t really have time for any of those things you might think she’s at home doing.
