N is to Never (ever)
Oh those things we vowed we’d never, ever do once we were mothers…We were teenagers screaming into our pillows late at night after our own mothers committed some egregious act (second-degree interrogation of new boyfriend, orders to wash off all that mascara before leaving for school…the usual crimes).
And now, here we are, mothers ourselves, committing our own set of egregious acts. Or at least things we’d never dreamed of doing, like whipping up a box of that neon orange mac ‘n’ cheese. Like random acts of invasion of privacy. Maybe time to revisit our teenage vows?
Read about what a mother (me) vowed not to do — oops – and what a daughter (yes, my teenage werewolf) swears, swears, swears she won’t do if and when she comes a mother. Our new post, N is for Never, is up at mom.me. Take a look. Comments encouraged!!
