Desperate Working Mommas
Your one-stop site for fanatical television snarking, questionable political analysis, occasional attempts to address the parenting issues facing working mothers, and halfhearted promises to stop obsessing about the entertainment industry, already! Oh, not to mention the random bitching and moaning. There's always that.

The Snot Heard 'Round the World

I love my kids. They are my life. I love them more than anyone or anything in this world. Including New York Super Fudge Chunk Ben & Jerry's ice cream. And pumpkin-spice cake donuts. Even more than Joan of Arcadia. Yes. I love them THAT much.

But no one, and I mean NO ONE, should be expected to respond to a sick, feverish little child who gets right in her face and coughs-- nay, HACKS UP A LITTLE LUNG-- in any way other than my way, which involves recoiling in surprised horror, wiping the spittle and mucus from my face, and bellowing-- in a nurturing, loving, and wholly instructional way, of course-- "GAH! Ew! CHILD! Cover your MOUTH!!"

Hey. I see a teaching opportunity and I take it. That's just the kind of mother I am.
