Woe Is Mom: Autumn Edition
For your consideration, a list of things that women cannot do in the fall once they become mothers (in case there was any confusion):
- curl up by the fire with a good book
- roast marshmallows (unless the marshmallows are for her children)
- wear scarves (they take way too much time to tie)
- pick apples
- watch college football
Mothers don’t have time to “read” or “relax” regardless of season, so don’t go thinking that these are fun activities that moms don’t do in the fall but manage to make up for in the winter. Ohhh no. In the winter moms can’t drink hot chocolate, wear fuzzy robes, OR go sledding (unless it’s to clear a path for her children). Moms can’t do certain seasonal things, and that’s the way it is. Like any affliction, they deal with it every single day when they’re reminded that life became a little less awesome when they decided to become a parent.
It’s not their fault. They didn’t make the rules. It’s just what happens when you’re a fully committed mother. College football gets replaced by sports, sports, sports all day, and life gets tough. BUT, it’s all worth the sacrifice. Ah, the joys of motherhood!
