The Fun Mom

THIS PIECE ORIGINALLY RAN LAST JUNE. NOW THAT SUMMER BREAK IS UPON US, I'M RUNNING IT AGAIN SINCE WE CAN ALL USE A REMINDER TO LIGHTEN UP AND ENJOY THE RIDE.


Around here, Mom gets a bum rap. Dad is the fun one, doing all the tickling and wrestling and ball-throwing in the house. I’m that shadow in the background sweeping up the shards of the vase they just knocked over.

I even call my husband ‘Daddy Funtime,’ sneering as I say this to fully articulate that this is meant to be a negative connotation.
