Insanity of Motherhood

Motherhood, marriage, and midlife.



A conversation between a wife and a husband.

“Honey, painting the house seems to be taking a lot longer than you thought it would huh?” – Wife

“Well, the ceilings needed two coats of primer and paint.  It has gone a lot slower than I would like.”- Husband

“I was thinking we should hire someone to put in all the baseboards.  You know a real professional.”- Wife

“What?  No way.  My dad just gave me a training and loaned me all the tools to do the job.  I love doing this kind of stuff.” – Husband

But it could take months before all the painting and baseboards are done.” – Wife

“No worries.  We will get it done someday.” – Husband (Big Smile)

Wife walks away and begins to put baseboards in huge pile in the backyard.  Wife lights baseboards.  Huge flames soar.  Wife stares at fire and smiles.

English: Lag BaOmer bonfire

“Honey.  Honey, can you hear me?” – Husband

Wife looks at husband.

“Sorry Sweetie.  I was just daydreaming.” – Wife
