Insanity of Motherhood

Motherhood, marriage, and midlife.

Helping Out


A conversation between a husband and a wife.

Sweetie, what are you doing?” – Husband

“Trying to put shelf liner on the pantry shelves.” – Wife

“Why are you using scissors to trim the liner.” – Husband

“I don’t know.  I thought using scissors was the way to trim it.” – Wife

“No.  You need a razor blade.  I will get one for you.” –  Husband

Husband leaves and comes back with a razor blade.

Here, try this.  It will go a lot faster if you use the blade.” – Husband

“I don’t like using the razor.  It make me nervous.” – Wife

“Here let me show you how to do it.  It is easy.  Nothing to be nervous about.” – Husband

Wife watches husband trim shelf liner with blade.

Looks nice.  But, I am still nervous about using the blade.” – Wife

“I will do it then.  It will take too long to use the scissors.” – Husband

“Oh, thank you, Honey.” – Wife

Wife walks away.  Husband finishes putting on shelf liner in pantry.
