Reblogged from the Reluctant Mom because it’s simply one of the best pieces of writing I’ve come across in ages. It made me laugh, it made me nod my head in agreement and it reminded me of why I avoid the “holier than thou” Mom’s!
A show aired on a talk show hosted by Katie Courie – I caught it on youtube.
I do not know Katie Courie, after the show I do not think she is someone I would want to watch.
The focus of the show I saw, was Mommies who admit to needing a swig of wine to get through the day – she had Marile Borden who is a mom of two who organized a Facebook page called, Moms Who need Wine! on and what started as a discussion degenerated into a judgement exercise.
These are not moms who are having a glass at 7am to get through the school run, but Moms who are having drinks at a playgroup (crikey holy, I would go to more play dates if there was wine on offer – it would also help me mask out the drone of the mom who was boasting about how fantastic Junior was or how Miss had managed to win yet another Cello solo …. I cannot bear it!!) or are having wine whilst they make dinner.
The horror!! The shame!!
You can read the rest of this hysterical and so very true piece here: Mommy’s Little Helper…
Oh and cheers!
Wine sponsors welcome! *nudge nudge wink wink*
