Please tell me it’s like this at your house. Is there an unwritten list of actions or projects or chores that no one else will do and, if it weren’t for Mom, they wouldn’t get done at all?
I’m talking about small, everyday tasks that, apparently, when other members of the household are confronted with them, their brains seize into states of paralytic inaction. If all moms everywhere took a week off, I envision houses across the country overwhelmed with junk mail and leftovers, full voicemail inboxes and no milk.
What follows is a random list of my favorite Mom-tasks that I love to hate. Tasks that, with only minor exceptions under extreme circumstances, only I can do.
