Motherhood Should Come With...

Five Minute Friday, where you write as fast as you can, withoout editing , proofreading or anything. Today's title is the topic. Here goes:

Motherhood should come with a whole lot of freebies from professionals. In no particular order, the ones I'd "register" for are maid, laundress, cook for the first 5 years, massage therapists on call 24/7 . Motherhood would come with other freebies too. A lunch packer who could read my mind before waking me up to ask if I feel like packing lunches that day. most days she would leave me sleeping . Motherhood would also come with a shock absorber. I have been shocked witless too many times. Motherhood would come with a few more hands and many fewer pounds. I wish I had been given a manual on motherhood written by all the great mothers in one volume I didnt' get much out of BabyWise, written by two men who had never been mothers but were somehow experts on how to be a good mom. Things like "save energy for your husband." Well, if I had any left I would. Motherhood would come with daily reassurances that you're doing a pretty good job if you are, and not all this motherguilt. Sometimes you're doing a lousy job but most of the time we're doing the best we can.

STOP! Your turn. Link up with Lisa Jo, then see what others bloggers have to say about this topic. They will probably be refreshingly similar:).

Freebies! I didn't even think of practical motherhood freebies. So, so, so true. :)
