“When your mother asks, ‘Do you want a piece of advice?’ it is a mere formality. It doesn’t matter if you say yes or no. You’re going to get it anyway.  – Erma Bombeck

jobchartI always thought mothering would be easy. No one ever told me that a four-year-old would drop an F bomb in front of Grammy. Or that little kids put everything in their mouths and harbor unrealistic goals about consuming massive amounts of candy or digging for treasure in the kitchen trash. But that is where you find me: navigating the intersection between the mothering in my head and what happens around my house everyday.

Housewife Plus is a humor blog that documents the unpleasant, annoying, hair-raising, questionable, and imperfect parts of motherhood. You can think of me as a sort of Peggy Bundy but with flat hair and a preference for wool slippers over stilettos.

I must warn you, dear reader, that you really ought NOT take this blog too seriously. If you can’t laugh at parenthood then this blog might not be your thing. If you can handle humor then I invite you to join me and my awesome lady writer friends on Twitter @housewife_plus for more fun. You’ll be glad you did! And be sure to find me on Facebook too!
