Conversation with Bianca early this morning.
Bianca: "I can't be bothered to cook. I'm a bad mother."
Essie: "You're not a bad mother. You're a lazy mother. My mom used to say that if your kid can make it to kindergarten without a pen leg, you've done a pretty good job."
I must add though, as a disclaimer, than as a child I regularly ate glue. And also, the teachers thought I was retarded at one stage. But I made it to age twenty-sev...two...without any major damage, so kudos.
