five reasons not to retire from motherhood

This morning, Sophie was doing such a good job helping get ready for breakfast and looking after her little brother that I suggested that I retire and leave her in charge. She didn't think that was a good idea. Here's why:
  • I can't use the bread knife

  • or the stay-sharp knife

  • I can't solve difficult maths problems

  • I can't light the stove

  • I'm not trustworthy with jelly-beans

That's what you need mothers for!!

I'm not trustworthy with jellybeans either! Does that mean I don't have what it takes to be a mother?
