Win admiration in five simple steps

Win the admiration of your child classmate mothers in five simple steps:

1.  Make an appointment in the weekend with your child classmate. Better with more than one child (in ordered to maximize the admiration factor).

2.  Make sure that it’s going to be the cloudiest, stormy, rainy day of the week, and you are at stuck at home with a few six years old girls and a baby.

3.  After pulling hairs, sit and read all mails you never look at on regular days.

4. Find the  golden newsletter, you normally don’t look at: cooking workshop for children with super title: “Yakki vegetables: carrot” (Getverderrie Groente: de Wortel)  taking place in a children book shop (!) in your neighborhood.

5. After all been finished, sit at home and enjoy the admiration of the (lovely) mothers…;-)

    You have my admiration too!
    When I’ve survived a day with more than four kids including baby’s -which happens quite often I must say- I always think I’m worthy of the tiltle supermom 😉 and these days compensate for all the days when I think: Oh my sweet lord, can someone please come and collect these children and take them to a nice bookshop so I can just sit and read a little, just for 5 minutes..

  6. Dear Paulien…thanks…:-) Exactly!!!! And especially at the end of the day when they all tired…than I’m shifting myself to a parallel quiet universe of my own…;-)
