Box-o-Wine to the Rescue!

I have had a few people get knocked up lately and ask me, "What is the one item you couldn't live without as a parent?"

I though about all of the awesome crap I used when the kids were babies and all of the plastic junk I loved when they got older. But then it dawned on me.

Without a doubt, this has been the most useful thing to me as a parent:

Mommy's Little Helper

For only $10 a box, it is happiness at an amazing price. And that shit is imported, yo. FANCY!

It may not be something I use on the kids, but it sure as snickers makes me a better mom in the long-run.


How, you ask?

Home all day with a colicky baby that won't stop crying no matter what you do? Box-o-wine to the rescue.

Finally got time to take a shower AND put on make-up only to have the cat throw up in your shoes? The Box has your back.

Toddler spent the day giving you the Spanish Inquisition of "Whys"? Drink the "Whys" away.

Had the day from hell where everyone from your boss to the baby has yelled at you? Boxie is there for you.


Now do I get drunk in front of my kids? Of-fucking-course-not. But I most definitely pour myself a glass of the incredibly cheap and trashy good stuff when I get home from a day that made me want to punch a kitten. Better I drink a glass of wine to relax than to take my bad day out on my kids.

So what about you, mamas? What is your "mommy's little helper"? Kittens? Chocolate? Tequila?
