Halloween Edition: Ways to Scare the Crap out of a Working Mom
November 1st, 2012, posted by Aimee
With all the sad and scary news in the world right now, it seemed like a good time to lighten it up. Plus, it’s Halloween, and it seemed natural to start thinking about all the things that really scare the living daylights out of us working moms. Hint: It’s not zombies, ghosts or ghouls.
So what is the easiest way to cause a Womo panic attack? Try a few of these …
o Remind her of the “No store-bought costumes, homemade only” rule at her kids’ school Halloween parade
o Tell her a new study came out showing white wine has double the amount of calories and carbs than previously known.
o Sign her up to bake cookies or (worse) build a scarecrow/mission/erupting volcano for her child’s annual fundraiser
o Announce that Trader Joe’s recalled all of its frozen meals due to a Salmonella scare.
o Send an Outlook invitation for a critical client meeting for 5 p.m. on October 31st.
o Tell her she’s pregnant again … with twins!
