That’s right, the author of some of our favorite childhood stories would have been 102 years old today! So in honor of his birthday, I’ll share some parenting motivation from the always loved and ever-wise Willy Wonka.
Yes, work is important. Of course motherhood is hard (my kid chews wires and tried to play with her own turds in the tub the other day, for Christ’s sake)! But when you’re at your most exhausted and at the end of your rope, you need to remember: embrace the chaos and enjoy the silly. In the end, the nonsense and the memories that come from it are what make this whole mommy thing worthwhile (and at the very least will provide you with some future blackmail material!)
