Special Mom to Mom Comic Strip: A Mother's Serenity Prayer

This comic strip was included in a special insert inside the Bergen News today. 

God grant me the serenity to accept the fact that there will always be another load of laundry

Courage to assist the dog’s evacuation process because both egg rolls and Polly Pocket are Chinese food to her

And the wisdom to know that my house will never, ever be as neat and clean as my mother’s. 


Help me to live one late payment at a time

Accept playdates as my ticket to heaven

Take motrin according to the dosage directions and not as I would have it—every half-hour

Trust that if I surrender to my inner screaming-mimi to get the kids in bed before midnight


A martini will make all things right


And may I be reasonably happy with a vodka martini if the bottle of Gin has kicked.
