The Game of LIFE for Mommies
I’m sure you’ve played the board game LIFE, right? Well, today I ran across this “Day in the LIFE of a New Mom” in the back of BabyTalk magazine. It has landing spaces like “Diaper Genie needs changing,” “Babysitter is sick. Lose a turn,” and “Bouncy seat needs batteries. Pay $10.”
I thought if I were creating an actual LIFE board game for mommies I would add these landing spaces:
School picture day. Pay $45.
Join PTSA. Move ahead 2 spaces.
Forget snacks for PTSA meeting. Lose 1 turn.
Take the kids shopping for new shoes.
Kids need lunch money. Pay $30.
You burned dinner. Move back 1 space.
Time for more immunizations.
Visiting grandparents. Lose 1 turn to clean the house.
Race to get a forgotten project to school before 5th period. Get a flat tire. Lose 1 turn.
Chauffeur kids to a birthday party.
Daddy makes BBQ for dinner! Move ahead 2 spaces.
Recital fees due. Pay $125.
Help kids with homework.
Do a load of laundry.
Teething baby! Lose sleep. Lose 1 turn.
Kids complain they don’t like what you made for dinner. Move ahead 2 spaces. Why not? You deserve it.
Bath time! Lose 1 turn while you mop up the mess.
