Tonawanda News — We have become, ironically through civilizing influences, as all-purpose as those westward-ho pioneers we allegedly admire. Yes, we often “call the guy” to fix whatever’s gone wrong, yet we have the wherewithal to learn, then apply, whatever we think we need to learn.
The cap of my beer is off to you, 21st century Ken-Ton mom with kids and a minivan. Damn, you’re resourceful, even if motherhood, even if life, is a zero-sum game. You hear things like “I don’t know how she does it” and run with like-minded people who baffle those of us who don’t know how they do it.
They do it because they can, because they live in an expansive world and have honed their practice of getting around obstacles. Loading the hours of the day is their standard practice, and the sooner we non-moms learn some of these techniques the better we will be.
