I was warned about how much driving I would do as a stay-at-home mom. I see the vans with the Mom Taxi bumper sticker or the little army of stick people and I raise my fist in a somber salute as I pass them in the carpool line. I knew that “chauffeur” was in the job description. What I DIDN’T know about were the other jobs encompassed under that heading, all to be accomplished while operating a motor vehicle and, you know, trying not to commit vehicular manslaughter.
The Many Jobs of a Mom Behind the Wheel:
1. DJ Mamamatic
Between my two Frozen-obsessed girls, my superhero theme song loving dude, and my own desire to listen to something sung by an adult for adults occasionally, I feel like I am trying to create the world’s most epic (and schizophrenic) playlist. Thank goodness for Spotify; sometimes Mamamatic just lets shuffle take over, kids.
