Yesterday I burnt 2 fingers when I went to move the pot of rice I was making (and by making, I mean following the instruction on the bag of rice. you didn’t know it came with directions did you?).
“Well, why didn’t you use pot holders, Sophia’s Mom?” you must be asking yourself. The answer is simple (and stupid)… I don’t own any.
I don’t know how to cook, nor have I made many attempts at learning how to. I don’t have the appropriate utensils, I don’t own a cook book, I don’t understand the terminology… You get my point!
Now, I have a husband I can’t cook for and a baby (toddler, really) that eats the same flavorless foods everyweek.
And that is just the tip of the gigantic undomesticated iceberg that is my life!
My mother is blissfully undomestic. She doesn’t clean, sew, cook, bake or partake in any other activity that would be categorized as ‘domestic.’ Mom, I know you are reading this but I am hoping your English comprehension (or lack thereof) don’t fully allow you to understand what I am trying to say. To put it nicely, she can’t even fry an egg… I have photographic evidence. But that’s neither here nor there. Maybe I’m just looking for someone to blame. But that’s material for another post.
Ok. Where were we?
Ah, yes! Sophia’s Mom = Lame Undomestic Burnt Fingers Diva Mommy
So after 4 years of marriage and 14 months of mommyhood under my belt you would think that I would have this down or at least somewhat down. But no. You wanna know why? I. Dont. Want. To.
Yes, I admit it. I don’t want to! I have not tried to learn how to do anything domestic. The only thing I can sew is a button and I want to keep it that way because once I learn how to do anything else, there come the requests.‘Honey, can you hem these pants?… Honey, can you fix this tear?‘ I’m not gonna do it. And if I do, it’s probably gonna take me like 3 weeks to get to it because I have other things on my plate like taking care of a baby, blogging, watching Grey’s Anatomy… The list is endless!
Let’s face it. Ignorance is bliss. That ain’t no lie. And why would I want to give that up? Although, I have to admit that since my super awesome babysitter left (you can read my sob story here) I’ve had to take one for the team and get creative with Sophia’s menu.
But she’s the only one I’m cooking for. I mean it! (You heard that, Sophia’s Dad!)
Don’t look at me if you’re hungry ’cause the only thing you are getting is take-out or flan (the only think I can make from scratch and without a recipe).
So, to wrap this up. I want to know if any of you proudly claim ignorance (or at least lie and claim ignorance to get out of doing something) about something.
Share with me. I can’t be the only one… Or am I?
