What do mothers do?

My children made it clear that they really cared very much that I sat and watched TV with them this afternoon. Afterwards I ordered a book from La Leche League What Do Mothers Do: especially when it looks like nothing. I'm hoping it'll justify the still bagged groceries and riot of laundry. Fortunately Sean's feeling warmly towards me, credit built up by my past self as he's been reading old love letters.

Letters I wrote about a decade ago when I'd finished an MA and was trying to work out what I wanted to do next. Somehow this has led him to the plan that we should own The Northland Cafe, Games Club and Climbing Wall (with quilt afternoons) when we grow up. He says the problem would be not losing money. I suspect that losing money is a given and the problem would be having enough fun while doing so. I've heard that snorting coke is like burning $100 bills while sandpapering the inside of your nose and a yacht is a hole in the water you pour money into but not from people who are having fun doing the coke or floating the boat.
