Cardboard Mama

Three days and two nights away from my little family.  I was out of cell phone range, far away from home and working hard.  I woke up on the hour, wondering how Marguerite was managing her first night without me. 

What I didn't know is that in my absence a very important woman appeared to take care of everyone.  Surely I would have rested easier if I'd known she was there.

Enter Cardboard Mama, imaginatively constructed by Genevieve. 

She cooked.

She put Marguerite down for her nap.

She grocery shopped and ran errands.

She kept up on the laundry.

She worked in the garden.

She enjoyed a glass of wine on the deck.

She read the girls their bedtime story.

She (ahem) took care of business with Daddy.

Cardboard Mama, we wouldn't have made it without you.
