The Many Definitions of “Mommy Juice” – KinderPerfect Card Stories
Why Does Mommy Drink?
Oh wine, sweet wine, I look forward to you after another day of childhood whine from a finger-waving, hip-swaying 6-year-old princess trying to pass off a permission slip signed in crayon.
And that’s on a good day.
Other days, do I really need a reason for Chardonnay, Cabernet, or the favorite in our house, Pinot noir? I think not. Nor do you. We all deserve a full glass of “mommy juice” – whatever that means for you – and long soak in the tub.
Now if we could just get a quiet house. Absolute quiet. For just five minutes so we can enjoy both.
Mommy Juice and Daddy Juice
Life isn’t just libations for mommy. Dad’s get a drink too, right after they stay up late to do our child’s project for them. Our kids learned early on the difference between the two drinks:
- “Mommy juice” comes in a tall glass and children should be careful not to spill it.
- “Daddy juice” comes in a bottle and a well trained child will get dad a new one from the fridge.
Of course, mommy and daddy put the kids first, and keep our drinks in moderation, unless its a hilarious Mom’s Night Out, and then we might be sleeping off a hangover in the car during soccer practice.
The Other Definition of Mommy Juice
When we sent out test cards for our 400-card main game, we thought there was only one definition of mommy juice – wine. Oh how wrong we were!
We quickly received feedback that “mommy juice” could be taken many different ways. Some did think of it as booze, like we did, and others thought a little dirtier. Let’s just say that some people thought “mommy juice” was a great answer to the Cards Against Humanity question card: “What will always get you laid.”
