One Bad Mother

Biz and Theresa face the hard question many women may find themselves needing to answer around the holidays: “Am I supposed to want a vacuum for Christmas?” Gift circulars that advertise gifts for the whole family suggest that kids want toys, dad needs a new television or gaming console to escape the noise, and then there is a picture of a vacuum. Now, who could that be for? Are we supposed to only want gifts that can support the family in a practical way? Similarly to how we feel paralyzed on the rare occasion that we have free time, moms can find it equally hard to know what to ask for in terms of a gift we might really like that is solely for us. Despite what commercials might say, it’s probably not a vacuum…whatever “vacuum” means to you. Plus, Biz and Theresa can’t remember anything and think maybe it’s a good sign!
