Sophie Gregoire-Trudeau owes parents everywhere an explanation

Looking after small kids is no easy feat. I know that all too well. And the moms in society – and let’s be honest here, it’s still usually the women who stay home – do a lot more work 9-5 than those of us who just sit at a desk all day. It’s not all soap operas and bon-bons, that’s for sure.

Screaming kids. Barfing kids. Diapers. Endless laundry. Dirty dishes. Heck, broken dishes. Cheerios spilled everywhere, if you’re lucky. Soup spilled everywhere and in your hair on a bad day. Diapers again.

And do you get to rest while they’re napping? Hell no. You’ve got an hour to clean up to prepare for the next round.
