Let me tell you something that no one really covers about the early days of motherhood: Monotony. There’s a lot of it. All the changing. All the feeding. And your baby is kind of a lump with not a lot of emotional responses at first.
Of course you love them. Of course that baby is all your dreams come true. But the monotony can get to a girl. When the National Mango Board asked if I’d be interested in hosting a Jungle Book viewing party with lots of delicious mango recipes to serve, the excuse to have people who speak actual words around me was too good to pass up.
So I called up my pal Mary Kay and asked if she too would be game for an afternoon of mango consumption while we sang along to “Bear Necessities” with the kids. Luckily, she said yes, even though her kids speak actual words and are well beyond the diaper stage.
