One of my favorite exchanges from SITC 2 is the scene between sweet, Charlotte (my favorite) and irascible, Miranda. Charlotte wasn't concerned about having a nanny, until promiscuous, Samantha put a bee in her bonnet. Charlotte has two kiddies, a nanny, and is overwhelmed. While in Abu Dhabi she and Miranda have a heart-to-heart.
Miranda: "Being a mother kicks your a**."
Charlotte: "My first thought when I heard Samantha say Harry might cheat on me with Erin was, "Oh my god, I can't lose the nanny!""
Charlotte: "How do the moms who have no help do it?"
Miranda: "I have no f***ing idea."
*giggle* *snort* *chortle*
I love that scene.
So for you mothers out there - even those of you who get your panties in a knot because you're so concerned with how everyone else is living their lives... if you don't have help - BRAVO. The women with endless resources and nannies for their 1.5 kids - have no effing idea how you do it. I gather, sometimes you, and I don't either. hehehehehe
