I loved this, sounds a bit like my life, and I am sure will resonate with many mothers!
THE NEXT SURVIVOR SERIES:
Six married men will be dropped on an island with one car and 3 kids each for six weeks.
Each kid will play two sports and take either music or dance classes.
There is no fast food.
Each man must take care of his 3 kids;
keep his assigned house clean,
correct all homework,
complete science projects,
and pay a list of ‘pretend’ bills
with not enough money.
will have to budget enough money
for groceries each week.
must remember the birthdays
of all their friends and relatives,
and send cards out on time–no emailing.
Each man must also take each child
to a doctor’s appointment,
a dentist appointment
and a haircut appointment.
He must make one unscheduled and
inconvenient visit per child to the Emergency Room.
He must also make cookies or cupcakes for a school function.
Each man will be responsible for decorating his own assigned house, planting flowers outside, and keeping it presentable at all times.
The men will only have access to television when the kids are asleep and all chores are done.
The men must shave theirlegs,
wear makeup daily,
adorn themselves with jewelry,
wear uncomfortable yet stylish shoes,
keep fingernails polished,
and eyebrows groomed
During one of the six weeks,
the men will have to endure severe
abdominal cramps, backaches, headaches,
have extreme, unexplained mood swings
but never once complain or slow down
from other duties.
They must attend weekly school meetings and church, and find time at least once to spend the afternoon at the park or a similarsetting.
They will need to read a book to the kids eachnight
and in the morning,
brush their teeth and
comb their hair
by 7:30 am.
A test will be given at the end of the six weeks, and each father will be required to know all of the following information:
shoe size, clothes size,
the child’s weight at birth,
length, time of birth,
and length of labor,
each child’s favorite color,
and what they want to be when they grow up.
The kids vote them off the island based on performance.
The last man wins only if…he still has enough energy to be intimate with his spouse at a moment’s notice.
If the last man does win, he can play the game over and over and over again for the next 18-25 years, eventually earning the rightto be called Mother!
