First – Put on your “petticoat” and do your make-up, hair, primping routine. Stomp around the house and make sure the kids are fed and in place for whatever secret life they have when you leave. Become background scenery in your husband’s photo:
Two: Grab your helper fairy extraordinaire, give her SIX YARDS of fabric and stand still, ready to be wrapped like a sausage roll.
Three: Wrap and Tuck, Wrap and Tuck, Wrap and Tuck…. suck in the tummy and drape the extra cloth over your shoulder.
Four: NO, you are not a princess. You are a mommy pretending to be a princess and you still have to fix the damn video game when it freezes…
Five: You’re done for now…. until a few drinks later when you try your newly acquired Bollywood dance moves. Be prepared to re-tuck.
Ham it up for the camera… and your kids. They love a good show!
