Happy Momma

“If momma ain’t happy ain’t nobody happy.”

This quote is so popular you can even buy T-shirts and mugs for the moms in your life with this sentiment emblazoned on it. It’s a quote to chuckle at – yet I read something selfish in it. Do you? It’s as if the line is proudly encouraging you to spread your bad mood to your loved ones to get them to behave to your liking. If my kids and husband are happy, then I’m happy too. Of course, I might even be happy anyway… but the point is I value peace and harmony. But maybe that doesn’t make a good T-shirt…
