In case you haven’t noticed, this blog name is kind of a joke. No one is perfect. The point is that we are all on the road to being the best woman we can be- whoever she is. TPH is here to make that road a little easier.
A while back my online friends and I came up with this obnoxious list of what makes a “perfect” housewife. I’m posting this to get you to roll your eyes at how ridiculous it is. Try to remember that we should all try to be the best we can be for US, not just because that’s what society or our mother-in-laws say we should be.
