Q: Queen

Are you the Queen of your castle? You should be. The answer is, Yes you are!

It's Q day, and I want to celebrate all the housewives out there - women married to their families, no matter the status, even single women who take care of their homes. This blog is for us all! And here is my salutatory poem for you!

The Queen of the House

The caregiver, the meal maker, the mess cleaner,
The grime gouger, the organizer, the bill payer,
The homework helper, the etiquette exampler, the punishment doler,
The primary diaper changer, the boo-boo kisser,
The frantic worrier, the tough-love sufferer, the chore distributor,
The praise extoller, the great embarrasser, the proud crower,
The never-enough-hugger, the number one encourager, the safety-net holder,
The best face-(speaks-louder-than-words)-maker,
The last resort picker-upper, the insect warrior, the menace protector,
The dog walker, the main driver, the overtime-practice waiter,
The healthy talker, the outside sender, the video-time monitor,
The school lunch preparer, the deal no-taker, the excuse disclaimer,
The dress code enforcer, the problem fixer, the wrong-done denouncer,
The tear wiper, the silent bystander, the when-necessary blame taker,
The self-sacrificer, the last-in-line taker, the first defender,
The love bestower, the kind-but-firm discipliner, the reassurer,
The nest nudger, the advice distributor, the final decider,
The go-to, smartest-in-the-land, all-knowing, all-seeing, making-magic-happen

Every woman out there is the Queen of the House - and we deserve the utmost respect! Here at the RRHA, our goal is to help each other be the best Queens of the House we can be!

I bet you could add something to the list and I'd love to hear it!

  1. I'm celebrating my mother, who most definitely wears all the titles mentioned in your poem. Queen of the castle indeed!

  2. I regularly remind my family that I'm the queen of the castle.

  3. I'm not sure I'm the queen in my household - chief cook and bottle washer maybe? LOL

    1. an empty nester is a queen matriarch! its your time now!

  7. I recently read Accidental Empress. One underlying theme was that being queen is sometimes not all it's cracked up to be :)

    1. this is true, all the more readon our hard work deserves respect!

  8. I don't fit a lot of those ideas unfortunately. Just hubby and I.

  9. You know what, I'm ready to give up the crown. I want to be KING. The one who can ignore all else and never ever feel guilty for it! LOL
