Mother’s little helper – the 2016 version

Remember that song by the Rolling Stones – Mother’s Little Helper?

“Kids are different today, I hear every mother say
Mother needs something today to calm her down
And though she’s not really ill, there’s a little yellow pill
She goes running for the shelter of a mother’s little helper
And it helps her on her way, gets her through her busy day.”

They were referencing a very specific drug that’s no longer in existence today. The ever famous Quaalude is what most people think of but according to┬áthe website i09 this was about a lesser known drug called┬ámeprobamate. It’s no longer around, so what does mommy need today to get by?

Cougar juice. Cougar crack. Aka Chardonnay. Big, buttery stuff, the thick yellow juice that makes parenting, cooking, watching daytime television, and nagging husbands all the better. Whether it’s from Kendall Jackson, Rombauer, or Chateau St. Jean, doesn’t matter. It’s widely available and you can use it for whatever ails you.
