That's Meg, from A Wrinkle in Time, whose scientist- mother cooks casseroles over her bunsen burner. Not that I do that exactly, but I have been known to get distracted by A Book whilst cooking and try to stir and read at the same time.
Less often, I'm like Laura Ingalls Wilder's Ma and stay loving and patient the whole slow and simple day.
More often than I'd care to admit, I'm in a tizz worthy of Mrs Bennet.
I'm curious - which book-mother are you ?
