I Love Lucy Too In the classic show “I Love Lucy”, Lucy Ricardo was the title character that everyone adored. While she was a housewife and later, a mother, Lucy was also a humorous character that naively believed she would be in show business and become a star.

Lucy is always getting into shenanigans, dragging her friends and husband into the mess as well, and the message the show sent was to avoid being like her. Though the show is well-loved and surprisingly modern for the time it aired, Lucy Ricardo is still seen as someone an everyday 1950’s housewife should not aspire to be.

Kathy accurately describes her mixed feelings of motherhood as “so happy…so afraid…that the baby will…be taken away from her” (70). Here, Kathy brings her own experience into this interpretation. Always knowing subconsciously that she is infertile, she reimagines herself as the childless mother in the song and expresses her joy and fear should she have someone to love so deeply and tenderly.

I usually have a happy aura and I never really find someone who hates me.
