Many times on Mommy Mondays, I whine about the parts of motherhood that aren’t that glamorous: spit up on my shirt, engorged boobs, and blowout diapers. But today, I’m thinking more positive.
Today I’m going to list some of the kick-a perks about being a mom that you may not have though of!
Even if you’re doing low-carb, Paleo, flexitarian, or whatever, you can totally steal sips of your kid’s Nesquick with FULL FAT milk before handing it over to them. Seriously, this has been one of my favorite things to do in the mornings. That chocolate milk is the bomb!
You have a legit reason to not go anywhere.
You also have a legit reason to have a girl’s night.
The pantry can be stocked with animal crackers and applesauce pouches and people think they’re for the kid…when they’re really for you.
You can totally look like a BAMF in front of non-mommy friends when you describe your birthing story (because, let’s face it, whether that kid came out of Lady Town or was cut out of your belly, you’re a BAMF).
You can say what everyone else is thinking and no one can get offended because you can “blame it on the hormones”.
But, the best perk is having a little piece of you and your honey running around that you can impart wisdom.
