Her’s Day Thursday

hersday thursday4

 

This weekend is Mother’s Day and, even though I touched on it during my Monday blog, I want to say again how great moms are. Whether you’re a stay-at-home mom wiping noses/butts/hands all day, a working mom who juggles car pools and staff meetings, a stepmom that is searching for her place in her new bonus kids’ lives, an older mom looking around at her empty nest, or an aunt that loves her nieces and nephews as though they’re her own, I salute you. You do the grunt work: the kissing the boo-boo’s, the driving to and from school events and practices, the searching your kid’s head for lice, cutting crusts off bread, wiping tears from your teen’s face (and holding back your own) because of something that happened at school, and countless other tasks that may seem menial, but to those you are serving it means the world.

This weekend, sit down, put your feet up, and get pampered! You deserve it! And, on the off chance you’re able to go to the bathroom alone, watch this hilarious video and try to smile at the beautiful chaos that surrounds you!

Her’s Day Thursday

Her's Day Thursday3

 

Today’s Her’s Day Thursday BAMF is not just one woman, but many: mothers everywhere. 

The stay-at-home mom who home-schools her kids and needs a break from being Mommy AND teacher. The working mom that drops her kids off at daycare and wishes she could stay home. The mom with little ones, bleary-eyed and covered in spit up. The mom with pre-teens and teens, navigating a world of hormones and eye-rolls. The mom helping her baby pack up his room for college and wondering what she’ll do with an empty nest. The mom who has now become Grandma and is helping her child walk through this wilderness we call motherhood. I salute you. Happy {early} Mother’s Day.
