As a mom, I am constantly thinking about how much I NEED my mom friends.
I called one up this afternoon and we each took a minute to share the day’s trials (like how one child has now decided that taking off his diaper and painting a carpeted room with his poo is perfectly acceptable and other child is having some trouble in school) and simply lament together how hard this whole mom thing is!
It was completely therapeutic. She oohed and ahhed over just the right things and she affirmed me with these 5 powerful words:
“You are an awesome mom.”
By the end of the conversation I wanted to reach through to the other side of the phone and give my friend a giant hug.
Doesn’t it feel good to hear that little bit of encouragement when you are in the mommyhood trenches?
Doesn’t it feel good to be noticed?
Well, here is an easy way to give the gift of hope and life to a mom in your world who is roughing it with poo and meal-planning and budgeting and diapering.
Next, drop it off on a mom’s doorstep for an extra special Fall-themed surprise.
And that’s all there is to it!
Happy Special Mum-ing! :-)
