Mom Truths | We All Need This Kinda Mom Friend

0

It’s no secret that motherhood is HARD. You know what else is hard? Marriage. Marriage is hard. And this whole adulting thing? Hard.

The simple, monotonous life we live can be so dang hard! That’s why it’s crucial to have a mom friend to help us get through the difficult moments, days and years…

We All Need THIS Kind of Friend:

A friend who doesn’t judge you when you send a text saying your kids are for sale.

A friend who doesn’t tell everyone you’re getting divorced after you let her know you don’t like your husband right now.

A friend who doesn’t think you’re gross for sharing your highly unfortunate situation with her (hemorrhoids, heavy flow, sh*t in your pants…it happens).

A friend who comes over and you don’t have to worry that your house looks like a tornado just ripped through it.

A friend who knows you love your children and your husband even when you’re complaining about them and who suggests alone time and wine to help you survive.

That kinda friend. We all need one.

Mom Truths | Moms Through the Decades

Shoot ya’ll ! What the f*ck happened to us?

Motherhood has clearly evolved over the years, but we can’t say we’re happy about it.

Moms used to be super lenient when it came to parenting, and their children still survived (can you believe it?!). Nowadays, there’s literally nothing a mom can do right.

Never has there been such high expectations on us as moms and never has there been so much judgement.

So if it were up to us, we’d go back to the way things used to be when…

50’s Moms didn’t have to kid-proof life. Somehow children knew to use their common sense.

60’s Moms were allowed to discipline their own children AND the kids running around in the street without getting a death stare from other parents.

70’s  Moms: got together to have fun and drink martinis at 3pm, not to judge one another.

80’s Moms: weren’t pressured to prepare gourmet casseroles for the family. They just fed the kids and moved on.

90’s Moms: packed lunches full of snacks and were considered the “cool mom.”

As today’s moms, we make it so dang hard on ourselves. So let’s quit this new/crazy form of parenting and go back to the way things used to be!!

Mom Truths | Mom Shaming Stops HERE

No matter what you do as a mom, it’s not going to be right…according to women who want to tell you how it is and how to be, even though you’re trying your dang hardest!

We often talk about the challenges of motherhood, but no one ever talks about the challenges we put on each other as women and as moms.

It’s like you can never be mom enough. Someone is always going to tell you you’re doing it wrong…

If you look banging, you have low self-esteem because you spend too much time doing your makeup.

If you workout, you’re too skinny and unhealthy.

If you’ve had Botox, you’re not setting a good example for your daughter.

If you’ve completely given up and look like a disaster, you need to stop obsessing over your children and focus on yourself.

If you’re a stay-at-home mom, you need to get out of the stretchy pants and put on some real clothes.

If you’re a working mom, you don’t dedicate enough time to your kids.

We are each other’s worst critics and it NEEDS TO STOP. Instead of judging one another, we need to smile at each other, build each other up, respect each other and know that we’re all in this together.

You’re doing a GREAT job. NEVER forget that.

Mom Truths | Ways to Escape “The Hunt”

0

In every relationship, there is the hunter and the hunted (aka the prey). We may be the hunted, but over the years, we’ve found ways to escape the hunt 😜

If you do want to do it tonight, put one of our proven strategies to the test. You can thank us later!

Run the Clock: When he goes upstairs to get ready for bed, stay downstairs and start another task – clean the kitchen, prepare lunches for the next day, etc. Do literally ANYTHING, but DO NOT GO UPSTAIRS.

Trick Him with the TV: Be an amazing, selfless wife and put on whatever he wants to watch. Then head upstairs to read a book or a magazine or get lost down the social media rabbit hole. When he’s finally on his way up, make sure you’re asleep. If you’re not asleep, giiiirl, you better pretend that you are! Don’t move. Don’t breathe.

The 10 Day Period: Aunt Flow may have peaced out five days ago, but hubby doesn’t need to know that. Tell him you still have it. He’ll back off, trust.

One More Episode: Get a TV for your room and start binge-watching a television series. Always put on just one. more. episode. and hopefully he falls asleep during it 🤞

Mom Truths | The Bachelorette: Mom Edition

0

With a new season of The Bachelor starting up again, we had an epiphany. Motherhood is exactly like that dang show (minus the delicious cocktails and make out sessions).

We are the bachelor/bachelorette and our children are the contestants. Stick with us – we’ll break it down for you.

  1. A one-on-one date seems like a good idea at the time, but it always leads to issues. It’s nice to spend some quality time with someone, but once you get back to the house, all hell breaks loose and everyone is pissed at you for taking out just one of them.
  2. When you go on a group outing, someone is always crying. There is always one who feels left out and like they didn’t get enough attention. And there is always someone who finds a way to get the spotlight on them – for reasons that aren’t always good.
  3. When you get alone time, you’re often interrupted by someone storming into your room and trying to get in bed with you – naked! If you’re alone, someone will hunt you down and find you. Nothing will stop them.
  4. They’re always tattling on one another. They throw each other under the bus in hopes of getting each other in trouble. But what they don’t realize is that tattling on someone else doesn’t make them look better, it makes them look worse.
  5. On any given day, someone is creating drama just to stir the pot.
  6. There is always fighting between at least two of them and usually over the most ridiculous things.

So there you have it – the similarities are uncanny. Who knew we were living the lives of the bachelor/bachelorette every dang day?
