The Mommy Survial Box
by: Dawn Dais
It takes a lot to make it through the day as a mom. Your day begins with you blindly searching your kitchen for all things caffeine, and it ends when you faceplant into your pillow 14 seconds after you’ve wrestled your children into anything resembling a sleeping position. To celebrate moms and all the wonders that come along with raising the next generation I’ve put together a handy box that can make the days a little brighter.
Kids are loud. All the time. Except for when they are doing something they shouldn't be doing. So how is Mommy supposed to get a nap?
UNDER EYE CREAM
We are all aging at an alarming clip since becoming parents. Our poor eyes are the hardest hit (besides our souls).
Have I mentioned we are tired? I’m not sure what this thing is, or how it works without suffocating the napper, but I would like to investigate further.
CHOCOLATE. ALL THE CHOCOLATE
Yes, hiding in the pantry raiding your kids’ Halloween candy is considered “Me Time.”
You would work out, but snacking is so much more rewarding.
COFFEE. ALL THE COFFEE.
Never. Too. Much. Caffeine.
WINE. ALL THE WINE.
Shhhhh, Mommy needs her medicine.
It’s never a bad idea to treat yo’self.
Kids smell. Plan accordingly.
AND OF COURSE, ADD IN YOUR OWN MOM PANTS
Go get 'em ladies!
