School starts next week for the kids and tomorrow for me. My inbox is teeming with all things back to school. PTA committee meetings are stacking up. My color coded calendar looks like a rainbow as I keep adding in the kid's activities. Plus, I better finish the back to school shopping and find the supply lists for class. And, those school emergency forms sure won't complete themselves in triplicate.
What did I do today? It was my last day to get all these things done. I said forget it (or maybe another word starting with f)! Instead, I went to the movies and saw Bad Moms. I laughed, and laughed, and laughed. I haven't gone to a movie in the middle of the workweek - EVER!!! Every mom can relate to at least part of this story. We are all bad moms!!! We are all great moms, too!!!
Yes, we do helicopter and sanitize ourselves right into a tizzy. What if my kid doesn't get the teacher he wants? What if my kid doesn't make the team? What if my kid doesn't get elected to student government? What if? What if? What if?
Yes, we also love our kids beyond words. We would walk through fire. We would dance with the devil. We do just about anything to make sure our kids are safe.
Moms, school season is about to begin. Put on your tackle pads, because parenting these days is a full-contact sport. Together, let's all strive to be bad moms some days, because most days we are all really great moms! Let the school games begin!
That is life in MomZania.
