Because reality is funny and every mom needs a laugh, here’s what a mom’s Valentine’s Day really looks like. My GIFs to you…
5 a.m. When your kids wake up early for no reason.
7 a.m. When you’ve fed and clothed everyone but yourself.
7:15 a.m. When you finally look in the mirror.
8 a.m. When your spouse leaves for work forgetting it’s Valentine’s Day.
11 a.m. When you realize you’re covered in glitter and stickers and haven’t spoken to an adult in hours.
12:30 p.m. When you finally get everyone down for nap.
12:45 p.m. When you realize no one is going to nap.
6:00 p.m. When you can’t make yourself cook dinner and your spouse walks in with pizza and wine and chocolates from Walgreens.
7:00 p.m. When your children give you the handmade card they were working on all day as they climb into bed.
7:30 p.m. When others are fine dining and you’re on the couch with your spouse watching The Crown and eating all the chocolates.
Thanks Amanda, for letting me do a little thinking (laughing) out loud
