I know so many people say this that it’s beginning to feel rather redundant, but let’s not kid ourselves here: being a mom is damn it hard work. You’re being pulled in several different directions at once and no matter how hard you try to escape, no one wants to give you a break. You’d think that moms are these superhuman creatures with five arms and eyes in the back of their heads, but sadly, that’s not the case. We’re normal functioning human beings just like everyone else in this world, even though we do have a keen sense of sniffing out an obvious white lie and juggling four things at once. Plus, coffee is our kryptonite.
But that doesn’t mean we don’t need a little time to rest, relax and recharge our batteries. In fact, with all of the work that we put in on a daily basis, we never get to take any hard-earned PTO days or call in sick. Why? Because there’s no such thing when you’re the Chief Operating Officer of your household. That’s why I’m calling on all mothers to say F It… and take that momcation you desperately need. That’s right. Pack your bags for ONE, dust off your passport, and get the hell out of there before someone realizes that the waffles you were promising them for dinner is not happening.
