You are probably saying to yourself, “Lady, I’m not certain of what this stain is on my shirt, and I possibly showered like three days ago. I am definitely not feeling like a boss of anything, let alone motherhood.” And, then you probably laughed and laughed.

5 Reasons Your Wife Needs To Go To Starbucks…Alone

Hey there guys! I want to speak to you for just a few minutes…it won’t take long, I promise. 😉

So, we know that you do so much for us! You work hard, are a fantastic daddy to our littles, help with fixing things around the house, and are the bestest child wranglers EVER!

We appreciate all that you do for our family, and how much love you give to us every day.

I want you to take a minute and think about your lovely wife. Think about everything she does for you, and your family. Let that sink in for a minute.

She cooks the meals, tries her best to keep up with the never-ending housework, runs the errands so that no one starves, changes diapers, potty trains, takes the kiddos to all of their activities…the list could go on forever.

She is pretty amazing right?!?

Now let me ask you another question. When is the last time you were alone?

Was it a few minutes ago when you were in your car? Or perhaps in your office at work? Did you enjoy a leisurely lunch, and were able to catch up on the latest events?

Would you like to know the last time your wife was alone? The day before she went into labor with your first child. Okay that may be a slight exaggeration, but trust me the alone moments are few and far between.

Your wife needs a serious BREAK, and you are just the person to help her get one! And because you are so awesome I know that you will happily do this.

So give mama a break, and help her get her Starbucks on…ALONE!

In case you are hesitating, and wondering why, here are 5 reasons:

She needs to rock out in her car!

Do you know the last time your wife got to just belt it out, and listen to whatever music she wanted to? Yep, neither does she. 😉

There are only so many nursery rhymes we can sing, sibling bickering that needs to be resolved, and snacks and sippy cups that can be tossed at our heads before we are seriously going to go cray cray!

Help us to have the opportunity to channel our inner Beyonce, and rock it like the fierce messy bun mamas that we are! Her soul will thank you.

She needs a breather!

There aren’t any real breaks in #Momhood. I mean seriously guys, they will find us…EV.ER.Y.TIME!

Bathroom? Nope they are in there with us. Shower? Laughable, my toddler just climbs in with me, and fully clothed I might add. Your wife may be able to sneak into the closet, but that will only last a few minutes at best.

We need a moment to just catch our breath, without having anyone asking  us for anything…other than our order of course! 😉

She needs her caffeine!

Guys, we have had a very long day and are beyond exhausted!

There is just something super special about those magical concoctions from Starbucks. I honestly believe they have special ingredients in their drinks that give us mommy superpowers.

It will help you!

This may sound a little crazy, but guys helping your wife to achieve fully caffeinated status alone will score you a ton of cool points!

I assure you, when she arrives back home, she will be recharged and refreshed. A teeny tiny vacay from being a mommy absolutely revitalizes us!

Assisting your wife with regular breaks will only strengthen your marriage! It’s a win win for everybody. 🙂

She deserves it!

She has been knee deep in poopy diapers all day. She has cleaned up the same room 27 times today. She has washed 15 cups, because children have yet to figure out that they can in fact reuse the same cup. She doesn’t even remember the last time she had a full on leisurely shower.

Guess what? She does this all day, everyday, and happily I might add. She does this because she loves you and your family, AND because she is AMAZING!

So guys, do yourself a favor. Once you get home, tell that woman you adore to get the heck out of dodge and go enjoy some Starbucks…alone!

She will absolutely adore you for it!

You may have seen the hilarious video of the lovely ladies at imomsohard showing the horrific bathing suit options for moms. If you haven’t, do yourself a favor and go watch it now…don’t worry I’ll wait.

Okay, this video seriously had me laughing so hard I was crying!

I agree with ev.er.y.th.ing in this video!

Let me say, if you can sport that string bikini, or side cut outs…please do! But, this mama CANNOT!

I am a big believer in loving the body you are in, and setting a good example for my children.

Me not loving my thighs IS NOT going to keep me from splashing in the water with my kiddos! Trust me, they aren’t going to remember my not so perfect body, but will remember the fun we had as a family. 🙂

With that being said, I still want some cute, fun, and practical bathing suit options. I mean I may have two rambunctious children, who have added very heavy bags under my eyes, and I am a total hot mess express 99% of the time, BUT I can still work it with the best of them!

I thought I would share with you some of my top picks to rock that bathing suit this summer!

I absolutely love this Bathing Beauty One Piece, do you?

If you are into sporting a two piece, I think this suit is amazing!

The Busy Mom’s Guide to Excercise

Hello my darlings!

Winter Break is officially over…I hope everyone survived! We had quite a whirlwind around here. Our family and friends came to visit through out the entire break, and I have to say it was absolutely amazing!

When we moved I didn’t realize how incredibly difficult it would be to relocate to a place where we had no family or friends. An extended visit with those we love is always treasured!

With all of that being said this mommy was ready for the kiddos to get back to school…I mean like NOW!!!

Teaching our Kiddos Responsibility

Our oldest child has recently asked for an allowance. Honestly, when he first approached me with this, I was dumb founded. This is mostly because when I refer to him as being the oldest, he is a grand total of 6 years old. I mean, what 6 year old is walking around thinking that they should receive an allowance?

We have always expected certain behaviors and actions from our kiddos, but I truly had not even pondered an actual allowance. So, I brought this new found information to my husband, and we had the great discussion. Because you know, we are #winning at this adult thing! 😉
