"Moms are like buttons - they hold everything together!"
This Mother's Day, I see you! Right now when times are feeling out of control, moms really are holding it all together. Mothers have taken on so many extra roles, and our lives look completely different than just a few months ago. I know that we are having to adapt in ways we didn't expect.
Moms Work Hard
Every mom is in a different situation right now. Whether you are an essential worker, working from home, not working because of the pandemic or a stay-at-home mom, we know you are working harder than before. Your roles have expanded to caregiver, teacher and so much more! With routines disrupted, it can feel very disorienting this year. The only comforting idea is knowing that we are not alone. We are all experiencing the same chaos.
Moms Play Harder
The only blessing from this experience is getting the opportunity to assess what is truly important as a mom. Family and health have become even more of a priority than before. With the extra time at home, we have found ways to create our own magical moments in the everyday routine. I hope you are finding time to play during a time of hard work and uncertainty.
At the end of the day, we all know that the most essential job title is mom. So thank you for doing your part in making our world a better place.
Happy Mother's Day!
