A Mom’s Best Friend

A Mom's Best Friend

Diamonds might be a girl’s best friend, but about six months into motherhood that shiny ring on your finger loses some of its luster when you are suffering from sleep deprivation and covered in poop, pee and puke.

Whether you are a full time career mom, a part-time career mom, or a stay at home mom, the truth is being a mom is hard work. Is it all worth it? You bet, but that doesn’t mean your days are all sunshine and roses. Usually you days are a mix of cuddles and smiles mixed with crying, snot, cooking, cleaning, laundry, whining, and little people shouting, “Mom, mom, mom!” on a continuous loop. A few shiny baubles do very little to make your days easier.

So here is a list of mom’s real best friends. No matter how bad of a day you are having they are always there for you. They always have your back.

  • Caffeine~ Whether you drink Starbucks, Earl Grey, or 5 Hour Energy, caffeine is your constant companion and never too far from your reach!
  • Chocolate~ When you are at your wits end sometimes you just need a little treat, a small reward to help you make it to bedtime.
  • White wine~ When chocolate just isn’t enough to help you make it to bedtime. We’ve all been there. The days when you don’t know if you should yell at the kids or just get in the car and drive away and leave them to fend for themselves.
  • Red wine~ Really, when you need it, what’s color got to do with it.
  • Nutella~ See chocolate.
  • Yoga Pants~ God truly smiled down on women when he said, “Let there be yoga pants.” A true best friend, they tell us, “Go ahead, have another glass of wine. Eat that second square of chocolate. Don’t worry, I will lift that ass up for you!”
  • Detachable Massaging Shower Head~ You know, for massaging stuff.
  • Vodka~ For the days when even wine isn’t strong enough.
  • The Lock on the Bathroom Door~ Honestly, its the only privacy you are going to get all day. Unfortunately this time will not be considered quiet time since one or more little people will be standing on the other side calling, “Mom, mom, mom.”
  • iPhone or Computer~ Mom’s don’t have friends in real life until the kids are older. Nope, for several years all of your friends are going to live inside of your computer.
  • Candy Crush, Bejeweled, or Pet Rescue Style Game~ You only get to have five lives and then the game shuts off for hours unless you beg your friends for more. Truthfully this is perfect as most moms can only play for about five minutes anyway before a child takes the device out of her hand so he can have his turn.
  • Xanax~ For when you have finally given up and have resorted to a fetal position.

So what items are your best friends? Feel free to share them below!

  1. all of the above!!!

  2. Aspirin, Chipotle, and new lotion socks. I love the feeling of new socks on my feet. Especially the kind with lotion embedded in them. Oh! I also rely on my Amazing Grace body lotion by Philosophy. You know, so I can smell something beautiful as I’m changing a not so beautiful diaper. 🙂

    • I love the socks at Bath and Body Works at Christmas time. They are so thick and soft. Socks is definitely a MBF. I need to try a Chipotle. We don’t have one by us but I love real good Mexican food.

  3. I love my red wine, my running shoes so I can run out the frustrations of writing, my camera so that I sometimes see the beauty I missed when it was right in front of me, and the first cup of hot coffee while I’m the only one awake.

  4. You nailed it lady!

  5. Trade the Xanax for a nice hit on the bong and you’ve nailed my list perfectly!

  6. 1. Yoga Pants
    2. Flip Flops or Tennis Shoes
    3. Booze, straight up, no chaser
    4. Caffeine
    5. Xanax, Klonopin, or muscle relaxers
    6. Facebook and Blogs aka the internet
