As moms, there are some days when everything goes our way, we're walking on cloud nine, kicking a**, taking names, mastering carpools and winning in just about everything we do. Then BOOM, just like that, we go from skipping through our day to drowning in diapers and deadlines, and being judged by those who pass us by. It's normal to feel one step behind when we are mothering. But some days our patience seems to vanish that much faster, and we're left wondering if that mom who always seems to have it together is just another social media facade, or... does she really make her kids Pinterest-worthy lunches on the daily?
Either way, we all need an outlet and that's exactly what we got with the sequel to "Bad Moms." "A Bad Moms Christmas" humorously exposes an underexposed topic: the draining demands of motherhood. Through all the f-bombs and moms-gone-wild scenarios that only Hollywood can create (i.e., the hilarious manscaping scene), this movie speaks to all walks of Mom. The cast obviously had a blast, as did the audience with every high-five because "A Bad Moms Christmas" was so incredibly spot on with the realities of motherhood.
In celebration of the film's Blu-Ray and DVD release on Feb. 6, Susan Sarandon and Cheryl Hines — who play grandmothers in "A Bad Moms Christmas" — reassured us that it's quite all right if we're NOT perfect, and we must leave room to forgive ourselves. I couldn't appreciate them or agree with them more!
