Or just as likely, we’ve got questions and you’ve got answers.

THIS is why mama needs a break —

Because those little legs keep moving and tripping and chasing and climbing things. Climbing big things.


That little voice keeps yelling and crying and fussing and making sure he’s got her attention. Her full attention.

Those little arms keep reaching and swatting and grabbing and tugging. Tugging at her leg.

That little child keeps laughing and grinning and melting her heart before attempting to do all the dangerous things.


There is nothing in the world more important to her than loving this precious babe. But day after day is spent holding onto each other, and mama’s gonna need a break.

So, please take this note as a gentle nudge to give that sweet mama some space. She loves her child more than life itself.

But someone give mama a break.
