To the mom who...

has laundry baskets full of all the random detritus that collects around the house. Toys, hair bows, single socks

has wiped unidentifiable substances from her shirt and then gone about her day

is hiding in the bath tub, hoping nobody notices

forgets to take care of herself

wonders why it is so difficult to put on your f&*$ing shoes

swears that just this once she’ll be present for her children all day, only to burn out by lunch

threw some popcorn in a bowl and called it dinner

is drowning in to-do lists

is just hoping to hold it together until bedtime

lets the dog clean the floor
