When I get the chance to relax, one of my favorite things to do is snuggle up on the couch and watch a comedy. Don’t get me wrong I can watch Indiana Jones and Jurassic Park all.day.every.day. BUT with two small munchkins running around the house it’s nice to settle in with some laughs after they’ve gone to bed. Goodness knows I could use a chuckle after potty training, an epic meltdown, or this fabulous threenager phase.
The days are long, but the years are short.
Repeat mantra. Over and Over.
Look at this FABULOUS Mom-osa! OH YES. You can bet I’m calling my drinks that from now on. It’s catchy and I love it.
I like to class my drink up(sometimes) and add a little puree goodness on the bottom? What no fresh raspberries from the store? Just add a spoonful of goodness-organic pear and black cherries-YUM.
Dash of Orange Juice-that’s right, I said dash.
Spoonful of Pureed Fruit
Repeat if necessary.
Drinks all around! That’s right. Comedy and a glass of bubbly??? That just about solves the roughest poop-fiasco. Did I lose you at poop? Yes, ahh the glamorous life of a parent.
I was sent the first TWO episodes of Odd Mom Out and boy did I laugh out loud A LOT. Most of the time I was shaking my head and cheers-ing the mom for her bravery to just DO HER. You know the saying DO YOU. Doesn’t matter what anyone else thinks. You DO YOU. Well, that’s hard to do in the world of judgmental parenting and trying to keep up with the Jone’s.
The Story: Odd Mom Out
Jill has an interesting perspective into the crazy world of the Upper East Side—where money is no object to her peers and normal every day issues consist of how to get your child into the best private school, which elite cycling class you should attend, or when to add a “Von” to your name to move up a class. Jill hilariously navigates the social scene; one awkward moment at a time.
I’ve definitely felt like the Odd Mom Out in my four years as a parent. Not having the financial means of having a baby-sitter every weekend means at-home date nights for my husband and I. So going out with our friends that live lavishly has put us on the out-skirts of their social calendar. I don’t believe we are missing out on anything. But their comments can be quite blunt and off-putting. Ignorance is bliss-in that they don’t understand because they don’t have to? That’s just go with that.
I am grateful that I’ve met pretty incredible moms this past year who are like-minded in the fact that they are REAL and down-to-earth. It is nice to know in this crazy world that we are not alone in our battles and Bravo does a great job at showing that moms everywhere are just doing their best.
Hilarious even without the Mom-Osa. Or two.
