*The biggest congratulations to Izzy. I’m so happy for you!
Chocolate or any sweet treats – It’s helpful to have some sweet treats around at all times, preferably kept by the vodka. It’s especially useful when you accidentally plop your baby down in their crib as you were gently laying them down and while it didn’t faze them at all, you’re crying and almost hysterical. But I don’t know this from experience or anything. Ahem.
You’ll need more sweet treats and vodka as they get older; toddlerhood, childhood, tweenhood, teenhood, adulthood. Oh Shit!
Vodka – A no brainer.
Bathroom time – Just 5 or 10 minutes of time in the bathroom without having a child knocking and banging on the door while yelling maaaahhhmmeeee, maaaahhhmmeeee would be absolute bliss.
Rescue Remedy – If you drank all of the vodka in your house and are already out of the 6 pack of nyquil you got just last month, it’s rescue remedy to the rescue. I usually take it at night when my mind just doesn’t want to turn off. It has a good punch of alcohol in it. I’m sure you’re not seeing a theme here.
Slings and Arrows – This is one of my all time favorite shows. Paul Gross who plays artistic director Geoffrey Tennant is amazing. It’s a funny and quirky show and very helpful on the nights your baby or toddler will. not. sleep.
Happy Mother’s Day to all of the beautiful moms!
What are your mom must haves?
