Validate yourself and other mommies in your life all year round.

When I am trying to gossip with my bestie about how much alimony Kevin Hunter is demanding from Wendy Williams, you can bet my toddler isn’t far belting out yet another remix to, “Wheels on The Bus”. My BFF has been mommin’ and multi-tasking for a while now, so she completely gets when every sentence is interrupted by, “Mommy’s on the phone. Inside voice!” Sometimes the, “Girl, it’s cool. Handle your business,” or my husband admitting that my morning routine is flawless does more for validating my effort and energy than a Hallmark card full of quotes and dandelions. It doesn’t have to always be a wordy Facebook dedication, sometimes a small gesture or compliment goes a long way to getting moms through each day.
