WINTER GARDEN, FL—I first met my friend Susan when we were both wide-eyed moms at our preschool’s open house. Her 4-year-old and my 3-year-old were going into the same classroom at a local prep school. And we were both absolutely terrified that with all the school rules and Do’s and Don’ts, we were going to miss something or do something wrong. We made it through the year (no doubt because we spent so much time comparing notes in the parking lot after drop-off). Our kids (now fifth graders!) have long since moved on to other schools, so I was over the moon when Susan wanted to introduce her new school friends to Science of Parenthood!
In order to catch these super-busy moms, Susan hosted a post-drop-off breakfast at her gorgeous home, out in Winter Garden’s horse country. And wow! These gals were ready to laugh! Nothing cracked them up more than “Paleosexuality: Evolution of Mom’s Sex Drive.” [LET’S LINK TO SELECTION ON OUR BLOG] Until I read selections from “An Update to the DSM-V,” about some of the more harrowing “mental health conditions” people may experience once they have kids. Proof positive that insanity is 100 percent inherited from your children.
Favorite moment: When the ladies chimed in with their own stories about diaper blowouts, projectile vomiting and toughing out homework assignments with their kids. (Honestly, having been through all three, I’m really not sure which prompts more tears.)
Congratulations to Seme (left) and Adina, who each won a Mother’s Homework Prayer fridge magnet in our drawing. (Alas, our prayer won’t make Common Core any easier, but it might prevent you from ending up doing 25-to-life in a federal penitentiary.)
And because these ladies are all about giving back and doing good in their own communities, they really loved hearing about Boogie Wipes‘ and Nehemiah Manufacturing‘s mission to create jobs and second chances for the people in Cincinnati.
That’s all for now. Tune in next time as the #BoogieWipesTour heads to Denver!
Couldn’t make it to the party? That’s okay. You can still enter our giveaway!
