I was looking in the comedy section for anything that looked remotely entertaining but that we could also watch in front of the kids. This movie, Mom's Night Out, caught my eye, and my husband and I actually watched it twice before we returned it.
It was fun and funny and very relatable if you have kids or take care of kids. The part where all she sees is salmonella all over the counter is totally me. Check it out and enjoy a fun movie night laughing about the follies of parenting and trying to get a night out.
If you're in the mood for a sweet story about being a parent through out your life, check out I Will Hold You 'Til You Sleep by Linda Zuckerman, illustrated by Jon J Muth.
My daughter picked it out at the library, and I'm glad she did because I might have looked right over it. She called it 'the mommy book'. I read it to her a couple times then decided I had to buy it. It's a sweet reminder that a parent's love lasts a lifetime.
To everyone who isn't a parent- you still make a big difference in the lives of everyone around you and are very loved and appreciated for just being who you are right now.
To all the parents out there reading this blog- hang in there! At the end of the day, the month, the year, what a child will cherish the most is every moment you loved them.
