“I want Olaf in my backpack!”
This was shouted to me at 8:30 am on a Friday morning by my 5 year old.
Mind you she had been up, getting ready for about 45 minutes and picked 5 minutes before we needed to be outside to catch the morning school bus for school.
The morning deteriorated even further into the depths of despair and you can read more that I recently shared here.
And yet this my friends sadly isn’t the first time nor will it be the last time in reality that this modern mom, which isn’t a “supermom” by any means, but still feel the pressures to be one and has endured the stress of the so-called dreaded morning routine with her kids.
That is why I was even more excited to read the latest book that has been newly released by Alexa Bigwarfe and Kerry Rivera, Lose the Cape: Realities from Busy Modern Moms and Strategies to Survive, because the reality is that I am just a normal mom (once again definitely not a supermom) who is constantly just trying to do the best for her family.
Lose the Cape is an attempt to reach out to all moms and let us know we’re already super, cape or not (even though we don’t need one). It features resources galore – including suggestions and tips from a diverse group of moms to make life run smoother. This book is a godsend and is broken up into 11 key sections, including The Morning Routine that I so desperately have indeed admitted above and previously that I do need some major help with. Plus it also includes organization, meal planning, evening routines, and new mommy worries for all moms looking for some relief.
See we, moms, try to be super every day, but we don’t need to aspire to be “supermom” because she simply does not exist. So, I think it’s time for all moms to join together and Lose the Cape.
So, for that and so much more, I can’t thank these amazing ladies for compiling this book as a true guide on how to tackle even the worst stresses and moments all moms (myself included) can and probably have incurred often enough.
