Hey mamas out there! You’re not the same as you were before you were much more muchier you have lost your muchness!
Come on over to The Mom Hatter Party! Sit down, put your feet up. There are no manners here and don’t worry about the time! This is where you can take off whatever mom hat you are wearing and relax (ish).
So when I first watched Alice in Wonderland I immediately related to Alice. Lost, chasing time, kinda ditsy. Granted I was much younger than I am now and so it made sense to identify as Alice. However, the older I get, the more life I live, and the crazier my circumstances become I realize I relate to someone else in that wonderful Lewis Caroll Book so much more. My kids may say The Evil Queen, but as my title suggests I’m as borderline certifiably crazy as The Hatter.
I’m put together, yet all over the place. I’m gentle, but wacky and insane most days.
I like a party, as long it starts on time and by that i mean whatever time I’m good and ready. I have the craziest friends and I put them right at the top next to my husband on the importance ladder, but I love when new ones enter my life too! I say some ridiculous things, but sometimes I have some pretty solid advice. I’m surrounded by interesting characters, a kid who’s as unpredictable as a cat, another who’s silly and at times ill mannered like the March Hare, a gorgeous blonde teen girl who is constantly on the go yet still needs my guidance and of course my husband who is always telling us we are late.
I’m sure there are so many other moms who can totally relate to this.
Heck, maybe you have a tweedle dee and tweedle dumb, maybe you’ve got an old catipillar living with you or close by that always seems to give advice that makes us question all our life choices (cough cough grand parents). We moms were Alice once and then reality set in. The kind of reality that makes you question is this my actual reality?!
The point is we all are living some sort of crazy. I’m here to give you a peak into mine and perhaps you’ll relate to it! Each day as the Mad Hatter says “we start out as one person and end the day as someone else”. Mom’s are always changing, changing the hat they wear. There isn’t one type of mom. I do think we can all agree though that whatever hat it is we are wearing it’s always situated right over that crazy one, the one that has gone insane. It gets hidden from time to time by the daily responsibilities we must do, but once and awhile it peeks through, and we give in to our mad mom lives!
I have created a space to talk about those mom moments and the different mom hats we wear. A place to give advice, to let lose, and a space to look damn good dong it! I am inviting you to the tea party to end all tea parties. It’s the kind of party where we don’t actually drink tea. In fact I don’t even like tea. This is just a cover for us to pretend to be all prim and proper, so you put whatever you want in that tea cup! Sit down, let’s chat about all the mom jobs we do. I’m hoping to point you in the right direction, depending on the direction you want to go that is, and show you that just because you’re a mom, it doesn’t mean you can’t be the hostesses with the mostess!
Will it be all over the place? Probably. Will my kids interrupt from time to time? Most definitely. Will My husband drive me bonkers throughout? Absolutely. I will promise you this though, “tea” time will start promptly at 6 each time so don’t be late but don’t worry it’s always six o’clock here.
Am I mad? Yes. But I’ll tell you a little secret…all the best moms are.
