‘Wanted: ‘That’ mom friend. My lonely hands are out-stretched, just waiting for you to take them.’: Mom urges ‘I hope we can soon stop the looking, together’

“The one who I can call at any hour of the night, because both our families are wide awake anyhow. That friend who sends memes of familiar frustrations, and follows up with ‘We got this,’ and ‘I’m always here.’ The friend who overcasts the heavy, uneducated opinions of others with her kindness.”

Sometimes, I Don’t Want To Be The Mom

“Sometimes, I don’t want to worry about the drinks and the snacks and the sunscreen and the chairs and ‘Did you go potty?’ or ‘Make sure you bring a jacket!’ Sometimes I don’t want to make dinner. Again. Or load the dishes. Again. Sometimes, I’m not ‘cherishing every moment.’ I’m surviving.”
