mom of the year

‘All I wanted was a rotisserie at Costco. Instead, I almost lost a limb.’: Mom says to remember during coronavirus ‘we’re all in this together’

“I passed by people wearing gloves, and masks, and yes, hazmat suits. I am a former nurse. I also rely heavily on world leaders in situations such as these. If they say wash and keep social distancing, I follow suit. But there was something about the empty aisles, wiped clean of paper products and water bottles, that caused a tide of panic to rise in me. I checked out of Costco, and reality, and found myself aimlessly scrolling for solutions from the front seat of my car.”

‘This virus is basically just a cold.’ School is canceled, our spring break trip isn’t happening. I’m looking at lots of time home with 5 kids.’: In the midst of coronavirus panic, mom urges ‘use this time to show kindness’

“What do you mean there’s no toilet paper left? We’re almost out and there are 5 kids that live here. What about wipes? Out too? Ugh.’ It was in that moment I notice people’s faces. Some look scared, most look confused. I lock eyes with a few moms and desperately want to start quizzing them to see if they are facing the apocalypse at home as well.”

‘Your kids played hooky from school today? Wow. Mother of the year.’ What? I was laughing out loud in the hotel.’: Mom responds to ‘rude’ person who called her out for taking kids skiing, ‘School can’t teach adventure’

“Once we got to the hotel, the kids immediately wanted to go swimming. While they were playing, I took a picture of my baby watching them. I posted it with the caption, ‘watching the siblings swim!,’ as well as a location tag of Breckenridge, Colorado. Within 30 minutes, I received a comment that honestly blew me away.”
