Momma Monday

It's Monday again (seems to happen a lot) and it's time to look back on the week and celebrate the success I had as a momma! Moms tend to get down on themselves and stress a lot. I challenge you to use Monday as a day to remember how much you rock!

Best thing about this past week? Date night!! We hadn't been on a date since September. I know, it's ridiculous. Working in ministry and temporarily living in Arkansas doesn't really give us many babysitter options. We can't afford the normal rate and don't know too many folks, but our good friend came over to save the day. My husband took me out for some brick oven pizza. We got to sit outside and just relax, together. We wandered around town, holding hands and smooching. It was wonderful. I was all twitterpated the next day. It was like we were dating again. It was wonderful!

This picture sums it up.

Being a mom is amazing. It's full of love, smiles and giggles, but it's hard. It's really hard. It gets overwhelming and a little smothering. Date night made me feel like a beautiful, smart, adult again. Filling your day with binkies and baby food can make you feel a little less than hot, but it's worth it!

How did you rock as a momma this week? Don't have kiddos? How did you rock just being you?
