If you bring a Mom a Root Beer Float…
She will get up from the computer and forget the laundry again.
She will remember that she forgot to put dinner in the crock pot but realize it’s too late to solve that problem and that there is always frozen ravioli
If you bring a mom a root beer float she will open the door and notice it is nice out.
She will stop thinking about the state of her ass or that she’s not losing the baby weight.
She will drop what she was doing and thank you profusely .
She might invite you in even though life is messy, so very messy right now.
She will forget that the last adult interaction she had, was with a grocery store delivery man.
She will put down her coffee, which is hard to do these days.
She will shut the computer and turn off the notifications and ignore the frustrations.
She will pull a chair outside and bask in the sun. Before the baby wakes from the nap and preschooler gets home from school.
She will feel her stress melt away with every sip and spoonful.
She will take a selfie and post about the glory that is a root beer float.
She will remember that she exists. That there is life outside her door and more going on than nursing and napping.
She will remember that it’s usually the little things that make the difference.
She will wish she had hugged you and thanked you more.
She will forget that the witching hour is almost upon her. She will lose herself for a moment and just enjoy the calm and forget all the damn things that need doing.
If you bring a mom a root beer float she will be grateful, she might even write a blog post about it.
