Motherhood...it's not for the weak


On Friday I went to see Motherhood the musical with some lovely ladies I met through a local blogging group. If you are local to Rhode Island or Southern Mass, or even if you're not,  you have to check out Rhody Mamas. They post the best deals on shopping and host amazing mom's night out events!  I hadn't read about the musical before we went, but I assumed it was a comedy. I mean, it is about being a mom which would have to be a comedy. My thought is, you have to be able to laugh about  the ridiculous situations you deal with as a mom. If you don't laugh, you will find yourself crying. Of course they covered the hilarious topics of incessant cries of, "Mooooommmmmyyy" from little ones,  becoming bulk shopping obsessed (Costco anyone??), going on a cleaning strike and getting a mini-van. I found myself relating to just about every character at some point. It also had some very touching moments mixed in with the laughs. I was relieved to see I wasn't the only one tearing up.

It was so nice to have a night out, watching a musical about my existence as a mom, and knowing that I am so not alone in this crazy thing called motherhood. The best part was not the show, but a text I got about half way through from my hubby. Of course he was on solo bedtime duty since I was out. I don't have a fancy iphone like the rest of you so I re-created my own text bubbles!


I love when art imitates life...and I'm not the one who has to clean it up.

  3. Sounds fun! I could always use a good laugh. There is totally something cathartic about uniting with other mom's to laugh at the craziness that is motherhood. Plus time away is a necessity to sanity.
