With Mother’s Day just around the corner, all we really want is to have a few hours away from our #momlife duties. No laundry, no meal prep, and no chauffeuring the kids around or arguing about screen time. We’d like some time to change out of that dirty t-shirt and leggings and to actually wash our hair. Maybe even get our nails done, wouldn’t that be wild!? Kids, we love you. But sometimes we need a breather. Is that really too much to ask?
A recent Instagram video that Kelly Clarkson posted is pretty much the perfect depiction of how we all look and feel. The caption reads “Woke up this morning to a birthday scavenger hunt that ended with an anagram!! Best surprise ever!” Could you imagine if your girlfriends surprised YOU with a kid-free getaway for a special occasion, or just because? Like this momma, we wouldn’t be able to contain our excitement.
The video went viral with over a million views in a few days, and we can totally see why. We tend to think celebrity moms are on a whole other level of parenting, and that they have it so much easier than us regular moms. So, it’s nice to see that someone like Kelly Clarkson can wake up with sweaty hair and a stained shirt, and get just as excited about some much needed me-time as the rest of us. We hope you had the best trip Kelly, you deserve it—and so do we!
