Power to the Mom - by Lauren

A friend of mine posted this as her Facebook status (from Athleta) and I thought it was really inspiring.

Get up.




Work it out.

Stretch it out.

Get out there.

Get them out there.

Run the house.

Run the company.

Run the dishwasher.

Protect yours.

Include others.

Amaze the world.

And look amazing.

It's life.

A crazy happy life.

We can't wait to get up

And do it all again.

Power to the She.

 -Athleta magazine

It inspired me to write my version:

Get up at the crack of dawn.

Go drink massive amounts of coffee.

Run after a 2 year old to get him dressed.

Breathe before you lose your mind trying to leave the house in a reasonable amount of time.

Work on potty training.

Stretch the hamstring you pulled chasing said 2 year old.

Get yourself somewhat acceptable looking to leave the house.

Get him out of the house without a fight.

Run all your errands.

Run after 2 year old loose in Target.

Run the dishwasher and then realize it was empty.

Protect your couch from jelly hands.

Include others in your daily chaos by posting on Facebook .

Amaze the world with the amount of wine you can drink.

And look like a nominee for What Not to Wear.

It's life.

A crazy happy life.

We can't wait to sleep

And do it all again.

Power to the Mom.
