who run the world?

Who run the world?

Moms.

(If, by “world,” what Beyonce actually meant was: the entire household, everyone’s schedules, and afternoon carpool. Then, yes. #accurate)

But, you know who else runs the world? The girl for whom Mother’s Day isn’t all breakfast in bed and homemade cards. She might be longing to be a mother, or she might be missing her own mother. If that’s you this Mother’s Day, then I am so sorry. Know that I wish I could reach through your screen, hug your neck, and tell you how strong and awesome you are. And then give YOU a gift too. Just for being you. (Also, because I’ve now renamed today ‘WHO RUN THE WORLD’ DAY. And you’re a world runner, I can tell.)

a day in the hustle

Moms are pretty much total #bosses, right? And I think we can agree that we are all seriously HUSTLING.  Like all day, erryday. (The answer is NO. I don't know why I think I can get away with saying erryday. BUT, I'm GONNA.)  Whether you are a mom who works inside the home, outside the home, or some combination of both, you're going to LOVE this post by my blogger friend, Cait. She's gonna fill us in on what her daily mom hustle looks like, and we can all be inspired. And maybe slightly jealous of the way her husband brings her coffee in bed. (AHEM. Hi, JOHN.)
