MOM'S NIGHT OUT : We All Need One Every Once in a While

Mom's Night Out was the perfect movie to watch with friends. We laughed and we cried as we identified ourselves with the characters in the movie.

This is a  faith-based message and hysterically funny comedy that your whole family will enjoy! All Allyson and her friends want is a peaceful, grown-up evening of dinner and conversation—a long-needed moms' night out. But in order to enjoy high heels, adult conversation and food not served in a paper bag, they need their husbands to watch the kids for three hours—what could go wrong?

 You can order Mom's Night Out from Family Christian bookstore now!

This is my day ....I wake up, I pray or at least I try to pray and then my mind says "Don't forget today you need to do this." and then I pray again and then my mind says "Oh...and this and this and this, too".  

I wrap up my prayer and as my feet hit the ground I wonder if my feet and my eyes and my brain will be in agreement with each other??  They rarely are and today is no different.  

Here is how this looks...
My eyes told me there is a pile of clean laundry that needs to be folded so I head that way. As I am folding towels...millions of brain reminds me that my oldest needs to be woken up as I have not seen him this morning, yet (we need to get some school done before he goes to work).  I run upstairs to wake him up and to my surprise he is up and making his bed (insert proud mommy moment).  

We get to talking about breakfast and I go back downstairs and there is my husband, hungry husband, so I begin to make breakfast.  
While making breakfast, my feet interrupt me and take me into the sun room, also known as the school room.  I find myself in front of my computer because my brain reminds me I have to take the kids to the dentist and I have no idea where this place is.  I start googling the address.  As I am getting the address, I decide to answer some emails and FB messages.

My nose reminds me that I am cooking breakfast and my feet take me back to the kitchen and my ears hear my kids asking school questions..."Do I have to do (insert school assignment)?"  "Can I just do this instead?"  "Can we go here or there?"

My oldest says "I am ready for work now."  So, I hop in the car and drop him off.  After dropping of my oldest, my other children remind me that the library books are due, so we make a quick stop at the library.

I'm back home now.
It's 10:23am.
I'm hungry (Yes, I made breakfast. No, I didn't eat breakfast).
It's gonna be a long day.

This might sound like complaining, but it's not!  

I wouldn't change a thing...well...maybe a few things. 

This is why we need a mom's night out.  This organized chaos we call family is the main reason we moms need each other! 

Some days are crazier than others but in the end all is well.  Mom's need a break.  We need girlfriends to love us even when we are unlovable.  Our kids aren't perfect, our marriages aren't perfect and we are not perfect, 
but we want to be accepted and appreciated 
and we want a mom's night out!!!! 

Here is another very real response from my friend regarding Mom's Night Out.
