“May your ice water be free of goldfish floaters:” A blessing for Mother’s Day

This Mother’s Day:

May you always pee in peace
May your coffee be hot and your wine cold
May you enter and exit the shower without an audience
May your hair be free of grease and your under-eyes void of dark circles
May your skinny jeans zip
May the only muffins tops in your life be blueberry
May your baskets be free of laundry and your sink clear of dishes
May your ice water be free of goldfish floaters
May your freshly mopped floors magically repel spilled milk and kool-aid
May naptime be long
May your feet avoid all legos and Barbie shoes
May dinner time be filled with “Seconds, please!”
May you sleep as deeply as the father of your children
May your children tell you that you are the best mama in the world and may you believe it.
Because, mama, you are beautiful. You are loved. You are the best mom in the world.
