On Saturday morning I text my friend that I may need to bring my youngest to the Mother’s Day Brunch. She politely responded, “You can’t find a sitter?” I was like oh damn I better find a sitter cause that meant no kids allowed. I quickly called my mom and told her my situation. The Miami Heat game 7 was at 1 p.m. and my oldest daughter’s soccer banquet was at noon and the Mother’s Day brunch started at 1. OMG! Overbooked once again. Thank God my mom said ok.
After spending 45 minutes at the soccer banquet, I dashed to Grove Isle to meet up with the Mafia. We had the most beautiful afternoon celebrating motherhood and talking trash. A stranger asked me were we some kind of kinky group lol. (She saw a few games on the table) I explained that they were kids dvd’s and games. (Really they were) She wanted to learn more about us. I shared how this fabulous mom started an annual Almost Mother’s Day brunch gathering her friends. She said, “I told them you guys weren’t playing with kinky toys!” Lol!
Bottomless mimosas and the beautiful sunshine kept us laughing and chatting for hours. It was great to see old faces and meet new mommas. We took lots of pictures and just enjoyed spending a few hours away from our normal Sunday. One of the best things about the mafia is that we all come from different backgrounds, lifestyles, and careers but the one thing that we have in common is being a mom. No one understands #momlife like a mom! The late nights, co-sleeping, can’t fit into my jeans, my man doesn’t understand, do I really have to do this everyday life of a mom. It was awesome to bond and celebrate each other. So call up your mommy mafia and plan a fun mom’s day out and RELAX! You deserve it!
