When Luvs asked me to #sharetheluv and choose a parent to spoil in the month of February, I was stoked. Since my mom helps out so much with my kids, an overly dramatic 5 year old and a “strong willed” 18 month old, I knew she was the perfect person to show some “luv” to. So, from one experienced mom to another even more experienced mom, I gifted the things that every mom needs in her arsenal.
Target Gift Card: Let’s be honest. Target is like the mecca for moms. There’s something about seeing those red and khaki uniforms that just puts a girl at ease. From the warm greeting of the worthless junk in the dollar section, to the glorious accessories section, the seasonal items and everything in between, it’s just all around amazing. It’s something about the mix of the bright fluorescent lights, the shiny floor tiles and the omnipresent red bullseye, it’s like Xanax in a big-box store form.
Dry Shampoo: When you have kids, washing your hair falls down, like way down on the daily list of to dos. Who needs clean hair when you are literally responsible for every aspect of keeping tiny humans alive? That’s where dry shampoo comes in. I’m sure it’s terrible for the environment and is made of questionable ingredients that I can’t pronounce. But you know what it’s great for? A mom’s sanity.
Wine: We KNOW, we get it, moms love wine. After a long day of butt wiping, food cutting and tantrum diffusing, there’s nothing like a little mommy juice to take the edge off. For some it’s wine, for some it’s trashy books, for others it’s a bubble bath. It doesn’t really matter what it is, but moms deserve SOME no fail, stress reducing go-to at the end of a rough tear filled, crumb covered, million-question-asked day.
BlowDry Bar: There comes a day in every woman’s week when her dry shampoo just can’t cut it any longer (I’ve gotten up to 6 days…be amazed, be grossed out, it’s up to you). I don’t care where you’re from or who you are, I don’t know a mom out there that doesn’t feel a little better with freshly washed hair and a beautiful blowout. Having it done by a professional? Surrounded by gossip mags and free champagne? Bring on the tears of joy.
Black Leggings: Because, duh. But, seriously black leggings are the a gift from the angels for any mom. Slimming? Check. Stain Hiding? Check. Versatile? Double Check. Comfortable? Triple Check. Could you really even ask for anything more?
Awesome Diapers: Constantly having to change diapers gets annoying. Constantly having to change sub par quality diapers is just flat out unacceptable. Moms don’t let other moms use crappy diapers(pun intended).
Experienced parents have each others back and are always eager to share their “tricks of the trade”. Like using Luvs, the official diaper of experienced parents. Large stretch tabs, softer and more absorbent than ever before and ultra leak protection. You can #sharetheluv with the parents in your life too.
