This is #MOMLIFE
Even though I make hair products for a living and write about fashion, my life is far from glamourous.
Once upon a time I was a sassy, well-rested career gal with a convertible and no cares in the world. Today my house is a mess, the laundry never ends and I spend hours a day barking at my children to stop barking at each other.
I guarantee your mom can relate. I also know she works too dang hard to look like a hot mess. So, as you brainstorm this year's Mother's Day gift, consider these 10 reasons why she might appreciate a little peace and quiet and a fresh new hair do.
10 Reasons Why Mom Deserves a Time Out
Reason #10: Carpool Karaoke
Sure, it's #hillar when that British dude sings acapella with Bruno Mars, but in real life your mom is lucky to feel "Happy" enough to sing along to the Displaceable Me 2 soundtrack on backseat repeat.
Reason #9: Yogurt
Good for calcium, they say. Active enzymes, they say. "I don't like yogurt!" you say. Your mom says if nobody ever eats it why is it smeared on both sides of every cushion of my once pristine Crate and Barrel Petrie sofa.
Reason #8: The Rising Cost of Daycare
For the same monthly price of a matching set of his and her 2017 Range Rover Sports, your mom and dad can afford double daycare in the Washington DC metro region.
Reason #7: Unrealistic Expectations Set by YouTube Kids
No, your mom cannot make you a mega-size surprise egg stuffed with Minecraft and Shopkins blind bags and covered in a Play Doh shell crafted in the likeness of Olaf.
Reason #6: The Bathroom Audience
There was once a time when your mom could use the bathroom alone. Those days are over. Props to your mom for teaching you to fetch some toilet paper.
Reason #5: Spilled Milk, Orange Juice, Wine and Cashews
Your mom asked you 10 times not to drop that box of chocolate milk. Your mom should know better.
Reason #4: Waking Up at 7AM... Forever
Before your mom had children she had a nightlife. When she finally went to bed she slept it off. Now she wakes up when you do and knows that no open bar or headlining DJ is worth that type of torture.
Reason #3: Laundry Day
Have you ever watched the movie Ground Hog's Day with Bill Murray when he is forced to repeat the same day for the rest of his life? Your mom calls that movie Laundry Day. She never wants to see it again.
Reason #2: Prize Fighters
The only reason you kids get a tiny pass on the never ended screaming match over nothing is because your mom knows how much she fought with her own sisters. All the time. Over nothing. With no concern for her dear parents' ears. Now she also knows that karma is a bitch.
Reason #1: That New Hair Feeling
Under your mom's tired eyes and sparkly grey regrowth, there's a pretty lady begging for a fresh new hair do and that amazing feeling she gets walking out of the salon.
I guarantee if you give her a beauty time out for Mother's Day, she'll be a lot nicer when she finds what you hid behind the couch.
This Mother's Day, give your Mom a well deserved time out and a dose of that amazing fresh new hair feeling with a gift card for a service at your local Bubbles Hair Salon. Plus, every gift card purchase of a $50 or more earns a $10 bounce back for you (psss... you should use it try out some Cibu. Just saying.).
