A girl will always need her momma. I know I will :) Glamour magazine featured an article back in May 2011 called 11 Times You Still Need Your Mother. Oh so true!
1. When the love of your life gives you a diamond ring...or meets someone else.
Well, I certainly don't have a diamond ring on my finger. The last guy I dated, well, I'm the one that broke up with him. My mom is always there for me to talk to about my boy problems. Some people don't really get how I can talk to my mom about stuff like that, but we have a great relationship. We're good like that.
2. The moment you pee on a stick and it's (OMG!) positive.
She would definitely be the first one I tell when/if that happens!
3. On the morning of your birthday, when no one else is going to call till noon.
4. When someone gives you a compliment so lavish you'd be embarrassed to repeat it to anyone else.
There are definitely some things that I've told my mom that I'm too embarrassed to tell my dad or anyone else. That's what moms are for, right?
5. When you find a lump. Or she does.
With regular appointments, I pray that neither of us have to deal with this one.
6. When the kids you're babysitting won't stop crying.
There was a situation last summer where I had to call mom for this. I got stuck babysitting for a friend that fell asleep, because she was so 'tired' from the night before. Mom calmed me down and I got through it. At least now I know I can handle a two year old and a 7 month old.
7. When you get your first pink-eye or food processor...or mother-in-law.
I've never had pink-eye (I don't think). My best friend got me my first mini food processor and I was so excited that I did call mom. No mother-in-law yet!
8. When you need someone to assure you that yes, 30 is still really, really young.
Mom constantly tells me that I'm still young. Thanks mom!
9. When you need to know the exact shade to fix your undereye circles.
My mom used to work for Estee Lauder. She's my go to for makeup.
10. When the recipe calls for evaporated milk and you're standing in the grocery aisle wondering, is that a powder? A liquid? A gas?
I still do this, all the time!
11. When you've swung up to the sky, and it doesn't seem real until she applauds.
My mom is my biggest supporter, besides my dad and brother of course.
What do you still need your momma for?
