The movie was hilarious and completely relatable. It was about three hardworking moms who planned a night out on the town while their husbands watched the kids. As you can imagine, things went hilariously wrong, and the moms spent their evening trying to fix problems with their children and husbands as opposed to having a stress free evening. Here's the trailer, if you're interested in watching.
What I loved most about the movie was its message. The main character, a loving and devoted wife and stay-at-home mom, extended herself in a million different directions, trying to keep up with her own unrealistic expectations of what a perfect mother and wife should be. Exhausted and emotional, she felt as though there wasn't enough time in the day to get everything done and be the perfect mother and wife that her family deserved. Near the end of the film, there was a motivating and heartfelt scene where Trace Adkin's character speaks a reminder that everyone is born to be exactly who they are. As long as we give it our all, be ourselves, and have faith that things will work out for the best, we will make a positive impact on the lives of our loved ones.
As a message to myself and all the moms out there, I offer the following: You are meant to be exactly where you are at this moment, and you are meant to do exactly what you're doing precisely how you're doing it. It's okay if you're not the perfect chef or housekeeper. You don't have to be the mom who creates activities from Pinterest every week or is the head volunteer for the school PTA. Just know that you are making a difference. If you're putting forth your best effort, then being yourself is enough! Dear moms, you are enough!
