I sit here in front of the computer trying in earnest to think of something inspiring to say about motherhood, but all I can think about is going to sleep. A week and one day into solo-parenting while my husband is away for a business trip has left me even more exhausted than I normally am which is typically pretty damn tired. And so instead of being creative with my words, I sit and daydream of various sleep scenarios in my head: a nap on the couch, an early-to-bed night, a quick cat nap in the hammock…. a girl can dream, right?
To win, I ask that you leave me with some words of inspiration to get me through the next several days until my husband FINALLY gets back home!
But what is the giveaway, you ask?
Well, mamas, it’s a very special one indeed. We will choose two winners for this giveaway!
Each winner will receive a ticket to the Listen to Your Mother show that is coming up on May 9, 2013 at 7:00pm and a $25 gift card to Eat Out In, a food delivery service that brings food from your favorite Austin-area restaurants right to your front door or to your office. It’s the perfect combination, you see, because you can order dinner for your family while you get all gussied up for a night out a show “takes the audience on a well-crafted journey that celebrates and validates mothering through giving voice to motherhood–in all of its complexity, diversity, and humor.”
What do you have to do to win? Leave a comment below with some words of inspiration for me and all of the other tired mamas out there. Tell us a joke, tell us it will get better. Tell us that we will one day sleep again, even if it’s a lie. Tell us what you love about being a mom.
All comments must be posted by 9:00am CST on Thursday, May 2, 2013. The winners will be notified via email with 24 hours to respond to claim the prizes. There is no cash value. You must be 18 years or older to win. The prizes are non-transferable. By leaving a comment, you agree to the above terms and conditions. You must live within the Eat Out In Delivery area to use the gift certificate (check your zip code here).
