And to those of you who wish you could spend the whole day with your kids. And to those of you who would much rather enjoy adult conversation.

And to those moms who arrive five minutes late. Drenched in sweat. A broken heel.
To the moms who stand by the sidelines, screaming like honourary coaches.

To the mamas who got to get their nails and highlights done.
To the mamas who like it au naturel.
To the mamas who post each and every single picture of their kids on social media.
Look, they peed in the potty for the same time!

Loves yourselves because we love you.
You're rocking it to no end.
