It’s 5:30 PM. Bewitching hour. You’ve just picked up the kids from daycare after rushing through the drive-through bank line and dry cleaners. Everyone piles through the front door, books and keys strewn everywhere.

You toss a load of laundry in, pull out some frozen  chicken breasts, grab a sippy cup of milk for a complaining toddler and flip on the local news. A little voice pipes up (ok, demands) Calliou. As you explain that it’s important to know what’s going on in the world, your iPhone buzzes. The intern at work incorrectly sent out a meeting agenda to the wrong people. Great.

Scan the fridge for some veggies and realize the broccoli you bought last week is no longer good. Opt for frozen peas. Spin around just in time to see your toddler drawing on the wall. In permanent marker. (Where did she get that?)

It’s 5:33. Need a break yet?

There isn’t a mom we know that couldn’t use a little respite. Someone to watch the kids while she takes a nap or reads a book. 5 loads of laundry washed and put away. A mani/pedi. In home massage. Dinner delivered or a clean kitchen. A stylist to check her closet and put together three go to outfits. Her nursery or kid room organized. An in-home yoga session.

What break could you really use?
(cool) progeny and Pampered Mommas have teamed up to start granting local moms a bit of a break. Tell us what YOU could really use and each month for the next YEAR, we’ll grant one random momma’s wish.

How (cool) is that?
