Hope your day of breakfasts in bed and dinner out was mah-ve-lous! Like birthdays, I’m a firm believer that celebrations should never be confined to one day. What better way to top off your mother’s day festivities than a quick mini-break to Wee Chic to sip champagne and meet Charm City’s own Scary Mommy, Jill Smokler?
The author of famed mommy-blog (by the same name) and the newest mom-must-read book, Confessions of a Scary Mommy: An Honest and Irreverent Look at Motherhood — The Good, The Bad, and the Scary, will be at Wee Chic from 4 PM – 7 PM. Double bonus? If you purchase the book at Wee Chic today ($15), you’ll get 20% off your total purchase.
Not familiar with the book? Here’s a little teaser:
Sometimes I just let my children fall asleep in front of the TV. In a culture that idealizes motherhood, it’s scary to confess that, in your house, being a mother is beautiful and dirty and joyful and frustrating all at once. Admitting that it’s not easy doesn’t make you a bad mom; at least, it shouldn’t.
It’ll be an evening of celebrating the perfect imperfections of motherhood. And you’ll still be home to read that bedtime story.
