I decided to take the kids to lunch all by myself today while my husband was working. And it felt a little like a three ring circus. There was one point where I was feeding the baby, cutting a pancake, and eating a bite of eggs all at the same time.
I felt a LITTLE like I was in over my head. And then as we were about to make our big exit, the three year old knocked over a full cup of coffee 🙈🙈(completely cold though, because #momlife- even at restaurants). It went all over the floor, on the car seat, and all over me.
And strangers from surrounding tables jumped up to help.
They offered napkins and empty arms to hold babies.
They asked if the baby got coffee on her (she didn’t). They reassured me that I didn’t spill anything on them (I probably did 😩). And then as I gathered everything to head out to the car, they asked if I needed help carrying anything.
Strangers. And not even JUST moms. So just consider this your weekly reminder to do good things. Be kind. Offer help to someone who looks like they need it- they will most likely tell you they don’t, but the gesture will never go unnoticed.
Go out there and do some good, mama!
