Sing Loudly


Step one: Sing “Fat Bottom Girls”

Preferably at the top of your lungs.

In your car.

In a city not your own.

That, Mommies, is how you will know that you have detoxed from your mommy life.

I traveled alone for the first time in a very long time (years, people) without my family. Gotta be honest, I was fidgety and anxious for almost a full 24-hours after I left home.

No one to talk to. No one to wipe down. No one to feed, clothe, clean, yell at…not even my kids.

I was starting to think that I might never settle down and thought maybe I should just high-tail it back to my comfort zone and my comfort pants (lululemon studio pant thank you very much).

But I stuck with it. Even rented a car, braved a hotel room and found myself something to eat.

By 9:00 a.m. the next morning as I was searching through radio stations, I finally had my Jerry McGuire moment in the car.

I turned up the volume, place both hands on the wheel and belted out “Fat bottomed girls you make the rockin’ world go ’round!”

As quickly as I was enjoying my moment, I made a wrong turn into a naval base and was halted by an armed guard that needed to see my drivers license.

It was short lived, but it was LIVING!
