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!
