A friend of mine saw this t-shirt and immediately thought of me because I’ve joked about being basic.
I know that I am the essence of basic. I wear Lulu to the gym (though honestly, I like Lucy better). I like lattes. I’m a suburban mom, driving a minivan, doing basic things.
But truly, when is the life of any mom basic? Yep, we wipe butts, and noses, and countertops, and more. We tie little shoes, and untie knots in our little ones’ hair. We drive minivans and SUVs in our carpools, and spend hours at their activities.
But there’s magic in every day of it. There’s laughter, there are snuggles for days, and there is so much reward.
My kids have taught me to appreciate the little accomplishments, to stop and smell the roses, and that a good hug fixes many problems. They make me better, and do better.
So I’ll take basic! I’m going to wear this shirt proudly, and ironically. Because basic is where it’s at.
