“Are those flamingo cocktail floaties as bath toys?” My sister-in-law asked as she ducked her head in during bath time.
“Why yes, yes they are. ” We do bath time every day and I had completely forgotten how these little bath-critters came to be in the first place. LOL
This is what I call a Mom Win, for multiple reasons.
- I got away for a girls trip where those Flamingos were employed as intended: in a swimming pool, with cocktails, friends and sweet freedom from the mom life I love. We all need “us time”, “girl time” and to take a break from the demanding little people whom we adore. A little “me time” goes a long way and results in better women, better moms and better relationships.
- My kids love them and they’re cute. It’s technically recycling and a win-win all around. Waste not, want not.
- A reminder to laugh. Adulting can be far too serious and the stress of mom life is a real thing. Appreciate the humor in it when you can.
Mermingos – apparently they are a thing. Who knew? Obviously, I’m an instant fan. As a lover of mythical creatures, how could I not? I had no idea mermaids enlisted an aquatic, aerial steed but I’m down for it.
If you are new to this mind-blowing discovery and need Mermingo gear in your life, worry not. Fried Sugar Designs has you covered with pillows, water bottles, notebooks, flip flops and basically anything Mermingo imaginable.
Still not sold? Why not go all the way with the noble Unifllama? If that doesn’t make you giggle, then you may be beyond all hope.
