February is here. We all know what that means–celebration of love. Love for those special people we can’t imagine living without. People who love and support us through thick and thin. People who know us better than we even know ourselves. People who would drop everything and be by our sides in the good times and bad.
I know this isn’t exactly breaking news, ladies, but motherhood is HARD. It can be messy, frustrating, exhausting, and lonely. So when we find other women who can truly get where we’re coming from, we need to grab hold and hang on for dear sanity.
They are the ones we celebrate on February 13th, the unofficial holiday of Galentine’s Day. If you’ve never observed Galentine’s Day before, here are five reasons why you absolutely should!

Or when the baby locks herself in the bathroom and the big kids try to fix it by removing the doorknob and you almost have to call the fire department. (Yes. These actually happened to me. Within a two-day time span.) Our girlfriends will not only believe us, but they have probably got their own crazy stories to help us feel not so alone in the insanity…
