As a mommy of two young girls (6 and 1) I don’t always get to go out, but fortunately for me, I have a great sister who makes sure I’m having some ‘me’ time, too. And because of her, I got to go see Mom’s The Word! It’s a wonderful play, playing on Granville Island in Vancouver, BC until July 23!
I experienced every form of joy during the 2 hrs and 15 mins of this show, which is expected, but I also teared up and reflected on my own experiences as a mother. It validated and reassured me that I’m not the only one who feels like she’s losing her mind. That even though I may be covered in unknown substances and bouncing up and down to soothe a baby I’m not holding, I have a place in a club of mothers who get it. It uplifted my spirits, made my heart soar, and reinvigorated me.
I would recommend this show for any mommy who is sleep deprived, missing private bathroom time, and is seriously considering reading the dictionary because of trouble with…umm…words. Yeah, that’s it. Words. The show ain’t going to help with the sleep, but I guarantee you’ll laugh for the afternoon. With other adults!
