I need a Mom’s Club to hang out at. I’m not talking about a club to talk with other moms about child rearing or a club to get moms and kids together at the Children’s Museum. I am talking about a place where I can get out of the house and not see all of the housework that needs to be done. A place where I can escape the kids and have some time to myself. When I need to escape last minute and don’t have any friends to have drinks with, I end up shopping or getting a manicure. Browsing the Home section of TJ Maxx is somewhat relaxing, but can get expensive.
My Mom’s Club would be like the Soho House, but not as expensive or hard to get into. It would have coffee and wine. Bravo shows On Demand. I wouldn’t have to fold laundry while I’m catching up on the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. I could recline in a comfy chair and read magazines (all of the current issues of US Weekly, Vanity Fair and Vogue). My iPad would be in my Club locker, and I could finally pin something besides the first two pins I experimented with on Pininterest 4 months ago.
Husbands wouldn’t be allowed, so there would be no judgement if I decided I wanted to watch Toddlers and Tiaras or The Bachelor or Facebook and tweet to my hearts content. Maybe I could even do my own nails while I watch TV and they would have time to dry before I am summoned to wipe someone who is getting to be too old to be wiped.
I could blog if I felt like blogging. Maybe there would be a craft table for doing some Martha Stewart type crafts. But mostly, I would like some peace and time away from the daily grind. Then I could come home, refreshed and ready to put some chicken nuggets in the oven and start all over again.
