The struggle is real – the Mom struggle that is. Across the world, Moms are putting in the extra work to take care of themselves and their families. We are shouldering it all – working from home, homeschooling the kids, the bills, ALL the meals, and did I mention – ALL THE DISHES? So maybe you’re not wearing a cape as we speak, but you are a Supermom!
Our current parenting roles are pushing us to the limit but we’re all getting it done. Every Mom is using their “superpowers” to get through this pandemic and Malt-O-Meal cereal is celebrating all the important work moms are doing right now. Stay tuned for a special giveaway at the end of this post – just for you, Mom!
Some days are stressful and may leave you feeling flustered. Somehow with all the stuff on your to-do list, you’re moving forward. Didn’t I tell you it’s because you’re a Supermom? Just look in the mirror and you’ll see her smiling right back at you (or crying depending on how things are going today). Ha! Though some days are harder than others, you’re pushing forward Supermom.
Pre-pandemic, I homeschooled my kids, worked from home (most days), and my husband also works from home. So I know what that everyday, sometimes chaotic (everybody at home – all the time) feeling feels like. It’s a wild ride – I KNOW! I can honestly say that I have to take shortcuts to get through a lot of days. Whether it’s setting up bills on auto-pay or eating cereal for dinner, look for shortcuts that allow you to be efficient with your time.
Yes, I said it! Cereal is a perfectly acceptable meal for breakfast, dinner, or a snack. It was my son’s suggestion to have it for dinner so I didn’t even have to convince the kids that it was acceptable. Mom-win! Malt-O-Meal cereal is the perfect choice for savvy moms, super tasty, and great for our ever-growing grocery bills. One of our favorite varieties is Malt-O-Meal Berry Colossal Crunch®. However, there are over 30 delicious varieties including: Malt-O-Meal Frosted Mini Spooners®, Malt-O Meal Golden Puffs®, and Malt-O-Meal Tootie Fruities®.
If you’re like me and enjoy snacking on cereal, then don’t be afraid to hide your favorite cereal in the cabinet just for you. When you’re up late at night trying to finish that last load of laundry (the laundry never ends) you can have your favorite variety all to yourself, Supermom. After all, you do deserve it and the kids don’t have to know everything. Savor those little moments that keep you going and get back to that long list waiting for you.
To honor you and all of the extra work moms across the world are doing right now, Malt-O-Meal is giving away $30,000 worth of personalized gifts to moms (two $500 gifts each day for 30 days), plus Malt-O-Meal cereal for each winner’s pantry, via a social contest on the brand’s Facebook page, now through June 25. Winners will receive prizes from local businesses in their community so that’s a double-win.
Please know, I understand what it’s like. It’s pure craziness sometimes, okay most days. But you’re doing great! You’ve got your cape on, you’re slaying your task list, even with those silly kids, and looking for all the shortcuts to stay sane. Malt-O-Meal sees you, your family sees, and I know you’re out there. You’re a Supermom! Keep going and pushing forward. You can do this!
