Being A Mom

Being a mom means many sleepless nights. Waking up at any hour of the night, usually more than once, to calm down a little one whose had a bad dream.

Being a mom means giving up your sweet tea to your girls, because they love it as much as you do. Or telling them that you have soda in your cup because you really don’t want to share.

Being a mom means taking care of your sick children, even when you are sick yourself. Because no one else is going to do it, and they need you.

Being a mom means helping your children with homework, even if you don’t understand it yourself. We can try our best by following the examples on the worksheets to help them, but we don’t always understand it. (I so wish we had text books to look up how to do things, it would be so helpful.)

Being a mom means giving up your privacy in the bathroom. Cause no matter what you do, if you go to the bathroom, it becomes a family event! Even if you lock the door, they are sitting or standing right outside of it, waiting for you. Sort of like your pets!

Being a mom means being patient, no matter how much of a hurry you are in. Someone is always going to lose a shoe, sock, lovey, etc. And they need your help to find it.

Being a mom means sharing your breakfast, lunch, snacks and dinner with your children and anyone else’s children visiting your home. They all want what you have, even if they have the same exact things on their plates. If it’s on mom’s plate, it must be way better than what they are eating!

Being a mom means being physically, mentally and emotionally exhausted beyond everything you've ever known. It’s a lot of work, but it’s so worth it and so rewarding in more ways than you could imagine.

Executive Producer: Tim Lewis
Screenplay by: Chris Weitz                  

The story of “Cinderella” follows the fortunes of young Ella (Lily James) whose merchant father remarries following the death of her mother. Eager to support her loving father, Ella welcomes her new stepmother (Cate Blanchett) and her daughters Anastasia (Holliday Grainger) and Drisella (Sophie McShera) into the family home. But, when Ella’s father unexpectedly passes away, she finds herself at the mercy of a jealous and cruel new family. Finally relegated to nothing more than a servant girl covered in ashes, and spitefully renamed Cinderella, Ella could easily begin to lose hope. Yet, despite the cruelty inflicted upon her, Ella is determined to honor her mother’s dying words and to “have courage and be kind.” She will not give in to despair nor despise those who mistreat her. And then there is the dashing stranger she meets in the woods. Unaware that he is really a prince, not merely an apprentice at the Palace, Ella finally feels she has met a kindred soul. It appears her fortunes may be about to change when the Palace sends out an open invitation for all maidens to attend a ball, raising Ella’s hopes of once again encountering the charming Kit (Richard Madden). Alas, her stepmother forbids her to attend and callously rips apart her dress. But, as in all good fairy tales, help is at hand, and a kindly beggar woman (Helena Bonham-Carter) steps forward and – armed with a pumpkin and a few mice – changes Cinderella’s life forever.
