Reasons Moms Are Late – With a Giveaway from Jord Watches
I hate being late. Maybe it’s the years of being in the film industry where they drill into your head, “Early is on time. On time is late.” I even hated being late as a kid. My mom was known in the family for always being a bit late to events. We used to tease her that it’s because she believes everything is “half an hour away.” Time to drive to the grocery store? “It’s half an hour away.” Girl Scout meeting? “Half an hour away.” Trip to Saturn? “Yup. Half an hour away.”
Since having a couple of kids of my own, I have a lot more compassion for my mom’s tendency to be late. I realize now that it just may have been the fault of us three kids! Someone is always missing a mitten, lollygagging while putting on their shoes, or reluctant to leave a video game.
Did you ever notice how the more behind you are running, the longer your kids take to get ready? And how no one ever knows where their shoes are? Life lesson: Give a late mom a break!
When Jord Watches approached me with a giveaway idea for MomCavers, I immediately said yes! I’ve seen their gorgeous hand-crafted wooden watches all over social media. I figured, a new timepiece might help us moms to be on time… or at least look really fashionable when we’re late!
I loved my watch so much I couldn’t stop at just one. I also got one for my father-in-law, who is a master wood-worker. Jord has offered MomCavers a $100 giveaway.
I queried some of my online mom-friends about reasons they are late. Here’s what they had to say:
