It began as a joke–Captain Dad was talking about the strength it takes to parent through the day and we started humming the theme to the “Army Strong” commercial.
There’s Strong, and then there’s Mommy Strong…
But honestly, I’m finding it helps me get through some tough points in the day to imagine the music swelling as I lift my toddler or juggle the dishes.
You don’t really even have to change the lyrics, because we could benefit from getting over, and getting over ourselves…but it is more fun to mess with the words.
There’s “strong,” and then there’s “Mommy strong,”
It’s more than physical strength; it is emotional strength.
Not strength with others, but the strength of mothers.
Not just strength at 12pm, but strength at 12am.
It is not just the strength to command, but the strength to convince,
Not just the strength to lift toddlers, the strength to lift spirits,
Not just the strength to lead, but to get your kids to actually follow,
Not just the strength to push, but the strength to push everyone out the door.
Not just the strength to do it yourself, the strength to teach little ones to do it for themselves.
There’s nothing stronger than a loving family, because there is nothing stronger than the love of a mother.
There’s “strong,” and then there’s “Mommy strong.”
Please feel free to add some lines.
