I love Fridays, I love thank you notes, and I love Jimmy Fallon’s Thank You Notes, so, naturally, Friday here on my blog means:
Jimmy’s Thank You Notes
Thank You Notes
I was running a bit behind, so I thought if you guys wouldn’t mind, I’d write out my weekly thank you notes. Do y’all mind?
Thank you, kiddos, for our Starbucks & bookstore date. 🙂
I just thought it was funny that I happened to lock my phone after texting with my sister to see 9:30 on 9/30. 🙂
Thank you, family, for a fun weekend.
It was good! The movie is different from the book. The whole family went, which may have not been the best idea, because a certain little one wasn’t having some of it. However, that just meant mommy cuddles at the movie. 🙂 I’ll take ’em!
Thank you, sweet friends, for all the birthday wishes!! Y’all are the best!!!
A more serious thank you note….
Thank you, PENNY!!
I truly appreciate Penny’s honesty in one of her latest YouTube videos. She talks about Xanax and the stigma some mothers face because they take this legally prescribed medication, but yet there’s no stigma for posting pictures of needing wine after a long day with kids. Penny is not saying that it is bad for moms to drink, she just wished that people didn’t see Xanax as a weakness or something to be ridiculed for. If a mother is suffering with anxiety and gets help for it, she shouldn’t be seen as weak, selfish, or less than.
As a mother, and a mother who has battled anxiety myself, I totally agree with Penny on this one. It’s not bad to get help. Not everyone’s help will be the same. We can’t judge another mother’s decision to take a doctor prescribed medication to help manage anxiety. If the mother… or parent is taking the medication correctly, not overusing, or taking with other drugs, and it HELPS, that’s awesome! Many moms are afraid to admit they need help, and sometimes their lack of speaking up doesn’t end up well. Perhaps, if we didn’t create a stigma around mental health we wouldn’t have such an issue.
I’ve talked a few times about my anxiety on this blog, and I’ve also mentioned carrying around a bottle with a few pills of Xanax like Augustus. It helps. The pills are over 2 years old. 😀 But it’s my placebo. I feel better knowing they are there just in case.
If you have 45 minutes here’s Penny’s video:

Thank you, baby girl, for comparing me to Ellen. 😀 She said, “Mama, you’re like Ellen with your giveaways for YOUR birthday.” Ummm… thanks kid. Hopefully, nobody realizes I’m not giving aways TVs or trips. 🙂
