10 Ways Moms Are The Masters Of Improvisation

Moms are heralded for their organizational skills, but it's their improvisational skills that truly make them brilliant. Hey, Mom — you got this!

1. Putting socks on your hands when she couldn’t find your mittens.

2. Putting thumbtacks under your sneakers instead of buying you cleats because she just knew you weren’t going to like soccer.

3. Giving you two puddings when she ran out of lunch meat.

4. Making leftovers for dinner but making it feel like a new meal every time.

5. Dressing you in "vintage" clothes (from your older sibling).

6. Tricking you into raking the lawn really fast by telling you that all the neighborhood kids were competing in a “rake-off” next week.

7. Playing "The Quiet Game."

8. Licking her finger before wiping the schmutz off your face.

9. Getting you a lizard that one time you asked for a pet dragon for your birthday.

10. Getting really creative with those last-minute school supplies you needed.

There's no shame in Mom's improv game. Let's stop the guilting and start showing the moms in your life some love today!
