Gold Stars for Grown-Ups

Grown-Ups deserve gold stars, too, ya know.

 

Especially the grown-ups with a dead husband.

You actually got dressed today?! 

You talked to another human being? 

Without mentioning your dead husband? (I don’t get a star for this one)

BONUS STARS IF YOU MAKE EYE CONTACT 

You didn’t throat punch the women in line at at grocery store for complaining about their husbands? 

Wait…you ACTUALLY went to the grocery store? 

BONUS STARS IF YOU DIDN’T SPEND MORE THAN $50 ON ALCOHOL AND SWEETS ☆ 
☆ DOUBLE BONUS STARS IF YOU DIDN’T CRY SNIFFING THE KIND OF DEODORANT HE USED TO WEAR IN THE MIDDLE OF THE STORE 

(I also don’t get a star for either of these)

You kept your children fed, showered and alive today? (cereal counts as dinner) 

Kept yourself fed, showered and alive today? (dry shampoo counts as a shower, right?)

 

But you know what?

Even if you didn’t do any of this today.

Even if you’re just here.

Just alive and you make it through another day…
