I give you: MY NEW HERO. This Soccer Mom, at my kid’s last game.

Whilst the other parents stood loudly and earnestly and concernedly on the sidelines: this mother laid her body down on the ground, her head on her purse, and her blanket over her face – and napped.

Her entire existence said: I am showing up for my kid. But I’m not gonna pretend I’m not exhausted about It.

Please understand that periodically- when the sideline yelled and woke her from her warrior sleep- she would raise that little thumb of hers and say: yay. And then she’d go back to sleep.

I love her. She is a cultural icon for our time.

Here’s to WOMEN WHO FREAKING REST WHEN THEY’RE TIRED. May we know them. May we raise them. May we be them.

I would like to formally nominate this hero as the president elect of our Women Who Have Run Out of Effs to Give Club.

I will be the Secretary in Charge of Meetings. There will be no meetings.

I salute you.
