21 Summer Drinks Just for Moms

Summer is a time when kids get to take a break from the rigors of classroom learning, relax with less constraining schedules and enjoy more family time.

Well, all that family time can be a little bit exhausting at times for mom.... maybe it's just me. Three kids that like to have things their way means we have some sibling rivalry on a daily, nope scratch that, hourly basis. The overseeing of sharing, taking turns, deciding when to step in and when to let them work things out on their own is.... well grating on my nerves at times. Not to mention I'm juggling work, keeping the house somewhat maintained and trying to plan fun things for them to do with all their "free time" Oh, wait! That's not just me, that's you too! Well, then let me pour you a drink. There's a bunch of funny memes out there about moms and wine, but with summer here, I may be reaching for something that has a little more, shall we say beach feel to it. Yes, you've got it. Drinks worthy of those cute little drink umbrellas.

OH and if you don't have time to peruse these perfect summer drinks right now - be sure to PIN IT so you can indulge later!
