Went to the Bathroom Alone Today? Congrats, Now There's a Card For That

The new line of Mum's Milestones cards honors those mom moments we all experience.

There are so many important milestones to celebrate when you have a baby—the first tooth, the first solid food, the first day of school... All important occasions that deserve proper recognition.

Of course, we moms have a lot of firsts to celebrate, too. The first public tantrum, the first potty training accident, the first time you have to get up and leave a restaurant in the middle of your birthday dinner because your toddler just threw up all over the table.

Or did that last one only happen to me?

Anyway, thanks to Sydney neighbors Becky Feiner and Esti Zilber, there is now a new line of cards called Mum's Milestones, designed to honor all the crap we warrior mamas conquer on a daily basis with zero accolades.

Mum Milestones

You know, things like having sex for the first time post-baby, getting peed on, making it through an entire day without talking about your kid's bowel movements, and finally being able to shimmy your skinny jeans more than halfway up your thighs.

My kids are 13 and 10 and I'm still waiting on that last one, BTW.

Each card features an awesome illustration on the front, plus a place for you to fill in the date when you crushed the formidable goal, so you can then take a selfie with it and share it on social media in order to get your mom gloat on.

Because these occasions are all totally brag-worthy. But if no one knows you mastered them, what is even the point? So post it if you got it, mama. Then sit back and let all those amazing props roll in—at least until your kids start annoying you again and you're forced to hide alone in the bathroom.

And yes—there's a card for hitting that milestone, too.
