Happy May 1st Subscription Box Society. It’s a new month and with that comes the opportunity to set new intentions, dream new dreams, and refresh with a new focus. And let’s not forget – discover new subscriptions.

In honor of May 2017, the month in which we celebrate Mother’s Day, I’ve written 3 subscription box inspired limericks, in celebration of all the moms who get by with a little help from the Society.

Happy Mother’s Day to you all!

To all the moms who’ve spent nights cleaning up barf that was projectile;

and who can’t find the bottom of all that crap thrown in a pile.

For the moms with the kids who’ve dyed the grout green on your tile;

and the mothers who are burdened with concern “what’s really behind that smile”.

For those of us whose dreams of vacations on a tropical isle,

are now dreams where we must rescue our kid from a crocodile.

And those of us who god dammit can no longer run a mile,

there’s no doubt in my mind it’s best accepted with denial.

Yet as moms, we continue to persist knowing it’s all worthwhile,

But it sure is easier, when you’re expecting your Zoe | Box of Style.

For those ladies no longer living life sipping rum in the sun;

and now are life’s lunatics willing to protect their babies with a gun.

To those who once partied late into the night, and in mornings would sleep like a bum;

and are now late nights are spent getting the kid’s homework all done.

For the moms of the kids who we’ve asked to clean-up;

it’s now day 481, no surprise – it’s still not done.

For the reasons we’ve run out of why your baseball team hasn’t won;

we now understand the chosen life of a nun.

I’d certainly never recommend one trade lives with a nun;

but I am willing to bet, they get boxes from FabFitFun.

In honor of the women who before kids never questioned, “I sure hope this is washable”;

and to those who ignore odors of stank feet in our homes, entirely probable.

And to the moms who believed “because I said so” was avoidable;

And the moms who discovered for a flushed cat, we’re responsible.

I applaud us all who maintain the belief that our kids are remarkable;

Wait, did you just hear a knock at the door,

Shit, I’ve gotta run – it could be from Wantable.

About The Author


Welcome, Subscription Box Society readers, thanks for stopping by. I'm Erin and here's a bit about me, in the 3rd person, naturally. Erin's a wife & mom of 3, a girl and twin boys. She spent most her life in San Francisco Bay Area but now lives in Colorado. She loves the first snow of the season, but not as much as the last one. She loves decorating her home for each season, loves good food, scratch that – ALL food, and reality TV. She despises putting away the laundry, being in the car when her husband is driving, and hearing her own voice. But really the only noteworthy detail here is her fascination with the brilliance behind subscription boxes. Welcome to the Society!
