Phrase of the Day: Mommy Adrenaline
noun /mom-ee uh-dren-l-in/
1. A magical burst of energy, widely called mommy adrenaline, that allows new mothers to power through exhaustion and mothers in general to juggle an ungodly amount of tasks at the same time. When produced in the body it increases a mother’s superhuman powers, helps her grow additional arms when necessary and, frankly, makes Superman look like a pussy in comparison.
Sentence usage: “How is Candy able to wake up for yet another 3 a.m. feeding marathon and still have the energy to simultaneously — and spitefully — kick her snoring husband? Two words: Mommy adrenaline.”
