Right now, women across the United States and the blogosphere are searching thrift stores, ebay, and their mother's linen drawers for aprons to wear May 14th. Some are making their own. Wearing their aprons inside and outside of their homes, Apron Moms will celebrate their pivotal role in making a house a home.
As the search for domestic bliss continues, a search that includes cleaning and decluttering, cooking tasty nutritious meals, educating children, and the care and feeding of husbands, women will celebrate the difference they make in the lives of their families. They know an apron is like a uniform that conveys authority, unconditional regard, and motherly wisdom all at once. Apron Moms know aprons are about cooking and cleaning but they are also about emotional availablity, hospitality, and femininity.
On Monday, May 14th, apron wearing women will drop children off at school, go to the post office and grocery store, and greet their families at the door wearing their aprons. Some will go to their work outside of the home. But regardless of where they spend most of their day, they will post pictures on their blogs of the places they boldly wear their aprons.
There will be a virtual cocktail party at 5pm CST to giggle about our experiences, to toast the internet's role in bringing us together, and to plan next year's Apron Mom March on Washington.
The devil very well may wear Prada but authentically feminine women wear aprons!

I have purchased one of Kitchen Madonna’s aprons and it is a treasure. I was wearing it when my 12-year-old came home from school yesterday and he immediately gave me a big hug saying, “I love to see you wearing an apron because that means we will be eating something good!” (Last night’s meal was tortilla soup and grill cheese sandwiches, but the dear boy did make a point of telling me the meal “hit the spot”) So I will be wearing my apron on Monday, as I do most days. Hope you will be too!
