Some days I feel right on par as a mother, productive, disciplined, and creative. Other days I am just holding on until naptime!
I'm also that mom who loves Pintrest (Who doesn't?!?!). I recently rekindled that love by spending hours (yep, hours!) reorganizing my Pintrest boards. It's the one place in my life I can live out my dreams of craftiness, frugality, organization all without getting off the couch!
Of course, Pintrest's claim to fame is that it takes everyone's good ideas and puts them all in one place...but that can also be very misleading. Pintrest highlights bloggers, crafters, designers, and fashionistas at their finest, which is great for idea gathers but not so encouraging for a mother like me. It's easy to forget that even these Pintrest perfect ladies have lazy days, messy floors, and frozen pizza every now and then. However, when you spend enough time dwelling on the ideal, real life can seem a little bit less than relaxing.
Now I'm sure someone's life looks this pretty every now and then, but let's be honest, those Pintrest perfect moments are few and far between.
More often than not I'm just trying to keep bottoms diapered and bellies full, and if that means serving peaches right off the floor, then so be it! I refuse to be ashamed. This is real life, and it's pretty awesome.
