I’m one of those people that absolutely love Pinterest. I love the idea of it, the whole 9 yards.
BUT.. I’m a “wanna-be”. I’ve pinned so many things, I don’t even remember pinning but at the time I found them amazing and SO cool.
I’ve pinned crafty things for the kids, awesome remodeling ideas, diy’s for the WHOLE house, super cute outfits, budgeting money, and some super tasty recipes.
Normal right?! Yet, I’ve maybe put a few of those saved pins to good use. A few yummy recipes and some hair ideas to bring to my hairdresser. As I sit here, while my daughter takes a nap. I wonder why on earth do I pin all these “super cool things” if I never put them to good use??
I personally think it’s because I want to be that totally equipped mom that looks like she totally has her shit together. The one that can do-it-all and still look fabulous. But in all reality, I’m not.
Like today, I did laundry and the dishes. Felt like a damn super-mom. I haven’t even put on pants today, why? Because NOBODY cares what I look like in my own home. If I’m home, I’m gonna be a damn bum. No doubt about it.
I’ve come to the realization that I’m not going to be that mom that looks like she has her shit together, because I’m still processing the idea that I’m a freaking mom to two beautiful babies.
Mom-ing doesn’t come with a manual. There’s no right or wrong way to parent, there’s your own way.
So if I want to sit home without pants, I’m gonna.
If I want to feed my four year old chicken nuggets or frozen pizza, it’s gonna happen.
I’m definitely not a super mom that diy’s everything and looks 100% anywhere I go.
Damn Pinterest. You make everything look SO EASY.
