Dirty Laundry Mom

When you are a mommy blogger, you often feel under pressure to be perfect, and to some, it may seem like we are. We do posts about how to organize the house, take pictures of creative craft projects, and project the image of a Pinterest-ready house. The truth is, we are just like every other mom.

We wear sweat pants. Our laundry isn’t folded or put away. There are toys all over the living room. We order take-out.

There is so much that happens behind the scenes that our readers never see. They don’t see when we have to push piles of stuff out of the way in order to take pictures. Readers don’t see the pile of dishes in the sink or the splatter on the counters after making a recipe.

Ugh. My son has toys all over the living room. However, he is happy and content so I can't complain too much!

We are just like any other mother. We get mad or frustrated. We have dust on our furniture. We despise laundry.

What is reality, however, is that we love being mothers. Yes, there may be cobwebs in the corners, but the truth is that instead of cleaning those corners we were playing outside with our kids, or reading them a story, or even just spending time with them watching a movie.

So, the moral of the story is that looks can be deceiving. In reality, we are just like you…dirty houses and all! So if you are reading our blogs and think that you can’t possibly measure up, don’t be fooled. Instead, be like us and instead of worrying about having the perfect life, go love your children!

Happy Mother’s Day!
