Some days when I log onto blogger, instagram, facebook and twitter I instantly get discouraged. I read blog posts that are amazing and insightful full of beautifully edited photos of children in adorable outfits.
I compare their posts to mine with their millions of followers and thousands of comments and get frustrated. The post I wrote that seemed so awesome the day before is full of spelling errors and my mindless rambling. The photos are from my iPhone and my kids are fully of snotty noses and stained clothes! I'm lucky to get one comment!
Then I look at the moms themselves in the pictures. Always with their hair curled perfectly, and dressed adorably trendy one day after popping out a baby. Of course the baby weight is all gone!
How do you do it! Some days I barely have time to brush my teeth or comb my hair. Forget working out. Neither kid naps at the same time and the only gym that offers childcare won't accept E until he is 6 months. And lets be honest. If both kids do nap at the same time I'm either scrambling to clean, do laundry or take a nap myself
And lets not talk about the crafty moms. The moms who put me to shame by always doing creative activities with their kids, or who think of all these cute goodie bags for every holiday to pass around to Giannas daycare class. Sigh. I'm lucky if I remember to buy a bag of chocolates to pass around to her class let alone label the bags with a cute tag
And then I wander why I put so much pressure on myself. I don't have to compare myself to anyone. I love reading blogs and following people on Instagram for the fun of it. Not to hold myself up to anyone's standards.
I will still wander how people find time to cram their days full of crafting, learning and play time with their kids while also working out and doing their hair and makeup! But I'm hoping once my husband gets home ill be that mom too!
Until them however the kids and I are hibernating at home, rocking it out in our pjs
