You know those houses that are all over Pinterest. You know the kind with the organized closets, sparkly kitchens and adorable laundry rooms?
That's not what my house looks like. I promise.
I have plenty of sink-full-of-dishes and overflowing-laundry-basket kind of days.
It's just life.
Don't even get me started on my car. It's a 1999 Toyota Corolla.
No, not a shiny SUV, but I'm proud we paid cash for it and it runs!
(I would take pictures, but I'm lazy and don't want to go outside right now haha)
There is no door handle on the outside drivers side...and no door handle on the inside on the passenger side. Figure that one out!
My diaper bag looks like it went through a blender. twice.
But to be fair it's from all of those one handed frantic grabs for a toy, wet wipe or pacifier.
Yes, poor Sophie the giraffe is suffocating in the mess!
I do love to get dressed cute for the day, and I try to be intentional about not looking frumpy...
but some days only sweatpants or comfy shorts will do.
I'm all about eating healthy...
but I will admit that I cheat. In fact, I am currently sitting in my bed eating chips and cheese dip. Yup. (hiding my face in shame as you read that)
I think my daughter thinks I'm weird.
And it's quite possible that I am.
Yes we do have random mini photo shoots together...poor baby.
I'm sure these are all things that other mamas can relate to in some way or another. Instead of being critical of each other and always trying to one up our fellow mama's let's get real and remember that it's not a competition to see who has it together the most. These things really aren't important in the grand scheme of life!
What is important is that we are loving our children, spending time with them, being patient with them, raising them well, and glorifying God even in the midst of chaos! I cherish the moments I have with sweet pea whether it's bath time or story time. That time with her is so much more than a Pinterest house or a glam makeover!
