I want to be honest with you today in hopes we can all break the ice on what is really going on behind closed doors. The mommy guilt has got to stop. If we aren't feeling judged about how we feed our children, how they sleep and whether or not we let them watch t.v., we are judging ourselves by our appearances and how tidy our house is. Enough is enough.
Today I am taking a stand against it and I am opening up the doors to my home and show you what really goes on.
My house is a wreck, my hair is always up, makeup makes it to my face about once a week. I can't even remember the last time my head saw a blow dryer (good thing the messy look is in b/c I rock the shit out of it). My children watch tv and I don't always have developmentally appropriate activities planned throughout the day for them and I don't always make the best choices.
Now this looks cute and all but home girl Ava spent an entire hour today playing with my running shoe. Notice how it isn't on my foot and I am not going running in it…I have to say, I thought about it and decided to instead sit down and read my book.
That awkward moment when nobody understands that the brown lion birthday cake is supposed to look like your dog… Thought it was a good idea but it was an epic mommy fail on my part. This party was not at all Pinterest worthy and after getting rid of much mommy guilt over it, I decided I didn't give a crap.
