I have a confession to make….I am a HOT MESS MOM! Most days I stay in yoga pants. Most days I do not wear makeup. Most days you can find my hair in a bun. Most days my house is a mess. Most days I forget what day it is!! And that is OK!!!
We all parent different, we all are totally different people. I think the best thing we can do is parents…..is just do the best we can! And never judge someone else! I’ve had days where I look like a perfect Mom with a perfect family. And I’ve had days where people roll their eyes at my appearance and my children’s behavior. That is life.
I don’t pretend to be perfect, and I never pretend to have all the answers. I try to just be me and offer help and advice when it is asked. I never judge, I never pretend to have it all together, I never talk down about other Mom’s….because I’ve been there too!!
Today I answered the door and my 2 year old took the couch cushions off the couch and moved them to the back door and tried to open it! In the span of 30 seconds! He has also pulled a coffee pot off the counter while I was in the bathroom. My 4 year old has ripped up part of my brand new floor while I took the trash out. My 6 year old claimed to need to use the bathroom and painted on the wall with peanut butter. All 3 of my kids have colored all my walls! Two of them have eaten insects. One has eaten cat food. All 3 of played in a toilet at some point.
Am I a good Mom? I like to think so!!!
Do I watch my kids? Yes!! I’m what you call a helicopter Mom!
Do my kids misbehave? YES!!! They are kids!
Do I do the best I can? Every. Single. Day!
And that is all we can do! Be the best we can be. And never ever ever judge someone else….because we have all had bad days!
