I'm not really sure why parents put so much pressure on one another & are so quick to judge. Parenting didn't come with a manual! Let's all just come together & laugh about the daily, we as mothers go through! I've decided that I'm only one person & if my living room is going to be covered in toys so be it! If I were to constantly pick up after my mini tornadoes I wouldn't have time to do much of anything else! I called my grandma crying overwhelmed with you know ... Life and she told me this....
"Megs your house is clean enough to be healthy & messy enough to be happy!"
I realized right then & there that life is to short to try & be perfect. Also perfect for who? How many moms do you know that do the 15 min power clean before your arrival... Trust me I'm not the only one! So if you ever come over & trip on a Lego or see a few dishes in the sink or my random coffee cups around the house ... Just know I try! Xo
& what would a day be without arguing , a perfectly made pillow fort, something flushed down the toilet or keeping your clothes on?! Not much of a day at all!
Don't sweat the small stuff ... Just love them! They don't stay little forever.
Mom Tip! Sometimes we have to embrace the chaos & turn it into a party!
