{momlife} weekend things

September 25, 2015

FullSizeRender (22)Β The weekend is all about getting things done right? Doing homework (shifting it from the living room rug to the desk) breakfast cinnamon rolls (from a can), packing for NYC next week (pile all favorite shoes in a corner), and sleeping in (not). While I hope to do some of those things, and do them well, I’m not going to beat myself up. I was just chatting with a mom about how much guilt we as moms experience. There’s career guilt, housekeeping guilt, and mom guilt. Pick your guilt, there’s a name for it. I easily feel like an inadequate mom, blogger, stylist and mother. The latter of which has been the biggest (but most rewarding) challenge. Do you feel the same? I know I’m not alone here. Just keeping it real. I like posting pretty pictures of smiling faces but behind it all is real life, silent prayers for help, real challenges and a kid missing a shoe. But I’m not beating myself up for it. I’m sharing one of my favorite quotes:Β “There’s no way to be a perfect mother and a million ways to be a good one.”

 

Have a great weekend xx

    Ohhh the guilt ??. Too often. But it’s in those moments that God knows I need a little manna, and He is always faithful to give just enough to keep me going! You are one of my greatest inspirations, momma! ??
