I saw this a while back and it so resonated with me. Thanks to social media, so often people can be mistaken for having the perfect life or always having their sh*t together (I'm guilty of this too - trying to get that perfect picture even if it means taking it 100 times) but just because I post a cute picture of my kids doesn't mean I have my sh*t together
I was cooking the kids lunch the other day while staring at my ridiculously messy house. This is an everyday occurrence with being a stay at home Mom (something I so took for granted when I worked and my Mom & MIL watched my kids) - my kids are messy, they are slobs, they take out a zillion different toys at one time no mater how many times I ask them not to, but I know they are simply being kids.
I often have to remind myself of this as I stare at my house and my insides start to boil when I see kinetic sand being thrown all over the floor, or playdoh making it anywhere but the table. And the glue, and the scissors, and the paper. But my kids are having fun and really, that is all that matters. Like the saying goes, Let Them Be Little.
So if you ever think other Moms have it more together than you, think again. We are all losing our sh*t one way or another at times :)
