I was so excited when Savannah asked me to participate in The Real Housewives Project! I hope you get a kick out of my real life moment at home – yoga pants with no plan for yoga, un-stylish top bun, a sick child glued to my hip, and a sink full of too many dishes :)
Since becoming a stay-at-home mama last September I have struggled with perfection. I had Pinterest ideals of a lovely home, 3 course meals, hip mama/baby outfits, and of course, the perfect blog that attracted hundreds of followers. Instead, I’ve yet to find a real sync in my new life and with a second baby on the way, I’m hesitant to believe I’ll ever find my groove!
But, I promise I’m trying – striving for a realistic plan, not perfection. This last weekend I got super organized … I made a simple meal plan, wrote out a realistic to-do list, and prayed I would have the strength, determination, patience, and every other good virtue to have a successful week. Then my sweet girl came down with a fever and cold :( She tossed and turned all night and our day has morphed into a snuggle movie day.
As we cuddle, I’m reminded of my true calling as a mama. It’s not about folded laundry or a picture perfect family – it’s about growing love, and then teaching my children how to give that love to others.
