Sometimes when I am investigating all to the internets have in store I find myself viewing certain Mommy blogs (no one I know in real life or blogroll!!) that are awesomely creative, innovative and syrupy, sickly sweet with their musings. I sometimes wonder what type of drugs these people are doing and where I can get my hands on some so I can also knit/sew/cook from scratch/cloth diaper a baby all while raising money for orphans and making my own laundry soap from organic...organic...whatever organic I can't even think of what is in laundry soap at this time.
Not that there is anything wrong with doing all those things, I think it's great an admirable and wish I could be so compelled to be good and wholesome and do those things but I don't. Is there something wrong with me?!?
My point is I wonder if these people are real. I really do! Because some days it's a wonder I'm even able to get dressed or take a shower, never mind all the other things I need to be doing.
That's why I am telling you that it's my objective to paint a real picture of what MY life is like and not like what I *think* it should be like. I'll never judge what any other family does that works for them, that's just not fair. I'll also always be real with myself and my blog friends. If it's too personal to share I just won't write about it here.
But I won't always paint such a glorious picture on how life is. Because it's not. Life is hard and extremely rewarding and so is being a parent which is my current occupation. It's a catch 22 between being grueling and monotonous and joyful and challenging. It can be extremely lonely and full of sighs but man, it's REAL and it makes you feel things you've never felt before and you do things you never thought you'd do (hello! Is that baby poop that my hand is resting in, why yes, it is!).
Now I'm stepping off my soapbox. Thank you for tuning in.
