Last week during my monthly meetup for bunco with some of my favorite ladies, they brought it to my attention that I tend to focus on the good parts of motherhood by what I share on my blog and it really got me thinking…By NO means do I want yall to think this is easy peasy or glamorous, or that there aren’t rough days, because I assure you, I get stressed out sometimes and need a breath of fresh air. A lot of you have told me you like when I talk about our days and how we spend our time and what motherhood is really like, but I do want to be honest and not have you think it’s sunshine and rainbows all the time, because we all know that just isn’t true.
However, on the contrary, I am not one to focus on the negative aspect of things in my life because I don’t see the value in looking at the glass as half empty…that’s just not my personality so that is absolutely one reason I tend to show the good, and maybe leave out some of the bad and the ugly.
For instance, I didn’t tell you that I got pooped on twice in one day last week when Caroline had a crazy bout of nastiness, and I absolutely left out the part where I had to change outfits four times in one day because she kept throwing up on me. I just didn’t think anybody would realistically want to know those little details…am I right?
But in looking ahead, I promise to be more upfront and honest with you…I promise I will leave out some of the intricate details because no one needs to know THAT much, but I want to show you the real ins and outs of my life and let you know that by no means am I trying to paint a pretty picture by leaving out some of the struggles we encounter.
