Hot Mess Mom Life
“Being a perfect mom is a myth - but being a pretty great mom most of the time is actually possible.” - Rachel Hollis Ummm yeah. What she said! ☝🏼 Perfection is NOT a thing my friends. Whether it comes to your marriage, your fitness journey or your kiddos. NONE of us will ever amount to perfection. 🙋🏼♀️ Our life over her is often a hot mess. Some days the tv is on for much too long, some days (who am I kidding - most days 😂) I wear the clothes I worked out in til bed, and there are almost ALWAYS dishes piled HIGH in (& around) the sink.
Jay & I got back from our trip 3 days ago... we still haven’t unpacked &, to be honest, our suitcases are now a very real tripping hazard because we’ve opened them but left them right where we dropped them on our bedroom floor. 🤷🏼♀️ Life is NEVER perfect. And Mom life, sure as HECK, is NEVER perfect (just add in about a million smelly diapers & laundry baskets piled a mile high). 🤫 Even though we won’t ever be EXACTLY the kind of parents we hoped... we CAN shoot for pretty great. We can get down on their level. We can smile & laugh & play. We can dance party, we can say no when we need to & hold our ground. We can teach our children about respect & responsibility. We can show them grit & we can show them gentleness. I’m letting go of the perfect version of me every day & Dangit... I am STOKED to be pretty great (most of the time😘). #MadeforBrave
