We Are All A Hot Mess!

Its true!!! We are!! Well, maybe I should explain more so you understand!

Yes... I am talking about us Mom's! I found this on facebook today and had to share it there! And then as I stewed over it some more today I relized I needed to make a blog post about it!
Its interesting how we all look at another mom and think they have it all together! I actually talked about that in my last blog post!
We think they are the "perfect" mom! They have motherhood figured out! There house must be always clean and there kids are always happy and good and played with enough!! But most of that is not true!
We had are couples Bible Study Sunday night and I was telling a friend there how bad I am at keeping the house up and how Andrew helped me clean this past weekend and my goal is to keep it up better! She told me that her house was not clean till Friday... That kinda shocked me at first! The times I have seen her home it always looks so so nice! I guess I just assumed she had it all together on the cleaning front! Then we were talking of friendships and our kids and she mentioned how some nights she would wonder if she had played with her daughter enough that day. Once again I was shocked!! I relized just how much I had thought other Moms had it together and I was just the odd one!
Then today I found the above quote! And it rings so true for me! I am sure there are other moms out there that may even look at me and think I have it all! And I laught and think "ya right!" But in truth, we each think the other person must have it all together, when really, we are all on the same page! Yes, Maybe for some its easier to clean or to play with our kids. Some parts of being a mom come easier to others, but there is always something or a few things each mom does not feel like they are up to beat on! 
I have decided to be the best mom I can be! And know that other moms out there are fighting the same battles with me!!!

Lets talk a little about life here at my house!!

This little cutie is 8 months old now!! Where did my baby go? I am allready working on stuff for his 1st Birthday party!! Crazy! he just started pulling up on stuff this weekend!! He is on the move!!

I Want To Be "That" Mom!

I am almost 100% sure other wives and moms can relate with me on this topic! But even if you cant thank you for taking the time to read this post! This post is mostly about a few things I have been learning and working thru as a wife and mom!

To be honest with you, there are days I feel like I just dont cut it as a wife and mother. There are days the dishes pile up, the laundry really need done, ( hubby tells you he is putting on his last pair of socks) i never even get out of my "messy" cloths, my hair is up, no makeup, and I am doing all I can just to get supper done.

And on days like those I love to look at other friends and think how they have it all together! The one who just posted on facebook that she made her own bread, the one who post pictures of her kids and you can see clean house in the background, and so on and so forth!

And I really did look at them and think they must be so good at this! I feel like im just keeping my head above water!! I get a day planner, I even write out my day! And only 3 things get crossed off if im lucky! I am so not a good wife and mom!

But then ya know what? I realized that I may not be were I need to be on my house! And that yes some of that is on me (i let my phone and facebook distract me) but that does not mean I am a bad wife and mom! And since I see these things, why not take small steps to start changing them!

So I did or am! I am taking the small steps to work on things! I also know that no mom really has it all together! The grass is always cleaner on the other side!
I am taking those things that have made me think other moms have it all together, and letting them fuel my passion! I want to do those things! And I will!

Dont get down if you are a wife and mom and feel this way as well! You are doing a great job! Keep up the good fight! And remember to always love your babies! They are only babies for a small time!!
