I saw a title of an article that referred to mothering not being a hobby…. Ya’ll it’s not a hobby to be perfected!!! I didn’t read the article but I loved the idea of the title… Because sometimes I feel like so many moms are wearing themselves out trying to give their kids a “Pinterest Perfect” party or experience, that they miss the mothering completely.. Is it about us or them?
It’s taken me a long time and a lot if mistakes to realize, but my kids just really want me…and my attention and time…. Don’t get me wrong, I need great ideas too, and Pinterest and the Internet are a great place to get them… But anything to an extreme at least for me can be paralyzing… Rest in the fact this Mother’s Day weekend that your kids love you… Mistakes and all! Not the decorations at their party… #idontwanttobepinterestperfect.
