1. Sometimes my kids are SO cute and affectionate that my heart feels like it's bursting from love. I can't help but share their cuteness by taking pictures and posting on social media.
|I mean, really? Look at how he puts his arm around her!|
|This picture was taken one week prior to the meltdown described above.|
3. Sometimes our house is super clean and tidy (read: when we are expecting people to come over). Other times, (read: most of the time) at least one bathroom has toothpaste spit all over the mirror, there are hair ties/barrettes/matchbox cars/legos/baby dolls/stuffed animals/fake food/real food/hair all over the floor, in most rooms of the house. The book shelf has baskets tipped over on the floor (see #2 - sometimes I just send the kids in to get the books ready so I can try and read to them and that happens). There is probably a pile of clean laundry on my side of the bed, which is not made.
Bottom line? I'm not perfect. No human is. Sure, we share mostly the happy/best looking pictures of our life. I think most of us realize that the majority of people aren't very excited to share the not so perfect aspects of their life. I think that's different than actually SEEING someone share they not so perfect aspects of their life.
But you know what? You try your best. Every day. It's OK to fail at something, especially if you are trying something completely new to you. While we strive for perfection, we all need to really know that it's not possible, and that's OK.
