real moms-it isn't always pretty

Want the real deal?  Motherhood isn't always pretty and it 'aint for the faint of heart.  I wanted to end the week with a list from what I'll call real life motherhood. [Please note this is not a glamorized mommy blog written for people.com that gushes about the true gifts my children are and how mothering has only made me a more complete human.]

Real moms:
  • drive their kids to school in their pajamas without brushing their hair or teeth
  •  yell
  • switch their kids lunches in the mad dash out the door and are bitter when they have to "fix" the f*#^ up.
  •  need to drink wine (insert alcoholic beverage of choice) to do homework with their children.
  • are exhausted by 9am
  • buy syrup for a class party which contains high fructose corn syrup [gasp.]
  • wonder daily how any of their children will turn out "normal".
These statements are all taken from true stories told by real moms.  Or they are all about me.
Remember, we are all in this together.


  1. It's been that kind of week! Have a great weekend. xoxoxo-d

  2. Please tell me someone in our class didn't chastise you or any other generous mom for syrup with high fructose corn syrup!
