I am The Real Mom. And I am sure you are a real mom too:-) A real mom embraces their imperfections and even laughs at the pitfalls of parenting. My hope is to share about my family and how a real family lives. It won’t be all smiles and sunshine but it is life.
Now to meet my wonderful family:
First is my awesome husband who is, well, awesome. I would never have married a man who was anything less than awesome;-) He works outside the home to provide for our small family and provides endless entertainment. He likes to make a mess in the kitchen and drink lots of coffee. He is also very handsome and swoons me with him singing. I love him and he loves me!
Next we have my oldest child, Nug. She is a little piece of spunk and a dash of stubborn. Make that a dollop of stubborn. Sometimes she makes me want to pull out my hair and eat chocolate, but I love her. She gives the sweetest hugs and kisses. And has a laughter that is contagious. She may only be 19 months but she has changed the world.
Duder. What can I say about him? He is the cutest 7 month old little boy I know! He still gets up during the night to eat, although one look at him and you can tell he isn’t hurtin’ for food. He likes to poop-out his diapers and smiles at everyone. He is his daddy’s son and has won many-a-lady’s heart!
Finally me. The Real Mom. I am a stay-at-home mother of two. I have tried to do it all but have failed numerous times. And when I tried to do it all I became a not-so-good mother and wife. Once I embraced the imperfections of me and understood that motherhood is a journey, not a formula that I need to follow, I found happiness in what I do. Laughter is my key and I do it a lot:-)
