Remember the book, “What to Expect When you Are Expecting”?
This website is all about “What You Never Expected and People Were Too Embarrassed or Sleep-Deprived to Write A Book About because OMG Who Has The Time?”
It’s the untold story of Parenting. The tantrums in supermarkets. The power struggles over basic rules like “don’t eat your buggers” and “no you can’t run naked outside.” The bedtime stories you’ve repeated until you want to scream. The messy living rooms which you no longer care about, because after you’ve changed a diaper and eaten regurgitated cereal your idea of Gross forever changes.
It’s #RealLife — unedited in all its stark and incredibly beautiful glory.
Parenting will never be perfect. It is messy, emotional, and incredibly exhausting. The most amazing thing is that despite all of that, MOMS SHOW UP. We lock ourselves in the bathroom, have a good cry, then march right out and do our best.
And you know what? Your best is awesome. You are awesome. And your kids are too.
Once we drop the standards and the idea of what our life should be, then we can start loving and celebrating the life we have.
Come here often for a laugh, a good cry, or a group hug. You’re always welcome here.
