My secret to how I do "it" all

Monday, April 10, 2017

Never doubt a mother. 
She can carry a screaming toddler,  
two gallons of milk, 
talk on her cell phone and
 still slap you for looking at her crazy.



I can't stop laughing at this quote, it is so funny and so real!! Lately I have had people ask me, "how do you do it all fatty?". You have three kids, you're a wife, you cook, you have time to workout, you blog, you have your fitness thing..how? The answer is very simple,  I don't . Truth is, my house is a mess 90% of the time. There is usually a pile of laundry that needs to be folded or washed. I love cooking, but costco pizza is also our jam! I usually remember that Noah is in charge of snacks at preschool the day of! I am totally winning haha. I bribe my kids often because #youdowhatyougottado and we all end up happy! 
Oh, and I eat a lot of chocolate and ice cream :)

Somedays I am on survival mode and others I feel like super mom! 
I think we all do it, we just do "it" differently. We are all super stars in our children's eyes. We are their biggest heroes. Don't let someone else's strength make you feel less of a mom. I wish I was a cleaning freak, a baker, a craft monster and other things...but I'm not! 
And guess what? That is OKAY, because I am a whole lot of other great things! And so are YOU!

  18. I'm right there in the weeds with you mama. Everyone always thinks I have it all together and I'm the farthest thing from it. I'm currently looking at 3 baskets of laundry waiting to be folded from Saturday (it is Wednesday). Oops. xoxo

  19. Thank you so much for sharing! I'm struggle with the whole "I can't do it all" so it was perfect timing to read this.

  20. Yes! I used to drive myself crazy with the notion that everything had to be perfect and that I had to do it all. Once I accepted that it's going to be okay for things to be messy and chaotic, life became so much more enjoyable. <3
