We all have our Pinterest Mom moments. Some more than others. You might fix your kids a beautiful, healthy meal (whether or not they eat it doesn't matter...the pictures look damn good). Your kitchen might be spotless (don't go into the living room though). Is your outfit on point? (Who cares that your closet is spread across your bed?)
Maybe you have your Pinterest Mom "thing." You know, that area where you hit the Awesome Level more often than not. Maybe feeding your kids organic, whole foods is priority. I have a friend who prioritizes a clean house. Maybe you get up and do full hair/makeup every day. That's cool.
But can we all agree that no one is a Pinterest Mom in every area 100% of the time? It's a Mom Reality. Something's gotta give.
So here are a few tongue-in-cheek examples of Pinterest Mom vs Mom Reality.
Pinterest Mom: Feeds her kids organic, vegan, healthy meals and snacks at scheduled times.
Mom Reality: OMG FINE! Eat the piece of store bought bread. I JUST FED YOU. Don't think I'm cooking again so soon.
Pinterest Mom: Dresses herself and her kids in coordinated, spotless clothing even to sit around the house.
Mom Reality: One kid's shirt is inside out but at least he dressed himself. Crap, is that shirt dirty? Whatever, we have to leave...where are my flipflops?
Pinterest Mom: Clean house where each room is worthy of a magazine photo.
Mom Reality: What are you eating? Where did you find that? When did we buy raisins last? Whatever, I'm not cooking again so soon.
Pinterest Mom: Barely breaks a sweat as she completes her morning yoga at sunrise.
