I have been pondering a few things lately. There were a few blogs I used to read that I no longer do anymore, and the main reason I don't read them is that the people presented themselves in a way that was untrue. I am not saying they are liars, but that they felt this weird need to post things in a light that was unrealistic and not a real representation of their life. One blog, the women claims to be all super crunchy, cloth diapers, organic food, etc...but the kids are always eating fast food and wearing disposables. See, I don't give a rat's arse if you want to feed them fast food breakfast, lunch and dinner, and let them wear paper towels as diapers, it is really not my business, but then don't misrepresent your self as a crunchy organic cloth diaper-er. The people that should matter, that see you every day, they know if you really keep your house clean and if you really feed your family the food you say you do and if you really are so super stinkin duper.
Now, I am not saying that I am not guilty of this sometimes, I am sure I have done it. I do have cloth diapers for Teagan, and she does wear them...however in the last month, she has not...did I tell you guys that? I have been tired and really just did not want to deal with the laundry...so, well, I didn't. Food wise, we really do try to eat well here, and I do try to cook for the family. Do my kids eat junk, why yes they do sometimes. Do they eat fast food, honestly, not really. Occasionally is where we are at with the dreaded fast food, I believe the last time was on our way home from RI at the end of August when we stopped at a rest area that had a Mc D's...and yes, they ate it, even Teagan scarfed down some nuggets and fries. I wouldn't anticipate them eating it again anytime soon, it is just not something we think to get and I would rather stop and get a meal at a restaurant for them, even though we don't do that much either. Am I a perfect mom...um, absolutely not, and I hope that comes across in my blog posts. I screw up...a lot, and I apologize, a LOT. I am also not the perfect wife, trust me the hubby would be first to dispel that rumor :) I can be super nasty and critical, I can be overbearing and controlling and I run things my way and my way only, something I also think you may have concluded in reading here. My husband and I fight, in fact yesterday we had a real blowout, but hey, we are human, and I hope that comes across too. I am not the perfect employee either, although I would say that I come closer there than anywhere else since I am a workaholic.
So....drop all the BS and illusions, really why do you care? Who cares if you really sat on your butt all day and watched TV and ate chips, tell us about it, we can all relate, it happens. Why tell stories? Why be so fake? Be you!
