There is one thing I am not ashamed to admit: I’m just an okay mom, and I’m okay with that. Motherhood has never been enough for me. I’ve always wanted more out of life, in addition to raising children and being a mother. I’ve always loved working, nurturing great friendships with my girlfriends, being creative, and having alone time. As much as I love my children, I equally love being away from them, and that is okay to admit. When it comes to my kids, they’re not perfect and they’re not good all the time [I wrote about this last year]. They run wild, throw tantrums, and basically disregard anything I say. But overall, they’re pretty good kids. They’re independent, stand their ground, are confident, and don’t take any shit from people.
So to all the mama’s out there who are just an okay mother with okay kids: love yourself. Say it proudly because life is hard, parenting is hard, and we’re all just trying to make it through each day. You’re doing a pretty good job, and that’s okay.
Now onto what we’re wearing! My smocked waist gingham skirt is from Target and literally so comfy. No buttons or zippers and fits like a dream. You can eat 13 tacos and still look good in it. Our tee’s are from one of my favorite small shops, Bee & Mae (kids tee/mom tee). They make the softest shirts and I’ve been a fan since I found their shop a few months ago on Instagram. You can see a few others here, here, and here. Happy Monday!
