Haters Gonna Hate

There are several different types of mommy blogs.  Crafty ones, kitchen ones, God ones, working momones and then the uber angry ones where they seem to hate being a mom, hate their children and generally hate their lives.  I’m not going to link to examples of this type of blog, because I’m not trying to point fingers, but in reading a blog like this recently I became really concerned that maybe my blog may come off that way.

 I am far from the perfect mother.  I’m not shy about whining on this blog (or twitter) (or Instagram) (or a variety of other social media locations) that being a mom can be hard.  But I have to say, I hope that no one who reads my blog thinks that I hate being a mother.  Or that I hate my kids.  Because I really, really, really don’t hate it.  

Everyone has good and bad days and sometimes on the bad days you just need to vent.  I get that.  I mean, that’s what Twitter is for, right?  But I don’t get entire blogs dedicated to why being a mom makes you miserable.

So I guess the moral of this blog post is just to say, I love being a mom.  I love my girls.  I have good days and I have bad, but I hope that no one ever stumbles across my blog and thinks, wow, that mom is really angry and really hates her life.  Because I don’t.  Promise.

    Lucy has been smiling almost since the day she was born. According to Lila the most important person in the world is Mama, she lights up when you walk into the room. While it is a tiring and relentless job, there is no doubt that you are a good mom and that you love your girls more than anything in the world.
