I’m OK with it

It’s taken me almost 17 years of being a mom to accept some things that are considered big no-nos in the parenting community. Society doesn’t like to accept us as we are; busy, tired, worn down, selfless. I’m here to say while lip gloss and heels are nice sometimes Here Is The Real Me.

  • I’m OK with leaving the house in yoga pants or comfy sweatsI'm OK with you I am
  • I’m OK with skipping girls night out to cuddle on sofa with husband to watch Parenthood
  • I’m OK with not buying myself new brown leather calf high boots to get a pair of Twinkle Toes for Shae
  • I’m OK with not being the perfect mom all the time but when it counts the most
  • I’m OK with not being a career driven woman
  • I’m OK with not knowing how to start the lawn mower
  • I’m OK with waiting too long between hair colorings
  • I’m OK with passing on a fun exciting event because it doesn’t fit our schedule
  • I’m OK with driving a minivan because we fit comfortably in it, it’s paid off and I feel safe
  • I’m OK with admitting my kids get on my nerves somedays and I want lock myself in my room

As a mom, non-mom, dad or other, what are you OK with. Remember these aren’t faults, they are decisions made to be happier as a whole instead of putting on a front that we can’t keep up with.

    Love everything about this post. You are my kinda mom! No wonder we are friends 🙂

  2. I’m with you.

  3. I was pretty shy growing up. It wasn’t until I was in my 20’s that I realized that it all stemmed from a fear of saying something dumb or offensive in front of people. I got over that once I realized that it was OK if I said something dumb, and I’d just apologize if I said something offensive. After a few months of thinking that way I just managed to break the cycle. Seems like many problems just disappear once you simply stop letting them be problems.

    • That s completely true I’ve gotten to a point where I’m comfortable with myself and if someone else isn’t then they could just keep moving, the people who stick around and accept your quirks and all after all are your true friends.
