here's the truth for ya: this mom thing is a whole lot less glamorous than mommy-bloggers make it out to be. most days i don't make it out of my pajamas, let alone the house, and i would tell you how often i shower, but i truly don't want to disgust you. my child takes up just about every second of my day, and any time spent away from her is usually spent thinking about her and how i can be a better mom to her. my hair is piled in a messy bun more often than not. my nail polish is always chipped. the past couple days i have eaten girl scout cookies for breakfast and i'm okay with that.
my days are fairly ordinary. we watch sesame street and we play with babies and cars and i make macaroni and cheese and watch as ava throws it on the floor and laughs. she is a peek-a-boo master and she loves to play tag and the highlight of our day is going on a walk around the neighborhood in her pink car. we are ordinary and i really like that.
my sixth resolution is to celebrate the ordinary.
the trips to costco, like this one. the shared bowl of ice cream before bed time. the bubble baths, the belly-laughs, the late night pillow talk, all the things that make me really glad to be alive.
