The weekend is all about getting things done right? Doing homework (shifting it from the living room rug to the desk) breakfast cinnamon rolls (from a can), packing for NYC next week (pile all favorite shoes in a corner), and sleeping in (not). While I hope to do some of those things, and do them well, I’m not going to beat myself up. I was just chatting with a mom about how much guilt we as moms experience. There’s career guilt, housekeeping guilt, and mom guilt. Pick your guilt, there’s a name for it. I easily feel like an inadequate mom, blogger, stylist and mother. The latter of which has been the biggest (but most rewarding) challenge. Do you feel the same? I know I’m not alone here. Just keeping it real. I like posting pretty pictures of smiling faces but behind it all is real life, silent prayers for help, real challenges and a kid missing a shoe. But I’m not beating myself up for it. I’m sharing one of my favorite quotes: “There’s no way to be a perfect mother and a million ways to be a good one.”
Have a great weekend xx

Ohhh the guilt ??. Too often. But it’s in those moments that God knows I need a little manna, and He is always faithful to give just enough to keep me going! You are one of my greatest inspirations, momma! ??
Ohh love that, such a good reminder that He is faithful
Loved that last quote! Such a challenge to weigh it all. I have two babies, and can only imagine having four! I love your blog, and enjoy every post!
