Everything is not perfect. My kids are not always put first. Craig and I are not always rolling around on the floor with kiddo’s laughing.
Craig doesn’t always understand my blogging and etsy shop. And in all honesty, he doesn’t always support it. There are times he’s my biggest supporter, but then there are times where he brings me down. Yes, we, as a whole, are not perfect.
Assumptions are often made about positive blogs. That assumption being, “oh my, she lives a perfect life”. It’s not true. You have to remember, you only see what the writer wants you to. I could blog about the annoying things that happened during the day, and the millions of tantrums and frustrations we had. And I am sure a lot of people would relate to that and possible enjoy reading it, knowing they are not a lone. Instead, I reflect on the positive aspects of our day. I guess I just assume everyone knows that we had the tantrums and frustrations, but found joy and excitement despite those. Instead of throwing MORE negative energy into out already negative world, I’m trying to convey positivity. Hoping to help someone find the positive in there overly negative day.
For every picture you see of smiles and play, know that there are hundreds un-captured images of tantrums, arguments and pure laziness.
Life is a balancing act. A race. I balance every thing the best I know how. Each day is different. For me, it’s who (or what) needs me the most at that point in time. Some days the computer wins that race, other days the kids win it. Rarely does laundry win, but eventually, everything(everyone) gets there spotlight. First Cup of Coffee is in first place, followed closely by Checking Email. OH WAIT. They’re both passed up by Dirty Diaper. and Here comes Tantrum Number 1. First Cup of Coffee seems to be lagging, but pulling steadily ahead.
