Sometimes I read blogs and I think, "Wow this lady really has it all together: her house looks amazing, she dresses nice, she bakes, cooks, does crafts, she is like some ubersupermom." Then I start to feel bad about my parenting thinking I should do more and be more since most days I wear comfy clothes, structured projects are rare, and my house looks like a tornado ran through it even if I just cleaned.
I try to be organized, but it just doesn't seem to work. Usually I have all the kids stuff together, but then when it comes to my own stuff I'm a mess. Always trying to find my keys or cell phone. Yesterday after coming home from my mom's house I unloaded all the bags out my car and the kids thinking everything went smoothly. Then this morning my doorbell rang and I looked out to see a man I didn't recognize I opened the door cautiously and he said "I saw this purse laying on the front lawn and figured it belonged to whoever lived here." I had no idea I left my purse after rushing in late and getting everyone ready for bed. I am so grateful that he brought it to my door and everything was still in it. Lately I've been hearing of robberies in the neighborhood, so I feel so lucky that it was still there. Thanks to one kind stranger who made my day:) Now you know at least one mom who is far from having it all together.
