Hello bad moms – and other humans
You can call me A.
I’m here because I’m a bad mom. Okay, I’m not really sure what makes a “bad mom”, but I’m 100% sure I’m not a perfect mom. I read, follow, and obsess over all the perfect moms out there on instagram, facebook, real live, etc. I’ve read all the articles “How to have the perfect birth plan”, “How I manage 5 kids and keep a clean house” “How to make healthy snacks that your toddler will eat” and somehow, I still can’t figure it all out.
I have two kids. Boy and girl. Exactly 2 years apart at 3.5 and 1.5 respectively. I also work full-time. And (confession) I LOVE my job. I am a committed employee and normally spend 9+ hours a day at work — and then work more after the kids go to bed. I work in the technology industry, where it is mostly male dominated. I push myself hard at work to show those men that I CAN do it all.
Sometimes I try too hard to be perfect and now I’ve started this blog to admit that I am not perfect. I’m actually not that great of a mom. My kids don’t listen to a word I say. My sink is normally full of dishes and the laundry is never ever done. They’ve eaten more fast food in their lives already than I’d like to admit. They argue with each other all the time and it drives me insane. But you know what, I love them. And I tell them and show them that I love them every single day. And that’s the best I can do.
I like other stuff besides my kids and work. I enjoy fitness and working out (it’s the only thing that keeps me sane). I majored in Fine Art in college, so I love art, illustrations, and photography. I also love to read. Mostly silly romance novels, but I’ve kind of enjoyed a few business books in my years.
