Hello, fellow moms of the internet!
I want to personally introduce myself. (Ya know, as personally as I can on the world wide web.) My name is Lacey and I am a wife and mother of two beautiful children. (See adorable photo above) I’m a sarcastic homemaker, laundry hater, scatter-brained entrepreneur, mom-tographer and brutally honest mommy blogger.(See this blog.) I (attempt) to run a small photography business (check it out here) and still keep up with the day to day demands of raising two small children and running a (semi) functional home. Within the realms of this blog you will find information on finances, wife life, and no holds barred, real life, parenting.
Being a mom and a wife isn’t always smiles, well behaved kids, endless romance and Pinterest worthy dinners. AND ITS OK THAT ITS NOT!! Sometimes it’s tears, tantrums, (the kids even have some too) messy rooms, sticky floors, disagreements and then McDonalds drive thru for dinner. Fast food and a bad day doesn’t make you a bad mom, it makes you human! In today’s tech-social society we hold moms to this supernatural and completely unrealistic level of perfection that no human can attain. We have to stop it! There’s are days where I wake up early, make the kids breakfast, print out developmental worksheets, make nutritional lunches (actually without the microwave), clean the house, do some laundry, make a 3 course dinner and get the kids bathed and in bed before 9pm. Then there are other days where my time is consumed with consoling a moody toddler (wonder where she gets that **eyeroll**) and keeping tabs on a rambunctious 5 year old. But, what remains the same at the end of those 2 very different days is that my love and dedication to my husband and my children is unwavering. I never want my children to go a day without knowing and believing in their hearts that their mother loves them with all she has. (even if she could do without that attitude) So, be nice to your fellow mommies; and let them know that being human isn’t a fault, it’s just being real.
Until next time, may the tantrums be short and your eyeliner be even
P.S. Your coffee is in the microwave, You’re welcome.
