I uploaded the following picture, not my best selfie, to Instagram the other night with the caption below. The response was out of this world! So many mom's agreeing, feeling the same, and thanking me for "being real." Thank you for the love and support. I guess what I wanted to let everyone know when I posted was that we're real people, just like all of you, and we love and care for our family as much as we do our craft. We're thankful to you for letting us share it, and so many other aspects of our lives!
"ce) had put a remote toy car on my head while I played on the floor with Sophie, before I could utter "nooo!" He reved the tires and tangled my hair onto the tires of the toy car. Then he freaked out and did it again! So naturally, I screamed because it hurt and because I had a flashback to the time i was 8 and got gum stuck in my hair and my mom just chopped it off! 😭 I yelled, loudly 😔. I went to the bathroom and cried after James helped me untangle my hair. After a solid three minutes of ugly Kim K crying, I noticed what a hot mess I was in the mirror. I saw my lipstick had smeared on my t-shirt, my hair was tore up, and the collar of my brand new shirt was stretched out from trying to nurse Sophie in a non-nursing shirt 🙄 all day. I felt the tears bubble up one more time for feeling guilty about yelling, for having a hurt head, and at seeing what a crazy I looked like, but then I stopped. I saw the beauty of the moment written proudly on my chest. "Mama." Thats right, Im a mama, and not all days are roses and butterflies, my lipstick doesnt last all day and my kids are sometimes traviesos, and sometimes I freak out. But its all a part of the expirience. The ugly tears came pouring out soon after I realized how lucky I was to even have these problems, and the bitter sweetness of having little kids who will grow up one day and forget about all the mini tantrums YOU had! Chente knocked on the door and appologized in his sweet three year old voice. My heart was filled with love and joy and the fistfull of hair I lost didnt matter anymore. I dont know if it counts as the worst mom momment, but its pretty high up there for me. Whats been your worst? Tag a friend who can relate! Lets grow the #notsoperfect mom club 😂! Or tag us in your best "mama" moment selfie and share your story. Let it out girl! Let it out! Its been a long day for all of us! "
