Sometimes motherhood isn’t all that glamourous. Hmm who am I kidding? Most days aren’t all that glamorous. It is easy to pop on the internet and see families living in big exciting cities, doing big exciting things and feel less than thrilled about your own small town surroundings. But truth be told, every Mom, no matter where they are living has to figure out how to handle their day to day. We all have laundry, dishes, bills, crazy kids, sleepless night, etc… In all honesty, I really truly feel like “fun is how you make it, not where you make it” (Thanks Piebald!). Somedays the mundane tasks can get you down though. I know I feel like that sometimes. You try to juggle so much, hoping to get everything done yet you find yourself defeated at the end of the day with a whole lot of nothing finished.
Anyone else feel like this sometimes?
The other day when I was feeling way too house bound for my liking I decided to put aside everything that needed to get done and create some fun for us. It led to an afternoon in the teepee with the girls. Eating lunch, reading stories and making some memories. It wasn’t anything fancy or crazy but it was fun and we had a wonderful afternoon together in our backyard.
