I. Hate. Cooking.
Let me just put that out there from the get go.
Now that we’ve established that core principle, let me tell you why I’m here.
I am embarking on a self-inflicted journey into all things domestic. I want to cook better food for my family. I want to live on a sustainable budget that allows for ample savings. I want a semi structured life that allows for less stress and more family fun. I want every room in my house to be clean at the same time. (That last one may be wishful thinking with 2 toddlers calling the shots.) In short I want the Pinterest-y, super mom, parenting blog heaven we all dream of.
My dilemma? I’m not perfect and life isn’t perfect.
So with my bar set realistically low, I am beginning my journey today. The road will be tough and marred with (hopefully) silent curse words along the way, but I want to share it with you. I want to create a safe haven for all of us that struggle to live up to the Internet ideal of parenting. I may be trying to go a little Pintrest-y, but I will never be the “perfect Pintrest parent.” I am hoping to find a happy medium that works for me and my family. Also, I know myself, and if I don’t put some sort of checks and balances in place, I will not succeed. So you guys are it. My accountability. My fail safe. Don’t let me go this alone.
