Airing my dirty (clean) laundry


The other day, I shared about my in-laws coming over via Instagram. I even shared this picture of the mess our room was in. I sent that same picture to my mom, and she said, "you should write a post about this."

So, here I am mom! This one's for you. 

Often times we feel this need to have our crap together. It's a sad truth, but it is what it is, and we really do. We feel like we have to look and act a certain way. It could be because of social media, it could be because of pop culture, and it could also be just the way we were raised. Either way, the pressure is real.

I am here to tell you though, that as a mom of two kiddos, I know that the reality is sometimes you have to prioritize what gets done and what doesn't. I don't have a nanny, an assistant, a maid, or even a gardener. I run this ship, and sometimes it gets messy. The dishes in the sink are last on my list, right next to shaving my legs, but eventually it'll get done. 

Give yourself grace. Forget what you see on Instagram, or on TV. Life isn't perfect, we can only be in one place at a time, and really who cares if your house is a mess? No one else is home all day except for you, so you're the only one that will know. Pull a me, and fifteen minutes before your husband (or your in-laws) get to your place, stash everything in your closet. Make your bed, and spritz some lavender spray everywhere. Ain't no thang girlfriend. Do you. Do you. 


  1. Totes agree. Do you! And that stuff a closet bit? That's my every day game girlfran! I say I'm an organizer over a cleaner!

  2. As a first time mom with a 6 month old baby, I struggle to keep everything in life in order, and look to bloggers and their social media outlets and wonder how they keep it together! Thanks for this post, I don't feel that bad that my bedroom looks like a war zone :)
