What I’ve learned from Pinterest.

In Food, Life, Organization on September 12, 2012 at 4:02 am

That I am the MOST unorganized and uncreative mother out there. Anybody else feel the same way? Don’t get me wrong, I absolutely love Pinterest. But who am I kidding here? I mean, does anybody else wonder if these mothers/bloggers/superwomen really have a life? Take here this example….

Really?

I mean, Sophie is lucky if I remember to put jelly on her PB&J. So, to make all you mothers feel better (and I only have 1 child)…I have compiled some pictures that I’m sure no one would repin. 😉

The well, organized laundry room. Sans cat liter on the floor.

My laundry?

Sweaty, gym clothes that I actually laid out to dry first. Just be happy they aren’t wadded up in the floor.

The well organized living room, complete with relaxing fireplace and neutral colors.

I don’t even have AC, much less a fancy fireplace…or mounted TV. My child would be in that fireplace.

Here is my living room…you’re welcome.

A beautiful bed for a little girl.

Sophie’s bed.

LOOK! Complete with perfect mom and child. She looks so patient, teaching her child.

Unlike myself, who is usually fed up by round 10 of trying to actually count to 10 without skipping each number after 5. Which then I’m like, FINE, don’t learn to count. Then I feel guilty. Don’t judge me too harshly. My childs room?

I didn’t even take time to turn the flash on.

Toy storage.

Our toys.

Well, organized, OCD type pantry.

Oh, I’m sure there are some empty food boxes in there.

So THERE you have it, does that make you feel better? I’m embracing my lack of organizational skills. Or maybe I’m just having a really bad day. Either way, we’re enough as mothers, just the way we are. We are raising children who will one day contribute to society. Having colored, coordinated pantry baskets isn’t so important now, is it? We only have 20 or so years with our children, we have the rest of that time to have an organized, perfect home. Until then, create messes and for Heaven’s sake don’t cut their sandwiches into fish.

  1. It’s called Organized Chaos. It may not look pretty, but it’s definitely real life living. You go girl!

  2. I love this. No, don’t be embarrassed, I bet your little girl has a ball every day with you.
