I’ve been working on a blog post for about two months now; battling writer’s block every sentence of it. This is not that post.
This post is just about coming as I am. As it should be. I’d love to be that Pinterest mom, but we have yet to do a Valentine’s craft (I printed off heart coloring pages, close enough?), my home is in a constantly disheveled renovating state, and dry shampoo always has my back these days.
But this obsessive planner has learned a lot in the past two years of being a mom. Letting go and accepting life unplanned has been freeing. I’m not all the way there…i still have a planner, a dry erase calendar, and TWO phone calendars ruling my days, but I no longer feel guilty that Maggie knows the entire Daniel Tiger theme song or that I have no idea how much my youngest sleeps.
My Moms group has a theme this year – “No More Perfect”. Which I think is just perfect for these crazy, fun-filled days of young parenthood. Living in God’s grace to be who I am right now and work on perfection when I meet Him 🙂
