Eating Crackers in the Bed - I am a shitty parent and you might be too.

Recently I recovered from a cold that had me in bed for a few days and nights, just sleeping.  Earaches, sore throat, and headache and just generally feeling yucky.  It wasn’t how I had expected to spend my weekend for sure.

Sadly, or maybe not, when I don’t feel good it prompts me to make changes.  I started thinking about the blog and should I change the name.  Changing my name on Twitter and Instagram as I try to move away from the glitter that once was Supermom.

Know what I mean?

I tried to leave the blogging world but I listened to my peeps.  They wouldn’t LEAVE me alone.

Then I got the best email from a PR company I had recently worked with saying, "You have more to say than you think. Keep posting. All of life is funny, strange and wonderful! :)".

So my friends didn’t want me to leave.  I didn’t want to continue to be Supermom.  I wanted to be myself.  I want you to know that it’s okay if you are a shitty parent.  You probably aren’t but I know I think I am a shit parent at least three times a day.  Possibly four or five times if I’ve been drinking.

The new blog, which isn’t named yet, will be all about me, raw, just the truth with some sarcasm.  I may cuss and I may not.  Ha ha.  No, there will be cussing.  Telling you there wouldn’t be would be misleading and remember the “RAW” Michelle is all about keeping it real.

A place for all the bad parents to unite in one place!  At a place to be named at a later date.

It’s okay to have an off day and not even look at Pinterest for a week or even a month.  It’s okay to not feed them a hot dinner!!  It’s okay to let them not brush their teeth before bed.  It’s okay if they are dirty and don’t want to take a bath.  I promise they aren’t going to end up in therapy, well, I don’t know if I can promise that, I just know it won’t be because I didn’t try to be the best mom they’ve ever had.

Give a gal a break, I just had this brilliant idea over the weekend.

What would you like to see on the new blog?  Comment below and let me know.
