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.
