I have a feeling that this particular post is going to be very popular with a lot of moms out there.

It seems like a lot of parents these days are in a rat race to nowhere. And by that, I mean they’re maybe a little too concerned with image and status instead of focusing on the important parts of parenting. That’s just my opinion.

Let’s see what this mom had to say.

Some days I feel like my feet don’t even hit the ground. ⠀ Bills have to be paid, then money is short. ⠀ I need to work, then kids are sick. ⠀ I need time to myself but I really want some quality time with my family. ⠀ I miss my girlfriends but can’t find the time to have a quality dinner. ⠀ I clean my house non-stop but it always is disheveled. ⠀ I feel like I am flinging through the air and more times than not I forget who is holding me. ⠀ God sees what’s above me and below me and if I just trust him I could enjoy the ride. ⠀ I found this picture of my son and smiled at how blissful he looked. He wasn’t scared, he wasn’t anxious, he wasn’t trying to figure out how to get down. He trusts us. Fully. He was able to smile in the unknown. ⠀ It’s funny how much you can learn from a child. ⠀ I encourage myself and you too, to let go, trust God, and even giggle ❤️ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ 🙏 #trustgodsplan #letgoandfly #soaring #ig_writer #ontheblogtoday💻 #thatauthenticfeeling #ig_motherhood #torikelleyphotography #familyphotography #familyisthecenter #mothering #passion #momssupportingmoms #relax #growingeveryyear #littleandbrave #toddlermomlife #learningthroughplay #learningtolovemyself #imsobloggingthis #bloggerlife #motherhoodbloggers

This post was written by a mom named Kacie Duncan.

“I don’t buy organic anything.

My kid drinks Winn Dixie brand whole milk.

Seldom a day goes by that my son doesn’t eat a cookie, a Little Debbie cake, or a pack of gummies (that counts as fruit, right?).

My kid doesn’t wear Boutique brand bubbles or designer shoes.

We roll up to day care in hand-me-downs and consignment specials. Oh and Cat and Jack head to toe (where you at Target mamas!?)

You can’t walk through my front door without tripping over a toy train or a member of the Paw Patrol.

We let our kid have screen time. Momma and Daddy like screens, too (Sup Disney+).

If you sit on my couch, there is a 100% chance you will leave with dog hair on your behind and get licked in the face by a Toy Poodle named Loretta Lynn.

🥄 Some days you have to pick your battles ⠀ ⠀ Today I lost🤣 Yes, those are about 20 plastic spoons in his yogurt. Yes I let it go. It was one of those days that as long as he wasn’t putting himself in physical danger, I was good with it. Mommin’ ain’t easy ⠀ #pickyourbattles #toddlerhood ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ #ontheblogtoday #thatauthenticfeeling #inspiremyinstagram #motherhoodalive #mommysbaby #mommyblogger #documentingmotherhood #bloggerbabes #bloggerperks #candidchildhood #dailyparenting #letthembelittle #childhoodunplugged #letthekids #thesweetlifeunscripted #littlefierceones #motherhoodrising #momentsofmine #happymoment #morningslikethese #liveauthentic #happynow #thatsdarling #ilovebeingamommy #momboss #mommyandme #documentyourdays #littleandbrave

My laundry is never caught up, my To-Do list is never empty, and I hardly am ever faithful to my New Years resolutions.

Guess what? I am okay with all of that. Every bit of it. And you should be, too.

This is the phase of life we are in mommas. It’s crazy busy, full of mess, some stress, and all of the rest.

Still, we show up everyday. Mommin’ hard then crashing even harder at 9 p.m. after watching an episode of Grey’s Anatomy.

I don’t want to be in the ‘perfect mom club.’ They probably don’t have fun anyway (plus, I need my wine). Perfection is overrated. I’m happy with myself and growing everyday. I challenge you to do the same too.

Sincerely,

A Momma Like You”

I like where this mom is coming from. It seems like there’s so much competition out there to “keep up with the Joneses” for parents, and this mom clearly isn’t playing that game.
