I think I may be mom challenged

So I'm going to confess some things here. First, as much as I say I try to avoid passing judgment on other moms well believe it or not I m not perfect after all (my family will get a smirk out of that statement) and sometimes I do judge you crunchy, pintersty people. Why?

Because damnit I m just not cool like that.I'm seriously craft challenged, I can't cook worth a damn, I have a brown thumb, I'm OCD with a I don't give a shit about the mess attitude from time to time (if you don't believe be me ask my husband), I don't stress about organic and natural food and products. My idea of working out is chasing my kids around the backyard (I have probably even counted that once or twice when I d be in a workout stretch). I don't make or create anything cool.

So as I went through this list of "mom" type things I realized I must be mom challenged. My mom must have been giving those lady lessons when I was outside playing ball as a kid. Sometimes I think maybe I should learn some of these womanly mom things then I think no. Can't teach an old dog new tricks. I will just continue on being mom challenged. It s really not that lonely of a road.

How are you mom challenged?


  1. Haha! I am right there with you! i have realized recently that it is perfectly okay not to be the "perfect" mom! Heck most of those "perfect" moms aren't really perfect...they just pretend to be!

  2. I may not be "mom challenged" because I can cook and decorate to a confident degree, but I have to be honest with you. I look at all the stuff on Pinterest and think to myself, "What the heck? Where do these women find all this time? I must be doing something wrong!" I mean, I have NEVER spent more than two hours making a birthday cake for my kid, and that includes baking time! I probably could build a clubhouse if I wanted to, but that's what you call a handy man for if you don't have a hubby who is hammer and nail savvy. As for all that other cute crafty stuff, nope, sorry, not in the schedule. Tina Bietler-One Tired Working Mommy
