Truth Tuesday


A couple of months back, I noticed women sharing “truth moments” surrounding motherhood on social media. While I supported the cause through likes and comments, I inherently thought I couldn’t join without being a mom. That thought plagues me often, the one where I think I don’t belong because I’m still waiting for that right of passage as a grown woman. It feels similar to when we wait for our first bra; you don’t want to be the last. You don’t want to be left behind. I realize that is a dangerous and unhealthy road to travel, but never the less the thought sneaks in often.

So, as just me, a women, here are my truths for this Tuesday.

// I use paper towels. I know the environment hates me but, until I have my own washer/dryer, I’m not sitting on filthy rags for a week.

// Sometimes I workout four days a week, sometimes it’s only once. When life is hectic or overwhelming I let it go and pick back up the next week…it’s been a long winter, ok! πŸ™‚

// Long division? Forget about it. I don’t remember how to do it by hand anymore!

// I actually do enjoy cooking, but a week long meal plan still alludes me. Despite my best efforts, cereal or eggs wind up being dinner towards the end of the week.

// I enjoy watching television and becoming invested in the characters lives. Jordan and I feel like we are basically a part of theΒ Braverman clan.

// On certain occasions when editing photos, I’ve used the Photoshop patch tool to remove breakouts on my face.

// When I was younger, I used a notebook to jot down every Baby-sitters Club book I read to make sure I didn’t miss or re-read one. I will still watch the movie if it happens to be on TV!

  1. Ha!!!! I love this. Man. I second you on the paper towels (I use way too much for as environmentally conscious as I try to be) and my biggest thing lately has been utilizing the iPad or the TV for one too many episodes of Monkey George so I can attempt to wash dishes (and now that I think about it, those have been sitting in the sink all week, too!) >_<

    1. I’m glad I’m not the only one that uses paper towels! I watched plenty of tv when I was little and I think I turned out ok?! Whatever gets us through this winter! πŸ™‚

  2. There are days as a mom that I feel totally defeated. And days that I feel like the luckiest girl in the world because I’m blessed with two healthy kids & a husband who places me on a pedestal. I don’t deserve it. Also, I appreciate the input of my friends who don’t have kids; it offers a different perspective and helps keep my thoughts well rounded.

    1. I can only imagine that being a mother during this age of social media adds extra pressure. If only our mothers had to compete with pinterest parties.

      Thank you for sharing your truths πŸ™‚

  3. Haha, I remember reading the Baby-Sitters Club! It was one of my favorite book series’ back in the day!! And for sure, Photoshop is great for removing any unsightly blemishes. πŸ™‚
