Not perfect but happy.

Target run with this girl!

.

I know I’m not the perfect mom by any means but sometimes I have to pat myself on the back for “small victories”.

.

See that jar of peanuts in her hand? See how excited she looks?

.

Yeah, she’s excited about honey roasted peanuts, the way some kids get excited about candy!

.

I’m pretty proud of this. She was seriously ok passing by all the cookies, candy, and holiday treats, because she had these peanuts in hand.

.

We need to stop beating ourselves up so much trying to be perfect and trying to prove to the world how perfect we are.

.

This is unhealthy and unrealistic.

.

We all know perfect does not exist l, yet we keep trying and we keep searching.

.

For now, I am happy because I have stopped looking for perfect in pretty much ever area of life, but most importantly, the area of motherhood.

.

Beaming because my kid picked peanuts over candy and I could care less who I do or do not impress with that information.
