There’s something about having it all together that is really appealing….you know? Being one of those people who always seems to look good, have their hair done, their house clean, their children adorable….? It took me a long time to be okay with the fact that that’s just NOT me! I am much more likely to be unshowered with my hair in a ponytail, wearing at least one piece of clothing I wore to bed the night before…..and I’ve long since given up the battle with my kids! But…I have to admit…I still like to fake it!
What do I mean by fake it? Well….I mean doing little things to make it SEEM like I have it all together. Like getting dressed cute and putting on makeup, despite the fact that I haven’t showered in two days. Or having the majority of my house cleaned up and crossing my fingers that people don’t look in the laundry room, my bedroom, the basement….because they’re disastrous! Or explaining my kids’ disheveled appearance by playing up their creativity and strong will….because it takes the pressure off of me to have them be constantly put together, too!
