    1. Women (and moms) have so much self-guilt and are so self conscious. I really think we’d be a stronger species if we lifted one another up and support each other. No need to shame other people- chances are they’re doing it to themselves in their own head. Sigh.


  1. MUDDY FEET -THE WORST!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    I almost put Peanut butter for the dogs too – or wait, did i? Either way, I feel that.
    So another trip with M to Texas? She’ll be a traveling loving baby.


    1. I just keep a towel on the floor by the back door. At least they’re walking over it once before wandering further into the house. Most of the time I have to tackle Bristol and towel allll the mud off her, though.

      Ugh. M was SUPPOSED to go to Texas with us for the wedding but… I can’t stomach exposing her to germs and viruses. It breaks our hearts but we’re leaving her with grandma and grandpa for the long weekend. I just can’t responsibly take her. Sigh.


    1. No way, girl. There’s got to be some chores out there that you enjoy that I HATE. I just happen to enjoy laundry, lol. We cloth diaper M so it’s a good thing I don’t mind laundry. LOL


  2. Fresh corn in the summer is the absolute best!!! Brussels also make my list. I need to do this prompt. I think these are always so fun! Certainly don’t have time for any of those things either.


  3. Puppy cuddles are the best! I don’t get mom shaming. Like, everyone is just trying to do their best! It’s really heightened since social media. Sounds like March is going to have some great stuff!


    1. I agree. I read something the other day that said our moms and grandmas had a handful of moms to compare themselves to… maybe 5 women from work and 4 neighbors down the street. Moms (and women in general) now have thousands and thousands of other moms to compare themselves to (via social media). No wonder we feel so guilty and self-conscious and shamed all the time. It’s nuts.
