the (wo)man behind the curtain

After reading a blog entry from one of my favorite bloggers, Stephanie, I was provoked to write one similar.

I completely agree that it's prevalent and tempting to create a "my perfect world" type blog. Who wouldn't want one? That's the nice part about being the author of the blog, you control the content.
I tend to follow a more light-hearted trend on this blog, simply because my Dad always told me to be careful what you put in writing, as it's permanent and I've continued to keep my blog public.

The reality is I'm a young, married, working mom. I work more than I want to. I see Zoe way less than I want to. I see Ryan even less than I see Zoe. Some days it's hard. Some days we come home and spend the evening cuddled on the couch, because mom needs the snuggle time. I have driven all the way to daycare on my lunch hour, just to give Zoe a hug, because I missed her so much and I needed to see her that very minute.

We spend most Saturdays in pj's until almost noon. Which is very opposite of my house growing up. I rarely make my bed (although I've never done that). We don't clean up Zoe's room every night.

Most nights I choose my scrapbook desk over the dirty dishes in the sink. 

I would wear my yoga pants and Ryan's giant BYU sweatshirt every day of my life, if it was socially acceptable. If you stop by unannounced after 7pm, that's most likely what I'll be wearing.

Cereal or oatmeal for dinner are always options.

Zoe throws tantrums comparable to my own as a child. I'm certain my parents secretly laugh when I tell them she's Dr. Jekyll & Mr. Hyde some days.

Life is not perfect and that's great.
If it was, we'd all be bored.
( I say that, because I'm constantly trying to remind myself)

I've blogged a little too long and now need to get ready for my day. 

Thanks to all my blog readers. 
I don't hate comments and I wish to hear from more of you.
Drop a note, I don't bite:)
