You know those mums that seem to be able to just whip up some homemade goodness for their little angels all before breakfast – you know…Stepford Mothers. Their house is perfect, their kids are perfect, their husbands are perfect, their budgets are perfect, their pets are perfect and they love their mother in law (actually my MIL was a beautiful woman). Well I’ve got something to tell you……come in closer…..shhhhhh…..they’re not – they just don’t always share their epic fails with the world!
You see that’s where I’m different. It’s not that I don’t want to hide my epic fails from the world, it’s just that generally my epic fails happen in broad daylight for all to see – so I don’t bother hiding them (remember the trip at work, the slip on the rocks ending in fractured spine, etc – just go back in my posts….its full of epic fails). I figure if by sharing my epic fails I can say ‘me too’ to another mum who feels like she is the only one that isn’t perfect then my epic fails aren’t going to waste. So I have decided to share some of my epic fails with you today….enjoy!
EPIC FAIL #1 – Gracefully overcoming my fear of bugs
EPIC FAIL #2 – Doing a ‘duck face’ pose
EPIC FAIL #3 – Not looking like The Griswalds when going camping
EPIC FAIL #4 – Healthy school snacks
Apparently I’m not a Stepford Wife who can bake flawlessly every time…who knew!!!
In fact today’s attempt at brownies have me crumbling in frustration,
and oat bites have left a sour taste in my mouth.
So whenever you are tempted to think that your fellow mothers have it all figured out just remember the mum who wasn’t afraid to admit her epic fails and cut yourself some slack.
