Mom life is not always cupcakes and rainbows.

I’m sure you can tell by my lingo that we watch the Trolls movie on repeat haha.

lets be real: mom life with confetti background

I mean don’t get me wrong I love love love my family and wouldn’t trade them for the world but at my house, it is just chaos!

I’m gonna be real with you and tell you how it is.

There is a lot of yelling, crying, and whining at our house. I know what you might be thinking, “Learn to control your kids!”. You see, my kids are not really crazy. They are overall really good. I am super thankful for how good my kids are, at least, at this age lol. It is just that sometimes they get in their little moods, who doesn’t?

Okay, okay I don’t want you guys to think that I am pulling at my hairs every day. We have really good days when they are not needy and whiny. Those days are the awesome days that we all love! When the kids are playing by themselves, in good moods and are actually listening.

Becoming a mom has shown me a lot.

As parents, we have to teach our kids everything. I am always evaluating how I teach my kids stuff and what I want them to remember as they grow up. The fact that I am always teaching them things I learn from it all too. I learn to not have a sailor’s mouth and cuss up a storm all the time lol and I learn to not yell at them so much and they will probably listen to me better. We learn so much from our kids about ourselves.

Being a parent, we are going to have minor slip ups but its okay. You just have to realize what you are doing and learn from it. Go away from the kids and take deep breathes. It really helps, especially if you have a lot on your plate. Go back to the kids and just show them love, attention and have patience. All they want from you is love and attention.

I know it can get frustrating always hearing, ” Mom” and “Mommy”. Some of us even have a third “child” and hear, “Babe!” or “Hun!” all the time haha. We are always needed in the household and it can definitely get overwhelming. Just remember to take a step back for a while and take a breather.



Nowadays we see so many picture-perfect families.

You can’t judge a book by its cover. You don’t know how it is in their household. Don’t strive for the “perfect” family. Strive to have a loving, respectful and happy family. We need more positivity in the world! Let’s all help each other grow and be kind.
Much love, Taylor Grey with a pink heart
