I’m NOT feeling very Pinny lately!!

Standard

Don’t get me wrong I love Pinterest, I love the idea behind Pinterest, but at the same time, it seems like it’s just another way of reminding me what a failure I am or can be. I don’t need to be the last girl picked in dodge ball heck I don’t even need to play dodge ball. I pin all of these great ideas and have sworn that each week I will try to make/replicate one of the pins that I find and admittedly have found some great recipes and kids crafts. Yet sometimes I find myself staring at Pinterest and internally screaming GOD I UNDERSTAND I WILL NEVER BE F%CK*NG PERFECT so please stop pinning all these amazing crafts/ideas that only those annoyingly perfect mothers whose children don’t suck all of the energy and life out of their mothers on a daily basis can do. Assholes.

I get that I am the mother at play group whose hair looks like she doesn’t own a brush (stupid natural curls I curse you), who most often has spit up on her arm and nearly always finds some random stain caused by my toddler’s sticky fingers only after I have pulled out of the driveway. I notoriously fail to remember to bring a diaper bag and am as a whole generally the one unprepared for whatever the activity may be and often leave thinking how do the rest of them do it. I’ve come to accept that and know that I LOVE my children and they LOVE me and we have a LOT OF FUN together albeit messy, crazy and totally disorganized, but I just don’t need crap from Pinterest. So when all you perfect mothers pin your crazy ideas about how I should spend that rare free time I have to make DIY dolls that are ridiculously cute and I really want one, I also kind of want to be sick. Do you people really have time to do that, if so I think I might hate you a little. Needless to say, I might need a hiatus from Pinterest.

Sweet Sweet Breakfast Treat

Standard

I love Pinterest, I might be addicted to Pinterest. In fact I was wondering if they will start having support groups for people who spend too much time on Pinterest. P.A.A. Pinterest Addicts Anonymous perhaps? But as much as I love the hunting, finding, pinning and the nosing around what other people are pinning, I really like to actually try to recreate some of the things I’ve pinned. SO in full disclosure I thought I would share my successes and failures with you. This week we made Baked Oatmeal with Strawberries, Chocolate and Bananas from Pinterest and it was DELICIOUS! We used Steel Cut Oats because that was all we had on hand but it made it just a little chewier than I imagine rolled oats would and we were ok with that. It was pretty chocolatey which wasn’t a bad thing but I think next time I am going to experiment and try substituting raisins for the chocolate chips to make me feel like it’s a healthier option. But lemme tell you, there will DEFINITELY be a next time. Heres to hoping my 2 year old doesn’t think we’re going to eat something like this for breakfast everyday because lets be honest, most days breakfast comes from a box!

If anyone is somehow not on Pinterest that wants to be, leave a comment with your email and I will be sure to get you an invite.
