me me me me me... and a little you too.

Green me.


I don't pretend to be perfect. 
Far from it really. 
I know I'm flawed and weak but still wonderful at the same time.
 I don't pretend to have all the answers. 
I can be both brilliant and idiotic and that's okay with me. 
I trust easily and forgive quickly as long as I know you love me. 
I'm not the world's greatest mother and I won't judge you for not being her either.
I get jealous and snarky and ask "Why her instead of me?"
And sometimes, "Why me instead of her?"


I lose my temper and find it again about a zillion times a day.
I want to feel close but at times I don't want anyone to touch me.
I really would "catch a grenade" for my husband.
And "step in front of a train" for my kids. (That songs in my head today.)
Sometimes it scares me how much I love my friends. 
I will cut you if you hurt someone I love. (Well, you'll at least make my list of people to cut someday.)
I don't like people that pretend to be perfect.
I've decided that's my biggest pet peeve. 
At least for now.
Because let's get real ladies.
I'm not perfect.
You are not perfect.
Let's just all be ourselves with reckless abandon.
That would be perfection if you ask me.

What about you?

very true and very well said. I noticed you didn't post yesterday and wondered if your little one had arrived! So excited for you and Drew. Your blog has actually become somewhat of a daily routine for me after work. Check my email and check your blog. Its uplifiting and real- which are both very much appreciated.

Hang in there- little one will be here before you know it and then all of a sudden your baby is turning 9 months and you think the 9 months you took to get here took waaaay longer then the first 9 months of their life. Ironic but true!

Wish you the best!

wow! someone really musta pressed your buttons! This reminds me of the Grass is Greener post I did a while back and you commented with a much appreciated quote from general conference: "the grass is never greener on the other side." And never believe otherwise, no matter how hard people may try to make you believe it.
And though we all do stumble a lot, I do believe that most people are just trying to be who they're meant to become. And if not, then they're probably super insecure (and, of course, we all are to some extent) and need other people to think they're someone they're not:( I think it comes down so much to being happy with what we have, and not focusing on what we don't or who we aren't. Then we won't need to pretend at all. We'll just be grateful.
