There isn’t much more I love in the world than moms keeping it real. Not just showing those beautiful loving moments but the real stuff.
A great place to find those little nuggets of realness is Twitter.
Like how terrible making slime really is.
Today, we made slime for the first time.
Also, today we made slime for the last time.

Kids in the middle of the night are flat out scary.
I don’t care how cute your kid is. When you wake up in the middle of the night and see them standing next to your bed, they are terrifying.

Mom life is glamorous.
You’re going to miss this, I whisper to myself as I’m shot in the butt with a nerf gun while unclogging the toilet.

We rarely eat a meal while it’s still hot.
Ever notice in the story of the 3 bears, Papa Bear’s porridge is piping hot, baby’s is perfect, & poor Mama Bear’s is cold?
I get it now.

We love iPads.
Me, to all my kids before the age of 2.
“No screens allowed.”
On their 2nd birthday, handing over iPad.
“This is your mother now.”

Your house is full of crafts.
Mom: *tastefully decorates house*
Kid: HERE ARE 20 MILK CARTONS I TAPED TOGETHER TO MAKE A SNOWMAN I EXPECT THIS TO BE PROMINENTLY DISPLAYED

Seriously, where are the spoons?
If you’ve never yelled, “WHERE ARE ALL THE DAMN SPOONS?!” are you even a mom?

They say freaky things.
Instead of saying, “Good night, mommy,” my kid said, “Rest in peace, mommy,” and now I’m a little afraid to go to sleep.

Look, not all babies are good babies and that’s OK.
I’m tired of hearing new moms always say their baby is “such a good baby.” Just once, I wanna hear a mom be like, “Yeah, no, my baby’s a real dick.”

You get to make up your own rules.
My greatest accomplishment as a parent has been convincing my kids that Chuck E. Cheese is only open once a year.

It’s like they don’t drink at all during the day.
Bedtime is the leading cause of dehydration in children 3-7.

Don’t worry moms, we know how much you love being a parent. It’s OK to admit the times here and there that you don’t. ♥
Liz is a just a mom trying to keep it real about how little she sleeps, how often she gets puked on and how much she loves them. You can find her here every day writing about real-mom moments.
