Wife. Mom. Superwoman

10 Things I Suck At.

I feel the need to admit that I just don’t have it all together… at least not all the time. I’ve felt like a failure this past week and while I know I’m a “Superwoman”, even a superwoman has her flaws. Here are 10 of mine:

1. I don’t like cooking. I mean… AT ALL. Which I guess can roll into my next point…

2. I don’t cook. My poor husband ate a sandwich and bowl of soup last night. Yes, that’s the same day I even wrote him that sappy love letter. Poor guy.

3.  I get really tired of saying “no” all the time. In fact, sometimes it makes me want to jump off a cliff (don’t worry, I won’t). I have a 15-month-old boy. Need I say more?

4.  I don’t clean my shower nearly enough. Don’t worry I do it when company comes. Mom… you’re coming for Christmas, right?

5.  I wash our laundry every other week. We live in L.A. That means we don’t have a washer/dryer in our own apartment. Duh. (And yes, that means we own a LOT of underwear.)

6.  Sometimes, I curse at other drivers. (#!!@*# <– at least The Babe doesn’t understand it yet!?)

7.  I am terrible about returning phone calls. I hate this about myself. I promise, I don’t want y’all to stop calling!

8.  I don’t read my Bible enough. No jokes here… I seriously need to regroup! This is probably causing #6. Sad face.

9.  I skip the Mommy&Me group when they meet on the West Side of L.A. Once again (!!!) I’m trying to stop doing #6 and sitting in 1.5 hour traffic to get to a play date is majorly screwing with my attempts at not swearing. Trying to choose the lesser of two evils??

10.  I just made a list of 10 things that I suck at. I’m way too hard on myself. Can you relate?

Thanks for letting me vent about my imperfections for a moment. It’s good to take off the mask and remember that we’re all a little messy and in need of prayer, encouragement and the occasional chocolate bar. We do a million things wrong… but there’s a lot we do right. Let’s give ourselves a break today and thank God for our imperfections. Being perfect is boring (and impossible).

Now, to go grab that chocolate bar… :) Hey wait, what do you suck at?

    I am SO with you!!! I totally relate on several of yours – saying no, cleaning the shower, reading the bible. But the one I have the hardest time with is cleaning the floors!! We have 2 dogs and hardwood floors that seem to be dirty again immediately after being cleaned. It’s my constant battle!

    I don’t enjoy cooking. My husband does but doesn’t have time which adds to the pressure which adds to the dislike…. :) I also loathe doing the dishes! Fortunately, I am blessed with a patient and loving husband who helps me out even when he doesn’t have a ton of time!
    I don’t set the time aside that I should to read the Bible. I often lose sight of how refreshing it is to spend time in Scripture and it ends up on the back burner. Still learning!

    I’ve been following your FB since a friend liked your FB page. I always mistakenly thought you totally had it all together until I read your post about taking the mask off. Still thought you had it all together until I read this, to which I can relate on almost every single point and realized this is why I don’t necessarily think of myself as capable of being Supermom/wife/woman because I still deal with all these things. As others have mentioned, thanks for your honesty, vulnerability, and relatability. I love that you’re normal and are still doing all these amazing and inspiring things.

      Sweet Rose… If you only knew how on time your comment was. I sit here in tears reading your words as The Babe lies next to me taking his nap. I didn’t start this blog for recognition or popularity… But there are days (like today) that I battle my own insecurities, wondering if God is using this little dream to touch others. Thank you so so much for what you said. And thank you from the bottom of my heart for reading my heartfelt words and for accepting me :) You ARE worthy to be used by God… No matter how messy you think your life is. Thank God, we don’t have to be perfect! Bless you…

    I can so so relate! Most especially with cooking.

    I suck at serious deep conversations. I’ve never been good at communicating whats in my brain to my mouth. Listening I can do no problem but when it’s time for me to say something my mouth stumbles around, barely getting out the main idea.

    Merry Christmas from the South Pacific!

      Merry Christmas, Megan! Thank you so much for the thoughtful comment and for reading! I love your honesty :)

    I think I could have written this post, it is just like me. I am also terrible at going to bed at a decent time. It’s 12:40am and I have a 7am appointment that I need to get up for…

      Ha! Love it, Erika! Glad you can relate… Try drinking warm milk at night. Works for me! Thanks for reading and for the comment – xo!
