I love group texts.
I, meaning seven of us, have had an amazing group text chain going for almost two years. They are a great one-stop shop for so many things. “What time is field day?” “Huge sale at Nords!” “My kids are driving me crazy, is it 5 o’clock yet??” “What should I make for dinner?” Any one of those are followed by a flood of informative, supportive and creative replies. It’s my go-to when I’m bored or discouraged, when I have great news or I when I want to share the latest celebrity scoop.
A few months ago, my texting cohorts and I threw around the idea of starting a blog. We thought we potentially have a lot of helpful tidbits and could portray motherhood in a realistic light. Because, the truth is that life isn’t easy and it’s not clean. Money gets tight & kids get sick. Our house might be condemnable, the package store owner knows us by name and our skin has seen better days. Life is actually pretty fu%*in gritty, but at the end of the day, you have to focus on the pretty. We are all trying to make life less messy, funnier, easier and better.
So, after many conversations and countless bottles of Whispering Angel, we are ready to roll. We all bring different personalities, content, and perspective to the table. We work and we stay at home. We can be serious, passionate, informative and wildly inappropriate. More than anything, we will be real.
Our goal is to bring some of our daily tips, tricks and realizations to you and hope that our readers will share their knowledge with us as well. We promise to deliver the pretty but will never hold off on the gritty; we’re all in this together.
