Last year, after realizing I had been spending way too many hours looking at celebrity gossip websites I decided to detox off celeb gossip all together. For me that meant no more magazine buying, no more celebrity blog reading and no more “E!” watching.
In our ongoing quest to stop comparing ourselves to others and be happy with who we are we have made a decision, another detox is in order!
Dear ‘Perfect Mommy Bloggers,’
The ones out there with a shitload of kids that only blog about the “grateful, happy, wonderful, amazing, touching, blessed,” moments in your life.
The baby food you handmade in your $300.00 “Kitchen aid,” the dinners you made from scratch with the wheat you grew outside and ground yourself, along with all of the vegetables you grew in your garden that your children are excited to eat five servings a day of, the “all organic” diets you and your children are on, the organic toothpaste you can’t wait to tell us all about, and the ‘kitschy,’ ‘thrifted’ look you’ve got going on in your houses to match your newly purchased etsy items.
Your perfect scrapbook pages that you are all ‘caught up on,’ and the amazing adventures you take your children on outdoors to discover a twig and yarn as the perfect toy. Your perfect wardrobes (complete with adorable aprons for all that cooking you do!)
Your flawlessly curled long hair, with your faces made up everyday, all day. Your handsome husbands who tell you over and over how amazing you are, three homemade meals daily, your organized cabinets you blog about and finally, – your skinny asses- and how you seem to make it to the gym for a minimum of 2 hours a day, consider yourself off my blog reading list, and you might want to consider a dose of reality (and maybe lay off the speed,) because no one is buying the bullshit you are selling, especially me.
Hugs and kisses,
Thirty Spot Girls
