The Princess and The Prosthetic

The Whole Picture

January 10, 2020 in Motherhood, Sentiments - No Comments

Yes this is a pretty picture.
But what you don’t see behind the picture is…

The mama trying to hold it together.
The stack of laundry that’s roughly a week old on our dresser.
The mama that invariably will forget to add funds to the school lunch account. For the third time in a row.
The mama who’s car is a literal disaster area.
The mama who questions if she spends enough time with her daughter.
The mama who hoped for a big family but was only blessed with one angel.
The mama who cries during Disney movies. Or animal movies. Or movies with kids. Just movies period.

The mama that literally buys the gifts on the way to the birthday party because #workingmamalife
The mama who really wants a date night with her husband but her daughter is healing from surgery and they don’t want to leave her.
The mama that still has Christmas stuff up.
The mama that battles Type One Diabetes every day.
The mama who is anxious about her daughter becoming a “teenager.”
The mama who hopes her words are impactful but fears she’s lost in this big convoluted jumble of social media.

So today friends, please don’t compare yourself to strangers on the internet.

Because sometimes……you don’t see the whole picture.

Jaime

Hi Y'all! I’m Jaime, a proud working mama, author, girl boss and wifey to an ultra-adorable husband. I am a huge book nerd, I drink coffee like my life depends on it, and run on dry shampoo and Amazon Prime. Leopard print is my favorite color. I am a story teller at heart and this blog is a virtual scrapbook of our crazy beautiful life. I'm a Type One Diabetic and our little warrior princess Callie is a lower limb amputee. By sharing how we’ve chosen to flourish in the garden we’ve been planted in, we hope you can take some small nuggets of hope, inspiration, and laughter. We are so grateful that you’ve found us—welcome to the fam. We embrace our perfectly imperfect lives and don’t let the doctor’s appointments, spreadsheets, speaking engagements, 10th birthday parties to plan, housework or date nights overwhelm us. Those things are just the beautiful reminders of all the blessings in our lives. Read More
