I am a mom to a almost 2 year old little girl, a puppy, a cat, and a wife. I work part time for a church doing hospitality. I do almost all of the cooking, and the day to day cleaning. I take my daughter to a bunch of different classes, do arts and crafts with her, and go to the gym every day to stay in shape.
When I left my job to be a stay at home home, I knew it was going to be a lot of work…and it is. A stay at home mom has a lot expected of her, especially since we do not bringing home the bacon, unless its the kind you cook. Most of my days I don’t sit down until Sammy goes to sleep because of chasing her around, cleaning, cooking, running errands, but i love it.
I try to put my family first and be a good example however I have a horrible guilty pleasure… reality TV. I’m not talking anything as innocent as the bachelor or the voice, I’m talking about Real Housewives, Keeping up with the Kardashians Vanderpump Rules…anything on BRAVO or E! I love everything about it, the drama, the glamor, the ridiculousness.
I know its horrible for my brain, junk in junk out, but I cant help it. It relaxes me, Its almost like a escape from reality, there is no longer laundry that needs to be done, bills to be paid, dishes to wash and put away, I am fully engaged with which new house wife pissed the other off or which Kardashian is popping out a new kid.
After watching these shows I feel refreshed. That 20 minutes that I have the TV all to myself with no one around is a mind dump. I am not proud that I watch this stuff, I don’t look up to these people or want my daughter too (some of the ladies are pretty fabulous, Lisa Vanderpump was able to use your her fame as a platform to make her restaurant even more successful), its just so damn interesting. Anyway after watching these shows I feel good, refreshed. Sometimes if your a parent you need to give into your guilty pleasure (as long as its legal) to be the best you.
