Do you get discouraged when you visit a blog where the photos are perfect, the house is tidy, the family is always doing wonderful, creative things, the mother is together, patient, and she sews all their clothes as well as bakes and cooks everything from scratch?? It seems too good to be true and you feel like a failure. Well, there has been a movement in the blogosphere towards "Keepin' It Real." Here, here and here are some examples.
I must admit, there are some blogs that I look at regularly because of their loveliness. I go to be inspired and I am not at all ruffled by their perfection. Let's be frank. If I want to see a sink full of dirty dishes, I don't have to go to the internet.
Surely, no one reading my blog would get the illusion that I have it all together. However, just in case, the previous post about being sick is my effort at "Keepin' It Real." Just so you know that even though my children are incredibly intelligent, good looking and talented, we are not perfect.
