I was going crazy when I had my first. I felt like I was failing left and right while everyone else was mothering perfectly. After months of trying to FAKEbook (posting the perfect pictures, with the perfectly dressed baby in the perfectly clean room) I decided to start sharing my real life. I posted pictures of tantrums, selfies with no make up and spit up in my hair, you know- real life with a baby. In the process I created a hilarious web series called Real Mommy Confessions! It has not only become an outlet for me to share my craziest most hilarious confessions but also film and share confessions from other moms all over the world!
The trick to surviving and thriving as a mother has been to find the comedy in the chaos.
