I am Not a Pinterest Mom

Updated: Dec 17, 2021

The Christmas season is approaching fast. Everywhere I look, there is an advent calendar to do with your kids, or a post about DIY Christmas activities to do with a toddler. They look awesome and so incredibly fun! That is until you sit down and try to do them.


The truth is, I am not a Pinterest mom.




I wish that I was. I see the fun activities and I want to do them with my littles. But I’m also a working mom. I have a full time job, I run my own business, I’m in school, and my husband works third shift, so I am frequently handling the kids on my own at night and on the weekends.


In reality, I’m exhausted by the time I get home.


Now if that wasn’t enough, I also have a “perfectionist” personality. This has taken me four years to turn off when it comes to doing projects with my kids, and let’s be honest I am still very much working on it. If I hand them some paint and art supplies and let them just go to town, I am perfectly content and carefree to let them do their own thing. But the second it turns into a project that is supposed to turn out a certain way, my anxiety goes through the roof. I immediately want to take over the project while they “help” me.


So I am not a Pinterest mom, but that doesn’t stop me. Because if I can say one thing, it’s not that I don’t try, it’s that I’m plain old exhausted most days.

Hello! I'm so happy you stopped by

My name is Sebastiana, but most just call me SB, and I am an adventurer. I've had a wandering spirit ever since I was a little girl and now that I am a mother I get to share that spirit with my tiny humans.  ​
