Why Can't I Be Like That?

I read a lot of blogs and know a lot of moms in real life that are oh so creative and crafty.

They do artwork, crafts and bake with their kids.

They see things on Pinterest for their house and actually make it rather than do what I do, which is to run to the nearest TJMaxx and find the closest thing.

They make their own Halloween costumes.

The list is endless of the amazing things that I see other moms doing.

I wish I was like them.

I wish I could be more crafty and creative.

I wish I could make things to hang on my walls, perhaps a nice wreath for my door.

But it just isn't me.

I don't like crafts.

I don't like art.

I just don't.

Does that make me a bad mom?

Sometimes I feel like a huge failure of a mom for never doing any of these things.

I see these blogs and think, shit, why can't I be more Pinteresting.

But in the end it doesn't really matter what other moms do.  All that matters is that I'm doing what I like, even if that means spending $24.99 on a wreath at a store that I could have easily made per Pinterest...

I'm a graphic designer by trade and the most I can handle are some lame art projects and coloring. Don't beat yourself up!
