Do you have the same feeling that all this pictures on Instagram are not real? After few days of exploring pictures I asked myself one question “What the f*ck is going on?” I don’t know, maybe is only me but this pictures are too perfect. Or maybe people who doing such a brilliant pics are millionaires and have dozens of nannies.
Perfect make-up, perfect (clean) clothes, nice hair, beautiful nails, as I know, are not the new Mummies (in fact every Mummies:P) attributes. To be honest with you I even forgot how to do make up:D I just don’t bother and I don’t care if someone will see my face without mascara on my lashes or lipstick on my lips. You know natural beauty is very stylish nowadays:D (I will be not lying simple I don’t have time:D). Do you use polish nail? (You should see my face right now). My nails are very short (probably not in nice shape) because I don’t want to accidentally scratch my baby’s delicate skin. Perfect hair? I just only wash them every two days and that’s it. Anyway how they have time for that perfect look? And photoshoots? Probably is taking a lot of time as well.
Of course I’m not dirty, messy or so on. But I’m not the Miss of All Mums. I think that most of us are quiet tidy but we don’t spend whole bunch of times on making our amazing look. I want to look pretty for my husband and that one thing I can do. Obviously in our bedroom when our little one is already in beautiful Dreamland. No I don’t always look sexy at night sometimes I look like zombie and I just want to sleep till next morning. OK not sometimes- most of the time. But I’m a MOTHER and that should explain everything.
I didn’t want to put on weight too much so I was trying to eat healthy food and walk a lot. Obviously I didn’t do many exercises because I didn’t feel well and I had anemia so I was feeling dizzy very often. Also I was tired as hell. I know that ages ago women was working in a field during pregnancy but I’ve always thought that lifting heavy things is not safe. So how the f*ck they showing me a FitMumma which lifting a barbells? Yes pregnancy is not an illness but doing everything to not loose your nice body shape? Not for me I preferred to take care of myself and especially that treasure inside me.
But nothing more pissing me off then all FitMummas who after two weeks look like Victoria’s Secret Models. What the heck! I’m struggle with my 5 kg and my boy is 5 month now. I don’t want to offend anyone but did they eat during pregnancy? Or maybe they did exercises every day? For me lifting my hand was quite big achievement.
After being on Instagram for 3 or 4 weeks now I realized that I will never have a thousand followers. I don’t have pretty pictures. I don’t show the perfect life. I don’t have such a pretty clothes, hair, nails, lips, bed sheets (?!). Yes bed sheets are very nice picture’s background as I noticed:P But I have my lovely family which is perfect for me and not always in beautiful scenery.
How is with you my lovely Mummies? Are you spending whole time to take thousand of shots and pick the best one? What do you think about all this perfect Mum’s accounts? They have thousands of followers but is it really so important?
