#bestillmama rule No. 1 – no makeovers allowed on the first day of school

the daily Starr makeover monday blog

Today is normally #makeovermonday here on the blog – making it one of the highlights of my week!

But today – no. Just nope. Nada.

Today, I’m gonna be flat out honest. I’m pooped.

Today is a day where I need to preach to myself and #bestillmama.

It was one of those first-day-of-school, doctor-well-visit-with-shots-and-2-blood-draws, first-day-of-dance, grab-pizza-for-dinner-on-the-way-home-and-maybe-I-ate-an-entire-medium-myself-don’t-worry-it-was-cheese-and-meat-free-basically-a-salad kind of days.

Ever been there?

And this is how it ended.

I consider it a success that they all had baths, dinner and time to watch half an episode of I Love Lucy before bedtime. Mom of the year, right there (daddy worked at church tonight and boy did we miss him!!).

Nevermind that something got in my eye there giving me a red stink eye for that lovely selfie above. Nice. Goes well with this day!!

Tomorrow is a new day.

Sometimes we need to realize what matters most and let the other items sit on the back burner. That’s what I’m doing tonight. I’m here to admit I’m not super mom and I can’t do it all. Neither can you, my friend.

Oh, but I do get bonus points for taking this photo on the front porch at 6:50am, right???

I turned the camera sideways because there’s a ton of bird poop over there in the corner of the porch from their cute little nest. And I was standing in my pajamas, so good thing this wasn’t a selfie! Kylie starts school Wednesday, so she’ll have her own special photo, don’t worry.

Considering the fact that we have a safe home with a dry roof over our heads – well, we’re extremely blessed. I’m holding my kiddos a little tighter, counting my blessings tonight and praying for God to continue moving in the Texas region.

Come on, let’s agree to #bestillmama.
