Welcome to the Tired Mom Supermom blog!
My name is Elizabeth..
I am a newly stay at home mom, trying to live a simple frugal life with my 2 boys under 5 years old. I run a pretty organized home, and I want to inspire other mommies to keep a clean and organized home while having time and energy to take good care of their children as well. It can be a tough balance.
Why Did I Choose the Title Tired Mom Supermom?
The reason I chose the blog name Tired Mom Supermom is that I was working 40+ (more like 50+) hours a week and trying to keep up with the demands of motherhood and housewifery (is that a word? Well it is now..). I was pretty much tired all the time (still am) and I was working really hard on finding systems and schedules that worked for our family.
What Do I Consider A “Supermom”
A Supermom to me is a Momma, trying her very best. Whether you are a mommy who allows a ton of screen time or a momma who bakes everyday with her kids, you are enough. The most important thing you can provide for your children is your love and attention. If you are there for your kids when they need you most, you are Supermom. Supermom doesn’t have to mean a sparkly house, dinner on the table just in time for hubby’s arrival from work and freshly bathed kids every night before bedtime. While that sounds like a 50’s housewife and their responsibilities, this isn’t the case anymore. Women should not have to be perfect, always smiling, baking pies and wearing clean uncomfortable outfits all day long to please our husbands.
You may dream that a Supermom is your “Betty Draper” from Mad Men (I would drop a GIF but I’m super confused on the copyright law for blogging, so here is a link–> Betty Draper). Just remember that she had kids who didn’t respect her and a housekeeper who kept the home perfect.
When you clicked on my blog, you may have thought that I was a stuck up superhuman mommy who has all her poop in a group with perfect routines and lovely children. That is simply not the case, because as much as I believe to be a Supermom, my definition of Supermom is most likely different than most.
Thank you so much for stopping by my little mommy blog. I hope you enjoy reading through my journey as a Tired Mom Supermom and share your stories with me, I’d love to hear them!
