Blowing The Lid Off Motherhood: Popular Instagram Blogger Mom Shares The Realities Of Her Everyday Life
April 10, 2019 12:41 By Fabiosa
The joy of motherhood can’t be compared with any other feeling, although it changes a woman’s life much more drastically than anyone can imagine. It's not just about a change in the usual routine, lack of sleep, and constant anxiety. Most mothers used to hide stretch marks and extra pounds that were gained during pregnancy. Today, many people are spilling the beans about what their bodies have undergone after labor in their blogs. Sarah Landry is one of them. Together with another famous blogger Kristyn Dingman, they prove there is no need to feel ashamed of your changed body.
In February 2019, 31-year-old Jazmyne Denise became another heroine of social networks. She is a mother of 4 beautiful children, and there is no doubt she loves her family just the way it is.
She shares a lot of “perfect” photos in which everyone looks happy and cheerful. We are sure that in those moments they felt exactly like that. But, Jazmyne, like many other moms, sometimes encountered misunderstanding from other people. This must have become the reason for sharing some other, candid photos that illustrated her life from an honest perspective.
For example, the woman depicted a typical situation: while cooking dinner, she helps the eldest child with homework, feeds the younger one, and watches the two middle kids playing nearby. Such a mini-kindergarten together with numerous household chores is her daily reality indeed.
With four kids I’m way too exhausted to even think about having a life after dark and way to busy to go to bed at a decent hour.
Jazmin decided to start a blog after the fourth baby. In this way, she could answer many questions that interested her, as well as show other mothers that there is no such thing as perfect motherhood.
This ordinary morning turned out to be one of those when the woman dreamed of the end of the holidays.
I’m just trying to brush my teeth and feed Koehn. And it’s turned into another bathroom party.
Probably, many women will agree that even in the progressive 21st century, it is challenging to be a mother.
Today while waiting on my plane at @indairport I had the choice of pumping on the floor in the dirty airport bathroom or pumping out in the open for everyone to see. As you can see I chose the later. I know some of you would say I should have just gone in the bathroom. You go eat your food in there and let me know how it goes. Make sure you sit on the ground right next to the toilet too. Because that’s where the plug was located.
Judging by the photos that Jazmin shared on her Instagram, she doesn’t mind having an unideal house.
Sometimes her husband has to do the “mother's work" and feed the baby. Moreover, time for the parents to be just alone is almost worth its weight in gold.
Caring for a single child already takes a lot of time and effort. What can you say about four kids? Maternity is daily, hard, multitasking work without holidays and weekends, and it cannot be perfect, can it?
