Yes, this post is about you.

Newsflash: Yeah… I’m really flaky. I own that.

However, I’d like to see the people who get snarky about that try to do what I do. Let’s see how well you keep your shit together when you are all by yourself with FIVE KIDS every damn day while juggling various projects to try to bring in money for your family and still homeschooling and keeping the frayed edges of your house as together as possible.

Let’s just face it…. I’m a goddamn badass mom. Those bitches are just jealous of my awesomeness.

  1. You juggle more than 3 women could together. Yes, you are a kickass mom who is raising 5 wonderful kids for all practical purposes by yourself. So if you forget something every now and again then so what. I really pray that your family can be all together some day soon. You are an awesome mom! Keep on rockin your awesomeness!

  2. You can bet your buns you are amazingly awesome!!
    I am always impressed, I have one 3 year old and I feel like i am constantly dropping all the balls!
    I aspire to be more consistent and awesome as you are 😀

  3. You are an amazing badass mom who handles more than 3 people normally can. You are doing a wonderful job raising 5 exceptional kids by yourself. Keep rockin and doing what you do best! Praying your family is all together in one place soon.

  4. I wonder why so many people judge other people’s life choices instead of offering support. My older sister (two kids of her own) to my younger sister (two foster kids from difficult social backgrounds), “Yeah, you took the easy way getting readymade children, I had to birth mine myself”… – like, WTF???

    And both sisters to me (not married, no kids, two careers), “You are just being selfish and immature, act like a grown-up and start growing a family!”

    I don’t get it. Really, I don’t.

  5. Screw them all! You are an awesome person and mother. I know stupidity is what causes these people to make comments judging others. You just keep your light my dear because you are AWESOME!!!!
    Love and Light

  6. Joni, I know exactly how you feel and I don’t even homeschool or pull off half the crafts you do! Having 5 kids myself, I can’t seem to find the time for my crafty stuff and I’m flaky too. I can’t help it, I just have so much to do often, especially since I have a child with multiple medical problems so we have frequent doctors appointments/testing, that I just forget about things.

    Don’t let those people get to you. Easier said than done, I know!

    You’re awesome and your kids are all so wise/brilliant so obviously you’re doing something right! <3
