Tales of a Perfectly Imperfect Momma

Meet Jessica, the Perfectly Imperfect Momma.   She says, “I am the funniest SAHM in MD. Shh….its not polite to disagree with me.”  Let’s all go tell her that she’s funny, and while we are there, congratulate her on the recent birth of her daughter!

Tell us about your blog. What can we expect when visiting?
Well, what can you expect? Uhh….good question. You can answer this two ways. And if you know me, you know – I will answer both ways. If you dont know me…well derf…thats why you gotta visit. Well, the first way to answer I would like to say is: expect to laugh. Expect to be floored at how stinking awesome I am. Expect major wow factorness here. Expect a woman who makes up her own language. Expect a woman who loves herself, just a little too much.

My other answer would be: expect a hot mess. My blog is just like me…a mish mosh of everything – with a twist. Not that I am twisty…I am just…well, as my mom put it: weird. And extremely funny. No seriously. I am really funny. Ask my mom..ahem…kids…ahem…anyone I know in real life. And if they disagree with me; then know, they lied to you and dont really know me.

Tell us about you….the “imperfect mama”.
Here’s what part of my about me page says:  I am a sexy, sexy lady who you must fear. I know….you wanna be me. But you can’t. Cause I already inhabit this cool spot. Not enough? Well, if you must know more than that(and I’m not sure why you would need to)…….I am the funniest SAHM in MD. Shh….its not polite to disagree with me.

But if you’re looking at my name you’re probably wondering: how could she call herself imperfect? Especially with that answer to the last question. Its easy. Back in the day I used to try and be like everyone. Tried hard to be what everyone else wanted me to be. I stopped living that life when I grew up – but started reverting back to that when I gave birth to my son.

I started feeling like I needed to be this picture perfect momma with the picture perfect kid and marriage. Quickly I realized that aint gonna happen so now I embrace my imperfectness. For example…the word is imperfections and I said imperfectness.

See how awesome I am? I know I am a dork and walk around like a mountain woman sometimes but I still love myself.

Do your friends and family all know about your blog?  Are they supportive of it?
Ha. Friends? That would require me stepping away from my desk…which is something I never do!! Um, well…thats what my family thinks at least. well…I think they do. Know about my blog that is. I do know I have some family that knows about my blog (like 2 people). And they are all fine with it. Supportive? I wouldn’t say so.

These people still look at blogging as a waste of time. Apparently, blogging regularly turns you into some sorta troll woman (ahem…politically correctness is not my forte). No one can seem to grasp that I am a writer and I need to write. Well, no one but my husband. He doesnt mind my blogging but he does mind when I write about him (http://reallyimamom.blogspot.com/2010/07/dont-want-them-to-know.html). Oops…sorry baby!

Have you ever “met” anyone in real life from blogging?
Ugh…this is such a huge pet peeve of mine. No. I have not. And I am very bitter about it. Every time a conference has come up; something has happened here that I couldn’t. Like BlogHer 11? Yeah…this chick had to up and give birth to a little Diva.

I do live nearby some bloggers and tried once to meet up with one – but again…something happened (huge car accident had shut down the area I needed to get to). But I am trying!! I am tired of all youse peoples having fun without me!!

  4. I totally relate to the concept of never stepping away from your desk! Well, that’s not true actually. I step away plenty; my laptop is just my siamese twin :)
