Darcie is the thoughtful writer behind Grown Up For Real, a blog about balancing the craziness of motherhood, marriage, and the desire to keep “climbing the ladder”!
What inspired the title of your blog?
I had a blog before that wasn’t very successful. It was a business blog that nobody but my close friends read. My husband was tired of me moaning about how I could never get ahead of my work life and Mommy life and he suggested I start this blog. The title expresses the sentiment of a woman who’s overwhelmed…all the time, LOL.
What do you love most about blogging?
Blogging is cheap therapy. I get to connect to women who help me realize that my crazy is not so crazy.
You talk about coming to the realization that ladders need to be climbed, kids need to be raised, and relationships are hard work…how do you balance it all?
I balance by understanding that no matter how many times I don my red cape, I’m not Superwoman. I need help. Realizing that my husband could actually help took me a long time. Now, that doesn’t mean that he’ll approach things the same as I would – he won’t. Balance is knowing it will get done His way.
What is one piece of advice you can offer to other moms?
Stop trying to be perfect. Your kids, friends, family, husband – they all love you AND your imperfections!
If you had to eat one food everyday for the rest of your life, what would it be?
Pizza. It is a well balanced meal (in my opinion).
