My name is Jamie Johnson. I am 36 years old and live in Owensboro, KY. I have a husband, Logan, a six-year old little boy named Henry, and a three-year old named Simon. I also have a very large dog named Newman.

I am a full time working mom. My husband works full time and coaches a local high school baseball team. We stay extremely busy and work hard to provide for our family.

I noticed a couple of years ago that I was starting to compare my family to other families, mostly on Facebook. They made me feel like an inadequate mom that wasn’t doing enough for anyone – including myself. It was pretty ridiculous. Then I talked to other moms and they said the same things.

That is when I decided to start writing this blog. Everyone puts filters on their lives now. They only post their highlight reels on social media. So I write about real life. I write about the good and the bad. The things that make being a parent so hard. I write about real life, and real life gets messy.

I love writing this blog! You can also find some of my pieces on Good Morning America, Her View From Home, Scary Mommy, HuffPost Parents, Motherly, PopSugar Moms and Today Parents.
