Aren’t humble brags the best?! #blessed

Seriously though, don’t you just love your friends on social media who have a better life than you and can’t wait to post about it?

I shared an article earlier today on Facebook, and suddenly realized people might actually think I am serious about my humble brag. Or worse, the people who are guilty of humble brags and can’t find the humor in it. So I decided to write some of my own. These are 10 personal experiences that made me literally step back and go, Man! I am awesome, and so is my life!

I’ve included EDITOR’S NOTES. That’s the part your awesome friends are too awesome to share. Here goes:

1. Last night I made my kids “ice cream”. It was a yummy concoction of strawberries, banana, nonfat Greek yogurt, spinach, peanut butter and a little honey. They ate it like champs! ‪#‎HealthyKids #‎OopsIForgotTheKale‬ ‪#‎SillyMommy‬

EDITOR’S NOTE: I then spent an hour cleaning up vomit from the bed, floorboard, carpet, woodwork, toilet, bathtub, cabinets, my son’s belly button and my daughter’s feet. ‪#UpstairsStillSmellsLikeStrawberries #Blessed

2. My daughter is ready to potty train! Can you believe at 1 she tells me “pee” and “poop” she even points to the potty and says “potty”! #ShesOnly1 #SmartyPants #Blessed

EDITOR’S NOTE: She also can reach her hand in her diaper and show me the proof. It makes me gag and her scream bloody murder. #PoopyPants #StickingToDiapers

3. For Lent this year I am giving up Facebook. So long, friends! #40days #Catholic #Lent #MissMe

EDITOR’S NOTE: I will still be stalking you all in secrecy and texting people about what I saw. #40days #Catholic #Lent #Sneaky

4. OMG! My husband is the very BEST husband in the entire world!!!! #SorryNotSorry #SoLucky #SoBlessed

EDITOR’S NOTE: I’m suddenly drawing a blank as to why my husband is better than yours. But I know he is! #HesTheBEST

5. My son can sing all the words to Mickey Mouse Clubhouse, Miles from Tomorrowland, Paw Patrol and Little Einsteins. #Talent #SingsLikeABird #LittleEinstein

EDITOR’S NOTE: He’s a junky. He watches hours of all of these shows so I can get some work done. #SingsLikeADyingCat #StillBlessed

6. My kids can dress themselves! I know, it’s so weird. I can’t believe how independent they are. I guess I’m doing something right. LOL. #Independent #ProudMommy #Blessed

EDITOR’S NOTE: They can also undress themselves. And they do it on the reg. I can’t tell you how many times I have opened the front door yelling at the top of my lungs, “SON, PUT YOUR PANTS ON! DAUGHTER, LADIES WEAR SHIRTS!” #Independent #IScareTheNeighbors #TheyScareTheNeighbors

7. Happy Valentine’s Day! OMG! These roses smell incredible! Why doesn’t Facebook have a smell feature? LOL. #LuckyLady #SoInLove #MyBetterHalf #Bae

EDITOR’S NOTE: My dad bought me the roses. #truth

8. Summer is right around the corner! Time to grab that Kale Salad and do some extra cardio! #Determined #BeachBod #HotMama

EDITOR’S NOTE: Sure, I’ll take some Kale but give me an extra topping of cheese. Does chasing after my half naked kids count as cardio? #Duh #BeachBodsCanSuckIt #CheeseIsBetterThanKale #MomButt

9. Wow! I got so much accomplished today. I can’t believe it’s only noon. Now it’s time to put the kids to bed for their 3 hour nap and enjoy some “Me” time. #RoutinesMatter #WhoSaysParentingIsHardWork

EDITOR’S NOTE: Today I changed diapers, fed the kids some cereal, cleaned up the kitchen, fixed a semi truck, played referee, hid out in my bathroom while my kids fought over a toy, washed the same load of laundry 3 times because I kept forgetting to dry it, reheated my coffee 5 times, drove around BEGGING my kids to nap, bribed them to nap with candy, decided candy wasn’t a good way to bribe them, took a walk instead, turned on the TV, and brushed my teeth at 2 pm. #SuperWoman #Accomplished #NoNaps

10. Daddy came home from work early to surprise us and snapped this fun picture of us when he walked in the door! #GoodThingDinnerIsReady #DressedToImpress #WeLoveSurprises #BestDaddy #EvenBetterHubby (see below. LOL!)

EDITOR’S NOTE: My husband did come home early to surprise us and found us in our natural habitat. #Isurrender (See Below.)
