Mom gets honest on facebook
Facebook/Cierra Lyn Fortner
Cierra Lyn Fonter was doing her weekly shopping on Friday and the cashier stopped to tell her "I see you in here all the time, your kids are always dressed cute, behaving and you just seem to have it all together." As Cierra was on her way home, she realized there were a couple other things this cashier should know, that don't mirror her seemingly "put together" appearance. We admire Cierra's courage in sharing this with us, it's a reminder that everyone has a story and there is always more than what meets the eye.

In her post she said:

"I want her to know that I hadn't washed my hair in 3 days and my kids hadn't had a bath in 2.

I want her to know that I was trying to hurry out of there because I had forgot the diaper bag at home and Brenton was hungry.

I want her to know that once we got to the parking lot the "well behaved" child decided to stand up in the cart and I wasn't paying attention and barely caught him as he almost hit the concrete.

But most importantly I want her to know I don't have it together and may never have it all together. I don't know a mother out there that has it all together but everything we do is done with love for our children and that right there makes you the perfect mom and in our children's eyes we most definitely have it all together.

From one exhausted mom to another, you're doing great, have that melt down, let your kids eat the crap out of that cereal and take care of yourself always."
