I got into a minor debate last week with someone who said that blogs and Pinterest make parents feel “inadequate.” Seeing elaborate bento meals, she claimed, causes sadness for those who can’t afford that for their children. Purveyors of store-bought goods get gloomy over craft creations. Images of immaculate homes make less-domestically-inclined folks downright depressed.
News-flash! People of varying talents are awesome in their own individual ways. We try to be as real as possible here, but I’ll admit that sometimes we gloss over the everyday, ordinary, average-seeming stuff. Who doesn’t?
