Confessions From A Hot Mess

As I woke this morning in a puddle of pee (not mine, ha!), next to my three year old, in my bed, it hit me…I am One Hot Mess.

  • I can’t for the life of me keep up with my housework. I try…I really-really try. I recently told my sister that if ever I start contemplating another baby, I look at the mile-high pile of laundry I have and remind myself, “I can’t even keep up now”. The door to my bedroom should read, ‘Enter at your own risk.’ Just sayin’.
  • I haven’t had a hair cut, not even a trim, in…get this…11 months. Seriously!
  • And I haven’t had a pedicure in at least a year.
  • I am rocking some great fall colored nail polish… on some of my nails.
  • Last night, my baby slept in her clothes. Daddy put her to bed…but still
  • And I slept in my makeup. Eeeww! I know, I know.

I was at an event last night for Moms of Multiples.  NO, I am NOT pregnant. My family is NOT destined for an eternity of dirty laundry. I was there with March of Dimes. Our Community Director, who I absolutely adore, was speaking on the pressures of Mommahood, and she made this statement,  ‘Before I was a Momma, I planned to be a perfect one.’ I literally laughed out loud. I’m not sure if I’ve ever heard something so honest, so relatable in my life. Okay, I’m being a little dramatic, but that’s some good stuff, right?!

Today’s motto: Not perfect. But perfectly happy.

    Ha! Enjoy it! It doesn’t last forever. Before you know it, you will be empty nesters. Then you can clean, paint and redecorate to your hearts delight =^ )
