It’s almost 9 p.m. on a Tuesday.
There is clean laundry piled up on my couch.
We each ate supper at different times.
The dishwasher is still full of yesterday’s clean dishes.
My hallway closet is so full of junk things are falling off the shelves.
I still have thank you cards to write for B’s birthday….in March.
And, now, the 3 of us are laying in bed, all doing something different.
Daryn is watching Chicago Med.
B is playing on her iPad.
Some nights are a little better than this. Some are just. like. this.
We pretty much play musical beds at night, and at least one of us can expect to be somewhere different in the morning than when we went to sleep.
No matter how early I get up in the mornings, I’m forever running late.
I buy the cupcakes.
I given in to B too often. (What?!? Don’t look at me like that. She’s relentless).
She rarely lets me touch her hair, and I let her dress herself, and she often looks like a ragamuffin…..
BUT, she’s my ragamuffin.
AND, I’m getting more and more comfortable being a #hotmessmom.
I was a hot mess when I was pregnant with her.
I was a hot mess when she was little.
And, I’m still a HOT MESS.
The thing about it is that as long as she’s
relatively clean, safe (ugh, tho, if you read my blog post this weekend it IS tempting to wrap her in bubble wrap for the next few years), happy and loved, that’s really all that matters.
And, so I embrace my #hotmessness and just try to get thru the day.
I decided it would be fun to connect with other #hotmessmoms out there and am kicking off the first #hotmessmoms Club in a private group on Facebook next Monday! It’s gonna be a “just for fun” group for moms with no requirements other than you have to promise that you are….in fact….a hot mess lol. It will be a safe place to share the mess and turn it into our message! And, it will be chalk full of videos like you see above, funny quotes, kids snack ideas, and more! If you want in, just reply to this post at the bottom of this page or if you’re seeing this post on FB, go ahead and drop the comment #hotmess in the comments! Let’s have some fun moms!
TODAY IS MY HOT MESS DAY. It is yours??
