Hot Mess Mom: When ones thoughts or appearance are in a state of disarray but they maintain an undeniable attractiveness or beauty. (urbandictionary.com)

But when I think of myself as a hot mess mom, this is what I see:

  1. Drinking wine before noon
  2. Wearing the same clothes from yesterday that I slept in and still wearing
  3. Instead of meal planning creative dinners, I wander down the frozen food section grabbing anything I can throw in the oven for 20 minutes or less
  4. Weekly meals include, chicken nuggets, taquitos, pizza, mac n’cheese, alfredo, sandwiches, left overs, left overs, left overs
  5. I no longer react to my kids screaming my name unless there is blood involved
  6. I get texts such as “where are you?” or “did you forget that you signed up for…” weekly
  7. Morning routine includes: “wake up! we’re late! hurry up! why are you still in bed? I woke you up three minutes ago!” —grabbing dirty jeans off the floor “put these on.” middle son: “but they’re dirty.” me: “they don’t smell, I checked.” youngest daughter: “momma, I don’t have any clean socks!” me: “wear what you wore yesterday!”
  8. It’s day three of no shower and I use face powder in my part to soak up the grease
  9. No time to look for clean underwear, so I turn it wrong side out
  10. I sign permission slips, planners, and homework in the car on the way to their school
