A “hot mess” is as a particularly disorganized person or chaotic situation. Did someone say disorganized? Chaotic?
Guilty as charged.
I can guarantee that whatever you envision a hot mess mom to be, I fit the bill. I am chronically late to everything, my house is a perpetual disaster zone, my family eats macaroni and cheese or pizza more than I would like to admit, and there is a distinct possibility that at any given time, at least part of my outfit came out of a pile of dirty laundry off the floor.
I certainly don’t have this whole parenting thing figured out, nor do I have the magic formula for making motherhood easy (it isn’t!!), but gosh darn it, I love my kids, I am constantly striving to do better, and I know there are a lot of other moms out there who feel like they are struggling to keep it together too.
My mission for Hot Mess Mom Society is to create a sisterhood with all my fellow hot mess moms, where we can join forces to combat the train wreck that is motherhood. (I say that in the most loving way possible). And can I tell you a secret? ALL moms are hot mess moms, some just hide it better than others. 😉
Here’s what you can expect from Hot Mess Mom Society:
- Laughter – Motherhood is hard. Really hard. Sometimes you just need a little laughter and fun to help get you through the difficult days. Through real life stories, funny memes, my own mom fail moments, and my sarcastic sense of humor, I hope to provide a daily dose of laughter to our community of hot mess moms.
- Practical Advice – The daily responsibilities of motherhood seem to be never ending. Dinner always needs to be cooked, lunches always need to be packed, laundry always needs to be washed, the house always need to be cleaned, butts always need to be wiped…it’s relentless! I have spent many an hour scouring the internet for ways to make my life easier. There is some good advice out there, and some not so good advice. I hope to help you weed out the crap, and give you practical tips to make those daily responsibilities a little bit easier.
- Mommy Maintenance Tips– What is this you ask? Well, oftentimes when a woman becomes a mom, she loses herself a little bit. She doesn’t have time to care for herself in the way that she deserves, and she’s probably dealing with changes in her body that alter her self-confidence. Every mom should feel good about themselves, so in an effort to help all you mommies maintain that self-confidence, I will share things like: affordable fashion finds that actually flatter our beautiful “mom bods,” and practical hair and makeup tips that even busy moms can achieve.
- Hot Deals – I am a self-professed cheapskate frugal living expert 😉. I absolutely love the thrill of a good deal, so whenever I come across an awesome deal online, I promise to tell you about it!
I think it’s about time that we embrace the fact that none of us are perfect, and life as a mom is basically a sh*t show! If we can all just roll with the punches, and support one another, we will survive (thrive even!?), even if we are a complete hot mess while doing it!
So if you value real, honest advice, could use a little fun in your life, and want to be part of a community of women who support one another and know that it’s ok not to be perfect, join me on Facebook and/or Instagram (you can also follow me on Pinterest and stay tuned for a YouTube channel coming soon!). Or stay in-the-know by subscribing to our “weekly roundup” newsletter. That way, you’ll never miss a thing!
