Mommy Moment: I’m Cleaning Up So I Can Cook

Let’s throw perfection to the wayside and talk about this mom struggle.

When you need to cook but you gotta clean the kitchen first then you ask the kids to clean and they do it halfway so you end up doing it anyway. By then you’ve loaded the dishwasher, cleaned out the refrigerator, wiped everything down, swept and mopped the floor and you’re exhausted - and not 1 pot is on the stove. This is just 1 of the many WTF moments we deal with as moms.

I’m making dishwater and wiping the counters down but had to stop and have a living room conversation with my fellow moms.

There’s so much to do. Even figuring out what to do before you make ONE move is exhausting. It doesn’t have to be. For all the craziness of our daily lives, pencil in things on your calendar that you love - mine is cleaning. That is not a typo - 1 of my favorite things to do is clean. Turning on music, putting in my rubber gloves, and setting my Apple Watch to Mixed Cardio is a great time in my book. I know I won’t be interrupted because nobody in my house is volunteering to help me clean the kitchen (or any other room 🤦🏽‍♀️) so I also consider it “me time.” It takes A LOT to be a responsible for other little humans and as much as I love being a mom, we need to have more cathartic conversations like this and share experiences and learnings that can help other moms.

We may not know each other but Moms all have a common understanding and empathy for each other that we can laugh and cry about. What’s your #momlife like?
