Keeping it Real — Share YOUR Messy Moments!

I have loved seeing all of messy moments that have been linked up to the  Clorox Messy Moments Challenge.

Sometimes I wonder if I am doing this whole mom thing right when my kids make huge messes and it seemed like everyone elses homes and kids are always so perfect.

It felt so good to see that messy moments happen to everyone. And believe me, there were some messy moments shared that were WAY messier and funnier than mine ever were!  There are some great moments linked up at the Messy Moment Challenge — from broken pasta bottles, ketchup accidents, baby messes, pet disasters, even messy moments with ferrets!

Messy moments can be funny!!

We had a pretty messy moment happen over the holidays.

I have a turquoise slip-covered couch. We were all sitting together as a family watching a Christmas movie. Of course we were having snacks. Pieces of chocolate got spilled and then sat on throughout the movie — I won’t name the cuprits LOL. When we got up there was chocolate all over the cushions and pillows! I was so happy to have slipcovers. I popped them in the washer and they look good as new – whew!

  1. Can you please tell me where you got your turq slip cover. I have a sectional similar and didn’t think it was possible to slip cover. Yours looks great–can’t even tell it’s slip-covered. We luv it but we went safe with a brown and would luv to go lighter since we have stained concrete floors…

  2. I LOVE Clorox!Honestly! How can one live without it and I know what you mean about messy! It seems like as I am cleaning one mess the kids are already mastering another! I love a good clorox kitchen spray on my counters about three times a day!

  3. I had a MESSY moment the other day…I was getting stuff out of the fridge to throw together a quick dinner and, while moving too fast, fumbled a brand new bottle of red wine all over our tile floor (in our brand new house)! It was one of those moments where you knew you were going to drop it, and I tried several times to clumsily catch it while it was falling…but it was destined to crash, splattering red wine EVERYWHERE! It was quite a mess to clean up!

  4. You are fun mom for letting everyone eat chocolately snacks on the couch! Glad I’m not alone in my messy moments- it seems like every day I am cleaning up a spill, wiping off shoe prints or hand prints, etc. I’m sure some day I’ll miss it….. (maybe not). 😉

  5. Mine is so fresh because it happened this morning. I was at a moms group at my church and the ladies had decorated the tables really pretty. They had Valentine hearts and centerpieces and I spilled coffee all over the white tablecloth. Embarrassing.

  6. I WISH I had a slip covered couch Jen. One of my dog’s favorite things to do is go outside, get a little muddy and cold and then run in the back door directly for the couch to cuddle on a blanket and get warm. Cant’ tell you how many times I have had to scrub that thing…

  7. We had a new messy moment the other day when my husband dropped an unopened glass bottle of coke on our tile floor! Coke and glass when EVERYWHERE!!! do you know how hard it is to clean up tiny pieces of glass AND sticky soda? lol I think he almost cried! HAHA

  8. You know its never a good thing when your 3 year old is in the bathroom yelling, “Mom, I need some help in here!” That was my most recent bleachable moment for sure!

  9. I love your slip covers! I love that color! I have been looking for something like that! Where on earth did you find those? Did you make them?

  10. I wish I could say a pet or kid was responsible for this mess… I was the one who made the mess though! http://www.thecreativeimperative.blogspot.com/2012/01/calm-jar-fail.html
