Okie dokie, I am going to try out this blogging thing while the kids are being entertained by Mickey Mouse. The first post should probably be to explain my title. I am probably not the SLOPPIEST mommy ever, but when you compare me to my sister (and my mom!) I would definitely take the title! We bathe and wear clean clothes, but if you ever just dropped by my house it would be a little embarrassing. Here are some of the things that make me a sloppy mommy:

The laundry is NEVER done...I know, I know, unless you do the washing completely naked, your laundry would never be done, but that is not what I mean. If it is not worn on the outside of the body, I am NOT gonna waste my time folding it. For some reason my husband still asks me where he can find some clean underwear. The answer is always, "in the laundry basket"! Our clean laundry basket is technically for dirty laundry, but the little ones cannot hold all the underwear, undershirts, socks and occasionally towels and wash cloths.

I don't iron. If it has to be ironed, I am not gonna wear it...unless my husband irons it for me (thank you Kenneth!!)

My car could be mistaken for a recycling center or landfill. On most days it is littered with papers, sippy cups, shoes, and socks. We never travel more than a couple of miles in my car, but evidently that is too long to keep our shoes and socks on.

My garage is filled with the crap I have most recently cleaned out of my car!

Toys. Really. I don't think I need to explain this!

My daughter likes to change her clothes (in the middle of the living room) or drag out all of her dress up clothes at least 10 times a day.

My son likes to collect shoes from all over the house and bring them to us. Usually in the living room.

My kitchen is usually destroyed, and I really don't cook all that much, so I am not even sure how that happens!!

When the kids go to bed I try to do something for myself like watch t.v. (something besides Mickey Mouse), read a book, go to the gym...

Most of these are things that you would typically find in a house with small children, I just think they are probably worse at my house than most!

Mickey Mouse ended so right now as I type, I have a little boy on my right leg and a little girl on my left. That makes for some very interesting typing, but it is a good reminder about priorities. The laundry can wait, the kitchen can wait, the car can continue to resemble a landfill...I have all I could ever ask for sitting with me right now!

I have all I could ever want in my whole life and I will proudly claim and keep my title!!

I am The Sloppy Mommy!!
