Real moms

Real moms have breast milk stains on the couch.

Real moms have family rooms that look like play rooms.

Real moms let real dads make the baby look silly for a photo opp.

Thanks, Kristen, for this great real-mom idea! It's so fun I might do it again sometime....

Okay, so apparently we're sharing a brain because I have breastmilk stains on my couch, my living room looks exactly like yours, and we continaully take shots of the babe with props on her head just because it's funny. I'm going to do the "real mom" challenge soon. Thanks for sharing it!

For a while I had breastmilk on my rear view mirror! We were driving down to Florida when my son was a baby, and my husband was driving while I was pumping - and I overshot! LOL

Real moms also call ketchup a vegetable serving and don't shave in the winter and are masters at reading in ten minute snippets!

Real moms always have some article of clothing that's soaking too.

Great Post! :-)

Real moms don't have a room in their house they can call their own. How did the toys take over? They're in the bathrooms, all bedrooms, even the kitchen. I swear I clean up everyday, and still the toys are everywhere.

I totally thought that was going to be breastmilk stains on your shirt.

Hilarious meme!

What an absolutely adorable picture... love those rubber duckies!!

And I also know all too well what it's like to have a stained couch and a family room covered in toys (and books... my son Alex loves to take ALL the books off the shelves for Mommy to put back).

Good thing us Mommies have each other to share these precious moments with! ;)

LOL! I remember back when there were breastmilk stains on my couch... And on my best shirts, and the chairs...

My living room still looks like a play room though....

I bet the breastmilk stains in my house are probably the "nicest" of the stains.

By your standards, I must definitely be a real mom! You should see our breast-milk stained mattress cover . . . well, not that you would really want to - LOL!
