Some mom’s make it look easy

Overflowing Yarn and Crafts


We’ve all been there. You go over to someone’s house and they say Pardon the messy house, only to look around and see one dish out. Or they will say their kids room is a disaster and you walk into a museum. Yep, we’ve all seen it. Those moms that make it look easy.

I hate those moms.

Here I am struggling to keep my house even decent looking. Both of my kids are in pj’s, and their hair is standing up all over because they want to brush mommy’s hair, not mommy brush theirs. Television? My best friend. Turn the tv on to PAW Patrol, and I can at least get a shower, even though that means I stick my pj’s back on because I haven’t had time to fold the mountain of laundry sitting in the playpen. Yes, the laundry is in the playpen. I really need to fix that situation so I can have that for my youngest, but that’s a problem for another day. I made sure both kids ate, and even managed to load the dishwasher, and then it happened.

The crying begins. It’s the mommy I want to be held, nothing’s wrong, but the I need to be held cry. My youngest is a mommy’s girl. Snow White wants to be held all the time. Blue Eyes was never like that. He would cry if you held him to long.

I try. I really do. But I don’t exactly have a great knowledge of house organization. That’s 90% of my problem. I clean, I clean all the time. But I’m extremely disorganized. And that means that I have stuff everywhere. I have piles in every corner and stacks of paperwork.
I eyeball pintrest enviously and pray that sometime I will have money and time to get organized. Some of the ideas are amazingly simple, but trying to accomplish them is another matter. We have been trying to become less dependent on credit cards, so charging the things I want to organize is no longer an option…. So I wait, and plot and scheme. Some day I will be organized! Some day…..

What is your best organizing advice for a complete novice? What is the one organization tip that you could not live without? This momma is begging for some advice and help.

About Military Bride

Military Bride is my view of the world from a veteran, spouse, and mommy perspective. I’m sure it’s going to be a bumpy ride, but I don’t mind sharing triumphs and tears with you. I joined the Military at the age of 21, and met my husband not to long after. We’ve been married a little over 3 years, and have a beautiful baby boy. My life has already gone through drastic changes, from getting out of the military, to becoming a mommy and going back to school. I look forward to sharing my experiences with you.

  1. 1) throw or give some things away – you probably only need about half of what you have.
    2) everything (EVERYTHING) needs to have it’s own, specific home.
    3) make yourself a chore schedule or calendar so you’re not repeating tasks unnecessarily and so nothing slips through the cracks.
    4) schedule yourself a day off from chores every week (other than dishes and other truly daily necessities)
    5) for goodness sake, cut yourself some slack! Just because someone’s house looks like Martha Stewart lives there doesn’t mean they’re a great mom.
