My Kind Of Kid Rearing Is Not Fancy

Those crazy people at Graco want you to believe that if you use their products (which I used), your life and living room will be beige and pretty like this one:

Graco Beige Perfect Mom Baby

In reality, this is what raising babies looks like:

Claire 10 months old newspapers

Anna Claire highchair mess

Graco also wants you to think this is what your baby’s play dates will look like, complete with unstained couches and mugs of coffee without toddler fingers dipping in:

What’s better than a play date with your baby’s best buddy? A play date with your baby’s best buddy PLUS catch-up time for mommies over a great cup of coffee.
Now, it’s your turn to fill in the blank: “My favorite is a playdate with my baby’s best buddy PLUS ________________.”

This is what a REAL play date looks like. Notice there are no kids around.

Oh stars I am so jealous right now. Your house is so freaking clean. My 1.5 year old just took a 5 pound bag of chocolate chips from the freezer (My Potty break) and dumped them all over the kitchen floor. 7 year old couldn’t find her gym shorts so she emptied (Literally pulled out the drawer and dumped them into the floor) her drawers to find them…….only to discover them neatly folded on top of the dryer. My 9 year old couldn’t find his cleats for ballgame so he completely emptied the floor of his closet only to find them sitting by the damned door where he left them. There isn’t a dust free surface within a 100 yard radius of my home and the car still smells like someone left their lunch, dirty gym clothes and rancid milk somewhere in it and I can’t find. I’m so jealous………..where’s the Xanax and the Captain Morgan….I’m going in. If I don’t come back to you in a few days, call Search and Rescue teams.

Mind you, these photos were taken many years ago when I had the motivation to keep it safe for toddlers. Now, with 7- and 8-year olds, my house is embarrassingly messy.
