1. Judgement Free Zone

In this world of MomLife, it is hard not to feel judged ALL the time! As moms we ask ourselves constantly…Am I doing this right? Am I a good mom? The list goes on.

Here’s the thing…a Hot Mess Mom has zero judgement!

You want to cosleep with your kiddo? Go for it! You tried breastfeeding, and it just didn’t work out! Totally okay! You fed your kids cereal for supper last night? Umm yeah…me too!

Hot Mess Moms know that they do not have it all figured out. We are go with the flow kind of moms, and fully support the fact that you know what is best for you and your family!

2. Keeping Up Appearances

Are you tired of having to constantly scrutinize your wardrobe choices, and making sure that you are always looking your best? Would you rather hang out in an oversized hoodie, and some leggings?

Yeah..us too!

How am I supposed to bust out my insane mommy ninja moves chasing after my toddler in chunky heeled sock boots? I mean let’s keep it real ladies!

As hot mess moms we have WAY too much going on to be concerned with the latest fashion trends, and comfort is key. So feel free to hang with us wearing whatever you want!

And, if you are one of those ladies that is always fashionable…we will hang with you too! ๐Ÿ˜‰

3. Fully Caffeinated

A hot mess mom ALWAYS has coffee on lockdown, and we LOVE to share!

And, we are always down for a great mommy conversation sesh!

4. What’s Competition?

Alright mamas…truth time! You know the mommy competition game out there is fierce! It is enough to make your head spin!

Your child could recite the alphabet in 5 languages by the time they were 2. Awesome! You had all 3 of your children potty trained by 18 months. That is amazing! You have an entire art wall that looks like a curated museum of all the crafts that your child have ever made. You go mama!

But, as a hot mess mom, I am not EVEN trying to compete with this. Frankly, because I can’t, and also because I don’t want to.

My children are deeply loved, well fed, and we didn’t burn down the house today…I call that a win! So, if you need a vote of encouragement on your mad mommy skills, get you a hot mess mama bestie! ๐Ÿ˜‰

5. Honestly Girl

Do you need a truly honest opinion? Then get you a hot mess mom on your side!

We will absolutely tell you if that hair color isn’t the best, and if in fact that ‘friend’ is talking about you behind your back.

I know, I know, life can be so much easier if everyone agrees with all of our choices! But, I assure you, having that hot mess mom who tells you like it is…in the nicest way possible of course…is a bestie for life!

Plus, you can keep it all the way honest with her too! And guess what? She will love you for it!

6. Express Yourself

Being a mom is the toughest, most fulfilling, and exhausting role ever! I mean we ADORE our babies, and would fight off a bear for them, but we all have ‘those’ days.

It can be tough, and sometimes we can feel like we need to just cry or scream, but who can we tell that to without being judged? A hot mess mom that’s who!

Girl, we SO got your back! We will scream with you, laugh at the craziness that is MomLife, and probably bring you ice cream too! Because life is just better with ice cream in it! ๐Ÿ˜‰

7. Keep it Real

I don’t really know how to put this politely, but DO NOT BS a hot mess mom! We can see you coming from a mile away!

And here’s the thing…it’s pretty awesome!

You don’t ever have to worry about putting on a show with us, or maintaining a spotless house, or pretend that your children and marriage are constantly perfect.

Hot mess moms want the real YOU! We will embrace you, and love you for all that you truly are! What you see as imperfect, a hot mess mom thinks is pretty amazing!
