7 Gross Things I Do Now That I'm a Mom

Ewww! 128

gross things moms doI realize that even before I had kids, I had my own set of quirks. But now that I've got four children, I seem to have gotten a little weirder.

Or as I like to call it, "innovative."

Maybe it's the hormones or the lack of sleep or just that I need to do these things in order to make it through my day without losing my mind. Here, 7 weird things that I do now that I'm a mom.

  1. I carry my deodorant in my purse: Yes, I've found that if I put it anywhere else, even in the bathroom, I don't remember to put it on. And trust me, it's better this way.
  2. I save the sandwich crusts and eat them as my lunch: I'm not really a crust cutter, but when I do cut them off, I'll save them in a plastic bag and pack them for myself. Waste not, want not, right?
  3. I write emails on the toilet: Sometimes, when my kids are home and watching a television show, I'll lock myself in the bathroom and check my email. I'm not the only one, right?
  4. I wear the same clothes two days in a row: I figure that if I spent the time putting together an outfit and it looks good, why not get the most use out of it as I can?
  5. I share towels with my kids: If a towel is hanging in my bathroom, I use it. I mean, we're already sharing germs, so what's a shared towel?
  6. I chew gum instead of brush my teeth in the morning: This is probably one of the more embarrassing things I do now, but sometimes I just forget to brush my teeth, so I pop some gum in my mouth. I'm thinking it's better than nothing.
  7. I will drink old, cold coffee any time of day: It doesn't matter how long my coffee has been sitting out during the day, I will drink it. I realize it doesn't take that much to walk over to my microwave and heat it up, but I guess I'm just that lazy.

What weird things do you do now that you're a mom?

Haha! I love the honesty! I never thought I would get used to dealing with my kids bodily fluids, but now if there is no tissues around- its second nature to pinch the last of the snot out and wipe it on the calf of my pants! Gross, I know. Just keeping him presentable :)

I don't think any of these things are "gross" and I do most of them!

Carry an extra  toothbrush and toothpaste next to your deoderant.   That is really really bad oral hygiene.

I casually hold out my hand to accept the giant booger my 3 year old wants to hand me.

I wipe my kids noses with my hand if I don't have a tissue. If my kids don't finish their food I put it back in the pan.

I eat chewd up meat. If my son decides he doesnt want it I just throw it in my mouth and eat it.

I raised a child and never did any of those things. But I have to say I didn't work full time I worked part time

Amber Michelle Zapata

I didn't think most of them are gross, only because I was a mom with 6 kids and sometimes you didn't have time for yourself.....however the brushing of the teeth is crucial, gum just will not do the morning breathe! : )
