Mommy Reality #14: The Junk Drawer

In Mommy Reality by Jen20 Comments


Well… it’s okay that nobody wanted to play with us last week! *sniff* *sniff*. The theme was “Grocery Store Treasures” and the Mommy Reality Team searched faithfully to bring you such treasures as this:

Female Urinal PicAnd this:

PoohdohBut we understand being busy moms (especially during back-to-school week) and, no worries, we are good sports (and we’ll take our play-things and not share, thankyouverymuch!)

Onward and upward!

Time for the next challenge!

A few weeks ago we announced a change to our format! The winner of our Mommy Reality Challenge would get to join the Mommy Reality Team for the following week as our co-host!

Tracy won the “When Photos Fail” challenge!

The UnCoordinated Mommy served Tracy well as a pregnancy diary twice, and she has extended its life to include baby info, potty-training (she literally sings about crap!), crafts, and more!

Our new mommy reality challenge theme: let’s see them junk drawers!

Our Mommy Reality #14 Challenge comes from a suggestion from Jennifer, The Deliberate Mom, when she posted a pic of her junk drawer on Instagram! Great idea, Jennifer! Thank you!

To kick things off, here’s a pic of Celeste’s junk drawer:

We are nosy, so now we want to see what you’ve squirreled away in YOUR junk drawer!

Don’t Forget! If you’re sharing your junk drawer photos via social media, make sure to include the #mommyreality hashtag so we can find you and come back and link your picture up here so everyone can share in the goodness!

Don’t forget to grab our super-nifty button!

✔ *By submitting your pic, you are giving the Mommy Reality Team permission to use your photo to create a special silly meme for you if you win! :). If you win, you also have the to opportunity to be our co-host!

  1. I am so sorry this week just got away from me and Kevin actually went to the grocery store as we had a jam packed weekend (I usually go myself). But I can totally find a drawer around here and will try to be back later today to take a pic and link up now :)

  2. Ha ha! This one is awesome! I will submit my photo which I shared on Instagram (I fortunately only have one junk drawer). Celeste’s junk drawer actually doesn’t look that bad – LOL – it’s a crafty junk drawer!

    Have a great weekend.

    1. It really wouldn’t be very fun to play with stinky poo dough, but if it smelt like berries or something, wow what a combo that would be!

      Someone suggested even using the urinal as a humidifier… That is definitely one use!

  3. Hi Jen, it looks as if this weeks going to be a better one. That threat of not sharing your toys seems to have done the trick. And as I don’t have to enter a supermarket or leave the house for this one, I’ll be linking up for sure later!
