In Mommy Reality by Jen8 Comments

Waa-ha-ha-haa! Welllcome, our pet, to a very SPOOKTACULAR edition of the Mummy Reeality Challenge!


If this is your first time hearing about the Mommy Reality Challenge we are so glad you are joining this great community of moms who participate in our weekly challenges that showcase all the fun, crazy, and sometimes overwhelming moments that are in every mom’s life!

Please don’t just read. This is an INTERACTIVE post! Come join in all the fun!

The Rules are Simple!

  1. We will announce the theme
  2. You will take a pic, post it to the social media account of your choice with the hashtag #mommyreality or write a post and then link it up to this blog post!
  3. Then in two weeks, we will announce our favorites and award a meme to the winner!

These past two weeks in the spirit of it being Halloween season, Jen from the Mommy Reality Team challenged us to show “Something Scary” around our homes.

The result was fab with a wide assortment…from the obviously scary such as a “Creepy Ghost in Photo” to the educational realism of how creepy and intimidating cosmetic aisles can be. A very special ‘thank you’ to Jennifer from The Deliberate Mom for co-hosting with us!

We are Talented Dancers!

Before we announce the challenge winner, Evil-Scientist Celeste and Frankenstein Jen have been rehearsing some wicked dance moves these past couple weeks along with this week’s new Special Co-Host Bride of Frankenstein Marie! We are SO excited to FINALLY debut this to you! In addition, we’ve brought back our past two co-hosts to join in the fun: Wolfman Jennifer and Dracula Joanna!

Our NEW Mommy Reality Challenge Theme:

“What Mom Eats For Breakfast”

They say breakfast is the most important meal of the day!


Jesse Pinkman Corn Pops

Okay, most of the time they say that.

Whomever “they” are.

(These darn “THEY’s” go back and forth on that issue and really need to make up their minds)


Before we dive in: Just a little background on how our challenges are selected- Jen and Celeste take turns writing the post and creating the winning meme from the last challenge. This week it’s Celeste’s turn.

Celeste actually doesn’t care much for traditional breakfast food, so while scrambling around getting everybody ready in the morning will usually opt for a mug of (cheap and instant) chicken noodle soup. After everybody’s at school, when she gets back, sometimes she’ll pour a bowl of cereal instead for a quick breakfast. Favorite cereals include: Cheerios with honey and frozen blueberries or Frosted Mini Wheats, Cookie Crisp or Golden Crisp. All healthy and adult choices.

Celeste Breakfast

So we want to know! Are you the type of momma who grabs something on-the-go like a granola bar? Or maybe you just do coffee? Or do you wait to drop your kids off at school and then fix yourself something delicious and elaborate? Or maybe you fetch something from Mickey D’s? Are you a pancakes or a waffles kind of gal? Do you have a favorite cereal? Or do you opt for a breakfast food that’s off the map?

We want to see! You have until 11/14/14 to Submit!

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

  1. I was so going to put up a Jib Jab video on my blog today, but haven’t used it in awhile. So, when I went yesterday to do it and it was going to charge me $18 for a year’s membership, was a bit taken back. I am not cheap, but still I don’t use it enough for a yearly membership. But still onto breakfast and I am really kind of boring on this one and usually have a bowl of raisin bran if I have time with a bottle of water. Not much a a breakfast person either, but I am realizing that I need at least something in my stomach to get me going for the day now and I try to be healthy at least for one meal lol! ;)

  2. Well today I had a cheese stick and slow cooked oatmeal. Is this a forum in which I can admit that I thought yesterday’s breakfast needed protein, so I hate shredded cheese right out of the bag?
    Classy, right?
    And I love that “Gotta have my pops” gif!

  3. I am a breakfast girl for sure and actually enjoy my rather boring Saturday to Thursday breakfast of Weetabix, muesli or porridge….But on a Friday anything goes, my favourite Friday breakfast is lemon cream filled doughnuts.
