Mommy Reality: Jen NAILS ‘Dat Look?

In Uncategorized by Jen27 Comments

Last week my Mommy Reality BFF Celeste of Leapfrog and Lipgloss challenged all of us Moms to share ‘Dat look we give our children when we mean business.

When I first saw the challenge I was like “WHAT ?!”

And then I remembered all of the challenges I have made Celeste and others do. Like the time I made us all model our favorite Mom clothes.

Oh, here’s a picture of Celeste doing it…..

Or the time I did this to her.

Even months later I am impressed by my masterful photo editing abilities…..

Or the time I made her share this…..

Oh yeah this is supposed to be a post about MY look….

At this point I feel morally obliged to issue a warning to my readers before proceeding any further. Trying to capture a picture of  my own ‘Dat Look was a fairly terrifying experience and I am pretty used to looking at my face.

First off I began trying to take my very first set of selfies. I know this dates me.

After pretty much failing at the whole selfie experience, I Google searched “taking a good selfie”. Did you know that there are over 200,000 listings? With an additional thousand or so YouTube tutorials on this very important topic. Especially appreciated, but unnecessary were the listings for taking a good bikini selfie….


So because I have very little aptitude for taking selfies I enlisted my family members to help take a picture of Jen the “mad mommy”.

This proved to also be challenging. With more goofy than mad coming through to the camera.

So without further ado it is time to share my own version of ‘Dat Look!

Please remember before proceeding that you have you have been warned.

Just for fun I will include one more picture.

This is ‘Dat Look that I threaten my children I will show up and make at school or in public places in order to embarrass them. It evokes far more fear in their hearts and minds than the 4 pictures from above.

Check out some of the other epic “looks” that have already been submitted for this challenge.

Now it is your turn!

Fellow Mommies and Dads, we would love to see you recreate ‘DAT Look. OR, if you catch yourself in the heat of doing ‘DAT Look, grab your phone and take a selfie. We haven’t done quite a challenge such as this one and it’d be a blast to put together a collage of a bunch of Mommy Reality “looks”.

You have 1 more week to complete this challenge!

You can share what you love in a post or on your favorite social media outlet.

      The sunglasses on the face picture is a classic! I do that all of the time. Also with my glasses. Sometimes I will walk around and wonder where my glasses are only to find them on top of my head or on my face where they should be!

  3. haha! Seeing the other photos below really cracked me up. This is fantastic. I don’t think anything compares to the look I give the cats when they’re messing around the house at 5:00am. It could probably turn the buggers into stone.

      Oh you need to capture it and share sometime!

      I have to admit, I am getting some serious ‘Dat Look training from this challenge. My kids better be prepared, because now Mama might have a few new tricks!

      Time to Que the music “That’s what friends are for”.

      Thank you! Thank you! I think the world would never, ever recover from the pics I would have to unleash on it if we did a bikini challenge!

      Oh the look our kids can spot it from a mile away, can’t they? Mine helped me to “try” and capture mine last week and then this week have told me multiple times we should get the camera out because you are making the face!

      I am finishing the new MR post right now with a 100 degree temp my fevered brain is thinking up all kinds of crazy. Hopefully I can reign it in :)
