The Rules are Simple!
- We will announce the theme
- 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!
- Then in two weeks, we will announce our favorites and award a meme to the winner!
Celeste had us share what we Moms really eat for breakfast. Since this challenge started on Halloween there seemed to be a unifying theme to our breakfasts. I think it is safe to say that as Moms we did a pretty thorough job this year of inspecting and checking our children's candy stashes.
AND NOW... DRUM ROLL!
The winner of Mommy Reality Challenge #23: What Mom Eats For Breakfast:Lauren of Motherhood and Beyond for her submission via Instagram of the crumbled remains from her son's lunch she made that morning which then served as her breakfast. It is important to note that the Mommy Reality team has now met an all new high of efficiency when our participants start making their own memes! Winning!
Thanks Lauren and we hope you will join us in two weeks for our next Mommy Reality Challenge!Now, since all of the hard work for this last meme was done by Lauren I don't want you all thinking we are becoming slackers here, so we have invented a completely NEW holiday meal. Check it out and tell us you aren't on board!
Thank you Echo of Domain of The Mad Mommy for submitting this picture that so moved and inspired us to create this holiday that will now be celebrated the world over.
Don't forget to take a walk down memory lane to see all of the other #mommyreality memes on our tumblr page.Before we move onto our new Mommy Reality Challenge we want to give special thanks to Marie of Normal Everyday Life for co-hosting this last challenge with us!
It's time for the next Mommy Reality Challenge!

Our NEW Mommy Reality Challenge Theme:
Mom's Pet Peeve!
Does this quote describe you, well we want to know YOUR pet peeves? You know it will feel good to share them.
This week as Jen was preparing breakfast for her children she encountered one of her personal pet peeves.
The official handbook says that you need a set of needle nose pliers and a blowtorch to bypass this "safety device" because Heaven forbid that the children and their parents should be able to bust through the seal of doom to access a glass of healthy, nutritious milk. However, to be fair, we all remember that rash of milk poisonings that terrified the dairy drinking nation! Actually, no, I don't recall anything like that EVER happening. So, FAIL!
Now it's your turn to share your pet peeve! Is it that empty roll of toilet paper that always greets you or is it trails of dirty clothes strewn throughout the house or even your children constantly forgetting that their big school project is due until the evening before......
You have 2 weeks to complete this challenge!
