    19 Struggles Only Hot Mess Moms Will Recognize

    That stain is probably not coffee and you don’t care at all.

    1. You open the microwave to warm up your coffee, and find yesterday's coffee still waiting in there.

    2. You've definitely forgotten it's picture day.

    3. You're pretty much always late, and it's definitely not because you stopped for Starbucks.

    4. You've probably sent your kid to school with an empty lunchbox.

    5. When you're running late, you're kind of fine just wiping yourself down with baby wipes.

    6. Ringing the buzzer for a good ten minutes on a day that there's no school? Been there.

    7. It's possible your child has started to tell you that things are due days before they actually are "because you'll forget."

    8. You've almost certainly given your kid two popsicles 10 minutes apart because you forgot you gave them the first one.

    9. "The school bake sale is TODAY? Oh, no totally...I just have to grab something out of my car."

    10. Yep. That was you walking around/going to work with baby barf on your shirt.

    11. Poop or chocolate? Toothpaste or spit up? Peanut butter or puke? You never can tell.

    12. Hell yeah you do drop-off in your pajamas.

    13. The school administrator who hands out tardy slips knows your child's name and room number by heart.

    14. Your kids are probably sleeping in their day clothes RIGHT NOW.

    15. You've gotten a speeding ticket trying not to be late for school pickup again, which inevitably leads to your kid waiting in an empty parking lot.

    16. Every time you post a picture of your kid you realize later they have schmutz on their face.

    17. You definitely sent your kid to school in *gasp* regular clothes on "spirit shirt" day.

    18. Your diet consists mostly of your kid's leftovers.

    19. But the biggest sign you're a hot mess mom?

    Nobody sees it but you.
