Writer's Workshop: Messy Moments

Mama’s Losin’ It

Please click the button above to find some really fun prompts!

The prompt that I chose this week is:
The SITS Girls are giving away a Canon Rebel Camera and are asking people to enter by writing a post following these directions and answer this prompt: Spending time with friends and family can lead to fun and memorable moments, but also some very messy ones. Tell us about the messiest moments that you’ll always remember! Let’s hear yours!

Early one evening, way back in 1997, my husband and I were occupied in our room, either playing online or watching TV, while the little people were somewhere playing in the house. At this point in time, we had seven children between the ages of two and twelve years old.

All of a sudden, I heard wild laughter from the two youngest, my sweet little babies, ages two and three, and shrieks of "MOM! MOM! Come quick!" from the older children.

I ran into the dining room to find my babies dancing on the dining room table, wearing nothing but huge smiles and covered in peanut butter, from the tops of their fuzzy little heads to the bottom of their yummy little feet.

Have you ever tried to bathe a toddler that is covered in peanut butter, determined to stay that way? The closest comparison that I can think of is trying to bathe a cat.

The dining room was never the same after that!

I received information about Clorox’s Bleach It Away campaign and am sharing my messy moment for the chance to win prizes from The SITS Girls. To learn more about the messy moment program, check out www.BleachItAway.com. Sharing your story on the Clorox fan page gets you entered for the chance to win $25,000 and daily prizes, and you can grab a coupon for Clorox® Regular Bleach.
