I am an insomniac. I stay up late almost every single night. As a writer, that is when my house is most peaceful. It is quiet, relaxing and I tend to get a lot...
His Entire Life is a Messiest Moment
So I have recently partnered with Clorox to share with you guys some of my life's messiest moments as part of their Bleach It Away campaign. I am also pretty sure it is because they have secretly followed me around during the past year and have truly seen (been in awe of) how many/how much of their products I
obsessively regularly buy.
I am one of those weird people who cannot stand to run out of things. I stock up. I buy multiples. I buy in bulk. I really never run out of things. I go to the store for toilet paper when I have two packages (6 rolls in each package) left. It's is sort of a sickness but in a good way. Right! Right?
Imagine my surprise and shock a few months ago to learn that we had run out of bleach. I mean how did this happen? I use a lot of it. To wash laundry. To clean. I went to the store that day to stock up and I might have purchased two or three bottles.
HIS LIFE IS A SERIES OF MESSY MOMENTS
The reason that I can NEVER be out of bleach is nine years old. He is the second love of my life. The person that made me a parent, changed who I am as a person and really has been the most amazing gift ever. He is also a walking mess.
The kid oozes mud from his pores. And maybe a little dust as well.
He has no idea napkins exist. He sometimes doesn't even lift the lid of the toilet seat because he thinks he has such great aim. He doesn't.
He crawls around on the ground on a daily basis whether that ground is wet or dry. He lifts the lid of the garbage can with his bare hands. He dries his wet hands on his pants. He sneezes without a tissue and carries on as normal right after.
He is all boy.
I wouldn't change a thing but that is only because of Clorox. Ok well maybe not only because of Clorox but Clorox definitely has something to do with it.
Just to show you a perfect example, I took my son's favorite white shirt. Check it out on laundry day:
Look at that shirt. How is all of that possible in about 7-9 hours? Besides being a nine year old boy, what else did he do in that shirt? I can never figure it out but I can clean it out and get rid of all of that dirt.
Now that picture above at the top of the article? That is the after picture. After laundry and Clorox. It is white again. For now.
I want to hear about your messiest moment.
