Earth paused its rotation in sheer contemplation of the boldness of such an act.

God in His glory laughed at the story of me getting clean; it’s a fact. 

I took a shower. 

Two little boys with plenty of toys decided they needed the others’. 

Then shouting ensued along with some rude shoving and hitting of brothers.

I then heard a yell as my little girl fell from trying to fly like a fairy. 

She then ran in fear, yelling in tears, “without you, mom, everything’s scary!”

I took a shower. 

Little boy had to poo, then what did he do, but remove his diaper this minute. 

With poop smearing here, and all over there, what did he do but walk in it.

One found a cabinet with pots and pans in it, and arranged them all on the floor. 

The other found rice, and thought it was nice, to give it a little pour. 

I took a shower. 

I was desperate and dirty, not at all perty, so I did what any mom would. 

I took a gamble, left the house in shambles, but I cleaned myself real good.

  1. LMAO, I love it! Oh how true it ALL is! Yesterday I took the dog out to her business… I came back to half the bottle of fish pellets in the fish tank, oh my oh my that was a NIGHTMARE!

    1. Ooops forgot “to DO her business”

    2. Seriously my house implodes without me

  2. Oh my goodness! So hilariously true! Haha! Refreshing and funny!

    1. Thanks! We have to laugh at these hints – or we’ll cry

  3. This is FUNNY!! Everything can be as calm and cool as it’s ever been, but all hell breaks loose the second I step foot into the shower…and I’ve only got one kiddo!! Thanks so much for the laugh <3

    1. I know, right?! You’d think it’s Armageddon. Seriously even going pee is a challenge

  4. Hahah I loved it! Soo true!

  5. Hahah! This is great. My showers are either as quick as possible (then ultimately frantic), or right before bed when I’m half asleep and don’t even enjoy it!

    1. Yeah, because when you’re sleep-deprived as it is, who wants to wake up even earlier to take a shower?

  6. Oh my goodness, HILARIOUS!!! I cracked up reading this, and sooooooo true!

    1. Not exactly sure …. ?

  7. Haha!! This is so cute, I love it.

  8. Hahaha! Oh, so true. I dare to shower, and my house is a nuthouse as soon as I step in. LEAVE ME IN PEACE TO SHOWER!

    1. Yet my husband is always clean …

  9. HAHAHAH! Love it. Just keep telling it like it is. Speaking of which, I’m trying to remember when was my last shower????

    1. It got worse with my third kid. It used to be every day or almost, but now?! Cause if you have to choose between catching up on sleep and a shower what are you gonna choose?

  10. Lol this is so funny and SO true!

    1. Someday, someday … cleanliness won’t seem like such a privilege, lol

  11. Hilarious! So hard to find time for a shower with little ones!

  12. Lol!! Loved it. I think every mum can relate to this

  13. My reading this to my husband tonight to tell him watch the kids because I need to shower. Just hilarious.

    1. Seriously why do we need childcare to shower but they don’t? Lol

      1. It’s a really good question…

  14. Today I really had to think hard about when the last time I took a shower was. I think it was two days ago. (I’m all about being unabashedly honest today, aren’t I?)

    1. It’s not uncommon for me to skip two days also. Our grossness is the badge of our devotion

  15. Ha ha! Too funny! This is why we moms can never truly enjoy our shower. Someone is always screaming or doing something naughty. To truly relax, I must wait until dad is home, but by then, I’m usually too tired.

  16. Whenever someone says they don’t use the TV as a babysitter,. I wonder how they ever shower!

    1. Lol, that’s an excellent point! Who are these people …

  17. Haha. That made me laugh until the end. Yes the futility of it all. I was picturis in the diaper smearing session. Haha.

    Loved it!

  18. It never fails. That one, precise, moment you first turn the water on…. something happens! This was a comical post, yet very accurate. Bless you mama.

  19. This is too funny. I love your sense of humor! So much truth to this poem. Thank you for making me laugh and smile this evening.

    1. Thanks! Inspiration hit me in the shower … I blame caffeine

  20. Hahaha… this is why I don’t shower. ­čÖé

    1. Lol, exactly! If you don’t leave the house, no one needs to know …

  21. Love your sense of humor!
