Make-It-Work: Mom Solutions During the Less Than Ideal Situations


For this Friday’s Green Eggs and Mom’s post, I decided to relay some anecdotes inspired by one of my favorite Tim Gunn lines:  MAKE IT WORK!

My Mommyology Make-it-work-Mom Moments

What would you do if you had to walk around Disney with Baby Poop on your shirt? 😉

Sometimes I actually think that’s what motherhood is about anyway.  You get caught up in these awkward, weird, stressful, less-than-ideal situations with your kids and you just have to find a way to make it all work out.  Don’t you feel that way sometimes?  There’s nothing in the books or mom shows that will prepare you for them anyway.  They just happen!

A lot of the times in retrospect they’re funny.  Hilarious actually — and even when I think about some of the ones I’ve been caught in, I wonder how I (we – children included) made it out of there alive!  😉

I shared a few Make-it-Work Mom Moments over at Anne’s but I would love to hear some of yours!  See if any resonate with you in some way.

Enjoy and happy Friday!

I am the mom that I am because of my two wonderful little girls. They teach me everyday.


  1. Haha! Gotta love baby poop. Better on your shirt than in your mouth is all I have to say. Believe me, I know.

  2. Thank you so much for this… very funny and really love the baby poop photo!

  3. Just the other day, my daughter accidentally poured a glass full of ice cold water on me while on a restaurant. Finished my lunch and shopping, wearing wet pants(undies included!). 🙂
