Mommy Brain Mixer {Read, share, Link up}

Happy Thursday!
I'm super excited to be part of the Mommy-Brain Mixer with Cassie.
Before I let her take over and explain the link up rules,
I'm going to share my Halloween costume with all of you.

I went as Mother of the Year.
No really look.

I have all the right accessories.
No make-up face.
Serious baggage under my eyes.
Two day old dirty hair, with a Pinterest inspired side pony.
Old Navy Halloween shirt circa 2008.
Old grey hoodie, and jeans.
Worn out, hole in the toe, Toms.
Infinity scarf.

Not pictured:
Kids that ate cupcakes and pizza for dinner.
They ate more cupcakes than pizza.
Kids that ate more candy than necessary before bed.
Messy kitchen from baking cupcakes for the neighborhood kids.
Mix boxes from said cupcakes.
Delivery box from said pizza.
Homework untouched.

Setting this post up because I'm late to the party.

So being mother of the year wasn't such a stretch...

Now, let's let Cassie give you the deets on today's Mixer!

Welcome to week 15 of the Mommy-Brain Mixer, ladies!

Last week we had a wonderful 92 link-ups! The Mixer is thriving!

If you haven't noticed, one of my favorite things to do here at Two In Diapers is to share stories about motherhood and my littles. One of my favorite things about sharing these stories is your comments with stories of your own children!

Welcome to...

At the Mommy-Brain Mixer, we will be linking up our writings about anything and everything motherhood!

We want to see funny posts, serious posts, sweet & sappy stories, mommy-brain episodes, memories from when your older children were younger, thoughts & lessons learned, and anything related to motherhood or little people. You know that post you wrote yesterday about your teething baby? Or that hilarious post you wrote about your 2nd grader's school play? Those are perfect, so link 'em up! 

The Mommy-Brain Mixer is the perfect place to find some great new blogs to follow, make some wonderful new blog friends, and enjoy some entertaining new reads!

To make things even more fun, my friend Mar, over at Raising Bean, is hosting a sister link-up
for you to join, too!

Head on over there after your finished here and link up your recipes, DIY, arts & crafts, and sensory activities!

    1. Oops! I was trying to edit my typing with a little one adding in his own letters! I love your costume idea, I usually go 3 days before washing my hair! I love dry shampoo. :) Now following via Bloglovin'

  3. New follower from the blog hop! Can't wait to see more :)

  4. New follower from the mixer! I actually went as super mom last night. I wore a cape one of my boys had and basically that was it!

  5. Thank you for co-hosting!
    Following/commeting from the Mommy brain mixer! I hope you'll come and do the same :)

  6. Your post cracked me up. LOL. I completely understand... the weather was so bad that my twins couldn't go out trick or treating, so we had a "party" instead. For dinner last night, they had cupcakes, M&M's and cookies. Yowza. Bed time was a little rough.


  7. Pretty funny and makes much sense. Whoever said Mother of the Year was all perfect and all together. Congrats on co hosting Mommy Brain Mixer! I connected to your gfc and hope you will connect with mine at

  8. LOVE your costume, especially given the title of my blog ;) Perfect! Fun to co-host with you today!

  9. I happen to love your costume. Totally mom-style, one of my new faves :) Funny, before I had my daughter, you'd never find me without makeup or without my trusty flat-iron. Now I love those days when I can stay in yoga pants and a sweatshirt, sans makeup and my hair in the usual mom bun. Gotta just embrace it!

    It's been fun co-hosting the mixer with you! I'm a new follower and look forward to reading more. Come stop by!

  10. Haha. I love your "outfit" for Halloween. I'm not sure what else you could've added to make it even more mommylike. Perhaps a smudge of food on your hoodie? Fun post, Megan. No shame in pizza & cuppies.

  11. Lol, Megan! LOVE it! Sounds like you definitely deserve mother of the year for giving your kids such an awesome night! P.S. - our night wasn't really too different than yours... :) Thanks again for co-hosting - it's been SO fun to have you!

  12. Soo funny, love it! New follower from the blog hop!! Thanks for co-hosting!!

  13. Totally relate to this!! Thanks for hosting - I'm a new follower on GFC!
