I’m not just a Mom… I am a Multi-Hyphenite!

When you have six kids and 3 business the survival of motherhood becomes a challenge. You are not just a mom, you are not just a boss, you are not just a house keeper or a wife. You are a multi-hyphenate woman! Just one word could not define you.

I can hardly believe I have been a mom for 9 years. I know that it is a very long time, but with six children under my wing, I think I can claim the motherhood badge! 

 
When I brought my firstborn home, I had no idea who I was. How was I a mom, and a wife, and a business woman, a cook, and house keeper? Could I be all of these things and more? 
 
Yes. Yes, I can. And I am! 
 
I am a multi-hyphenate! My multitasking skills are not always exactly perfect, but I am determined to rock out being a woman of many jobs and embrace the chaos and crazy.

I am a Kid Wrangling-Laundry Tackling-Kitchen Mastering-Mess Conquering-Boss Mom!

I am a Mom Multi-Hyphenite-5

Let’s just say kid wrangling is the best way to describe our house full of little people.

The twin 3 year old girls alone can be a full time wrangling job! They like to go in two different directions and giggle with hysteria as they run!

Four boys… Well, we are no strangers to wrestling, using our little brother as target practice, cuts and scrapes, and ridiculous jokes.
 
Yes. Wrangling is exactly the term I would use both at home and when we go out. 

Can we talk about laundry for a moment?  

Laundry is my nemesis. I truly believe it has an evil plot to take over my house.
 
Somehow, every night it multiplies…
 
I am a Mom Multi-Hyphenite.-1
 
I kid you not, but every week as I am tackling the laundry pile, I think to myself… “Didn’t I JUST do this????”
 
I am a Laundry Tackling Ninja!

The kitchen is my happy place in my home.

I will freely admit that I LOVE food! I love flavors and textures and sweet and salty.
 
Since I have to feed my crazy brood of six children and a very hungry husband… I may as well make it epic and become a Kitchen Master!

Creating new recipes in the kitchen for my family and guests is truly a favorite of mine. Whether it’s a triple batch of meatballs, a cheesecake, or grilling a feast for all of our neighbors, I love it all!
 
Maybe not the mess….. But hey, it’s a part of being a kitchen master… And apparently, my children believe I am mean because I make them help unload the dishwasher… You eat… You clean!

Mess Conquering made it into my multi-hyphenate right away!

Obviously, with six children there is no shortage of spilled milk, pee’d on sheets, muddy feet and hands, and finger prints…. Oh Lord, the FINGERPRINTS!!!!
 
The germs and the dirt… They try to win… But I conquer them with Clorox® Disinfecting Wipes! I love how easy it is to grab a wipe and quickly tackle whatever mess my kids throw at me.

Clorox® Disinfecting Wipes are a Multi-Hyphenate themselves! They are the all-purpose-cleaner-disinfecter-and-scrubber-if-you-need-it-wipe.
 
Clorox® Disinfecting Wipes help kill germs and bacteria, and remove kitchen grease and countless other nasty things my children find and bring in my home.
 
I am thankful that Clorox® Disinfecting Wipes help kill 99.9% of germs that can live on surfaces for up to 48 hours, as well as 99.9% of viruses* and bacteria – plus Staph, E. Coli, salmonella and strep.
 
Multi-Hyphenite Mom
 
This mamma needs all the help she can get with keeping the dirt and germs away! 
 
I have been known to take Clorox® Disinfecting Wipes directly to the walls. Why do kids need to hold everything but the railing on the stairs??? Why? 

I am a Boss Mom 

I am an entrepreneur. I am a creative. I put myself out there and work hard to put my big dreams into action.
 
I am thankful to be able to not only write this blog and be an influencer, but I also own a tanning salon and boutique.

Working hard for my family makes me happy! Creating my leather jewelry line and marketing my products, blog and business to helps support our family and challenges me everyday! 

Being a Multi-Hyphenite is kind of fun! I stopped letting just one job or word define me. 

I fully expect my Multi-Hyphenite to change in the next few years as the kids get older. Maybe baseball-mom and cheer-mom and car-pool driving will be added to the long list that defines me and what I do!
 
No matter what is added I know Clorox® Disinfecting Wipes can keep up with my Multi-Hyphenate! They help me while I wrangle my kids-to keep the house clean and germ free-clean up in the kitchen after an epic meal for 8-erase fingerprints from every surface in my house-and keep my business germ free and spotless!
 
I am sure that you are like me.  And not just one word can define you as a mom, a woman, a beautiful person!

Tell Me: What would your multi-hyphenate Cleaning Name be? Use your first name and the surface you clean the most on a daily/weekly/monthly basis and “Scrubber”

Example: Keikilani Toilet-Scrubber

    Girl, you totally nailed this one. We are a chef, chauffeur, nurse and so much more. It’s great when we can combine a task but know it isn’t always possible. Oh, and my name would be Rebecca-sink-scrubber. I swear the men in my home do not know how to wipe up toothpaste.

    Yes, we are all multi-hyphenites! I can’t even imagine how much cleaning up you have to do with your 6 kids. My house always looked like a mess with only 2 kids! You look so relaxed and it’s impressive that you are doing all of this with such grace.

    As a mom of seven I can relate on so many levels! I don’t have twins but I do have three under three and they’re such a handful! My laundry is piled just as high, and I often take Clorox wipes to wall too!

    These wipes sound fantastic. I mean, if you’ve never cleaned your house with a wet wipe can you even call yourself a parent? LOL. This is just taking that a step further, and making our lives easier. I think they’re a great idea. And can I just say what an awesome lady you are. Juggling 6 kids and 3 businesses can’t be an easy task!

    This is great! Yes we are all multi-hyphenites! I have those wipes on hand too! They make cleaning the bathroom and kitchen so much easier and pretty much use them everywhere. Even keep them in the car for messy road trips. 🙂
