Today on Celebrity Cribs, we’ll be visiting the eclectic Momplex Estate for an insider’s peek at how stay-at-home moms really live it up. Momplex Mom tells us how she achieved her unique look in just one year. “I used to call it the ‘Hell, No, You Can’t Just Drop By’ look,” she says. “But you know, it’s sort of Jackson Pollack meets Linda Blair meets Sanford and Son, and it really says something about who I am — and my craft. People often ask me how I achieve this level of complexity in design, and I always say, ‘Well, I sort of just let life take a big dump in my den, you know? It ain’t no design. It’s livin’.”

Like a magpie, I've always been drawn to things that have sparkle, from rhinestone-embellished housewares to gold lamé get-ups in second-hand stores to shoes that reflect in the sun. But in my interactions with the world, oh, how I can fixate on the not-sparkly stuff: ill-timed traffic lights, a web page that won't load, the impolite server. Post-pandemic, I took to saying, "Everything's broken, and nothing works." It's not good for the soul, and as a lifelong writer, I've noticed it's also not good for creativity. This blog is about redirecting my attention to what's good in the world -- seeking and finding joy in the same way I notice sparkly objects around me -- and writing about it. There is an old nursery rhyme about magpies, "One for Sorrow," which tells us a solitary magpie symbolizes sorrow, but two magpies symbolize joy. This blog is about looking harder for the good stuff. Here's to finding those second magpies. View all posts by Jenny

You are hilarious! I love how you own it, girl.
You are a funny, funny chick.
Celebrity cribs has nothin’ on you!! I’m glad to know I’m not the only one who can, at any moment in time, find a wadded up diaper somewhere on the floor!
This is hilarious. And if that is the size of your recurring pile of crap, I’m in awe. It’s tiny compared to the crap piled up around our house.
You are SO funny. (And cute – look at you!) I especially like your modest “reoccurring pile of crap.” If your crib were as fresh as mine, the pile would sprawl across your rooms, through your garage and out into the backyard.
omg, this is hilariously funny – I can relate.
I only have one child but:
I keep diapers and wipes in the living room just in case
There are always wades of tissue or wipes around bcus the boy is obsessed with wiping his nose
Spotty clothes, urggggggggh, everyday!
Side seam of skirt…constantly
Recurring piles of clothes, toys, etc in the living room and in odd places
Oh and the T.V. now has crayon marks becus someone decided to use it as an easel (umm, I guess I shld clean it off..um eventually)!
This cracked me up.
