Does your car look totally "Mom-ified," with spare EVERYTHING stowed somewhere (clothes, snacks, water, sunscreen, bucket-and-trash-bags-to-double-as-a-potty)? Crazy bumper stickers or window decals? An avalanche of crumbs under the car seats?

Well, we want to see pics! We'll use the best ones in an upcoming slideshow on The Stir. Post yours here!

I just cleaned it out on Monday when it was finally warm enough. It was not pretty after the long winter!

Besides the carseats, you wouldnt know i was a mom.  I keep my car pretty tidy and clutter free.

 Mine is just a clean, clutter-free van.

My car doesn't have anything like that, but a bucket and trash bags for a potty is genius! Especially if you are potty training!

I have snacks, water, wipes, diapers, pull ups, I change of clothes per kid. Plastic bags for soiled diapers/clothes, books and kid magazines.

You can't tell it's there because it's in the stowaway storage part of my van. I have 5 car seats though so that screams mom. Lol.

Uh.....no.  My van has car seats and a stroller visible.  I suppose it being a van is enough to scream "mom"; but I don't keep a ton of extra crap in it.

This was a fortuitous find for me one summer, when a kid desperately needed to poop and we were nowhere near a bathroom and VOILA: sand pail + 4-gallon trash bags I always keep in a roll in the glove compartment = instant potty. LOL.
