So as parents we are supposed to teach our kiddos how to be decent human beings. We start young with how not to color on tables and walls. Then we graduate to things like don't chew with your mouth open, and clean up your mess. One thing I've seen that drives me nuts is when… Continue reading Don’t Leave Before you Clean!
I don't know about y'all, but making friends with other moms is hard. What if they raise their kids different? What if I slip up and cuss in front of their kiddos? What if they think I'm a terrible person? Truth is. That sh*t don't matter. Yes. That is right. It DOESN'T matter. It doesn't… Continue reading Mom Friends.
So do you remember that day last week when the dishes were piled up? That day when you spilt the drink on your laptop? That day when your kiddo said "mom" 3,789,456 times?

But one of the things I found fairly easy was taking away my kids pacifiers. No matter what you call… Continue reading Weaning off the Pacifier
So my toddler is becoming a real pro at tricking me. She's slick. One of the things that she has recently got me with is naptime. She acts tired like she might lay down and then BAM. She's bouncing around like somebody gave her a bag of Skittles. Hopefully nobody hid a bag in her… Continue reading We Have a Trickster in the House
