When I was a kid I didn't have a tablet. No lap tops, no game consoles that accessed the world wide web. I had a box in the living room that we could play mine sweep or solitaire on but it took twenty minutes or so to boot up. I spent most of my summer… Continue reading Technology Sucks
It's 4am. I'm awake for the 4th night in a row because my almost 7 year old is all of a sudden terrified of literally everything. She won't sleep all night. She won't sleep without a light (and we talking something bright enough to see from space). She won't play outside for fear of blood… Continue reading Noises, Bugs and Nightmares
I've mentioned before that being a mom is hard work. It is. It's all amazing and horrible at the same time. There's so many things that we can do, but really can't do. If your thinking about having kids of your own, you should know that all of things I'm about to mention are a… Continue reading Things Moms can do, but really can’t.
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 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
So there a lot of hype about being a stay at home mom. We are over worked, under paid, and sometimes we give off the impression that we really don't do a whole lot of nothing. So I decided to share my day with everyone. Hope we can clear up some of the confusion. (So… Continue reading Sure I sit all day.. that’s what SAHM’s do.
So I've been trying to get my tiny kiddo to sleep in her own bed for months. I swore when she was an infant that she would sleep in her own bed and not co-sleep with us but that was a flop. She was in her crib until she was old enough to figure out… Continue reading The Bedtime Fight, Getting my Toddler in her own Bed.
Sooo hi there. How was your day? We're your kiddos behaved? My day was great! My kiddos were super behaved except the normal sibling bickering and fighting. I spent all day cleaning. All. Day. Long. I'm sure that everything I'm about to say is exactly how every other mom on the planet feels about cleaning.… Continue reading Cleaning.. For a Mom
Today I rocked at mom life. I mean rocked it. The kids were fed. The dogs were fed. The laundry is done ... Well not anymore. But it was I swear! The dishes are done. I played blocks today. I read a book today. I went outside (gasp) and got the mail. I made tortellini… Continue reading Feeling accomplished
