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
So the other day I took my kids to a clothing store so I could buy some summer clothes. Let's face it, as much as we moms try to stay wearing one size from year to year, it doesn't usually pan out. This year I decided that I needed to take my kiddos with me… Continue reading “Mom” Clothes
I don't understand what the problem is. If our kiddos are clean, fed, and cared for that's what matters right? So why do we keep putting other parents down for things? Why do we take it upon ourselves to be total judge mental tards? Yup that's what I said, tards. Better than what I was… Continue reading Sit Down and Shut It Up: Parents Who Talk Bad About Parents.
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 the tiny kiddo is sick again. Pneumonia this time. She is absolutely miserable! After spending the day at the doctor, I have come home to a messy house and I am ready to tear it apart and kill germs. As a mom, I know where the obvious places are. Door knobs, light switches, bathrooms,… Continue reading Sickness Means More Cleaning
I have been sitting here in my quiet house, on a Friday night for an hour now. Husband is working late. The tv is playing but I'm not really watching. I'm sewing on my machine. Listening to the thunderstorms and enjoying the quiet. These nights come so few but I can't help wishing I had… Continue reading Take care of yourself!
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 has anybody ever noticed that if you give a toddler a cookie it ends up in places they didn't even take the cookie? How does that happen? How do they get tiny little crumbs all over places they didn't even go near? Is it magic? Does the dog do it? Do the cookie particles… Continue reading Cookie Crumbs
