So this morning while waiting for the school bus, my 6 yr old and I had a conversation about when she was 3 years old. I had asked her what she wanted to be when she grew up, and she told me a watermelon. Yes you read that correctly. She was striving for excellence and… Continue reading When I grow up I want to be a watermelon.
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.
So when I became a mom, I figured out that naptime was like, the best thing ever. I mean seriously, if you haven't enjoyed the time your kiddos are napping to the fullest you are missing out.

So I recently started trying to potty train my toddler. Trying being the key word. She will NOT go on the toilet. She sits on there and takes to me like she's in a chair at the salon. She plays with the toilet paper roll and messes with the bottles of shampoo on the tub,… Continue reading Potty Training
I thought I had a while before I had to worry about boys, sex, drugs and other perfectly normal but still terrifying things that teenage girls go through. I don't. It's here. And it smacked me right in the face. How do we approach this time in their lives? I mean.. parents don't know anything… Continue reading Letter to my Daughter
Sooo here I am again. Waiting for that school day to end. Hoping my 6 year old is in a fabulous mood when she gets home. I sat here thinking about what to write about it and I had, yet again an ah ha! moment. The name of my blog. So Kuddos and Kiddos. Is… Continue reading It’s all in a Name
So this might come as a shock, but I'm not your normal mom. I mean what is normal anyways? Seriously? Normal. Pfft. I don't have a clue what that is. I know for me normal is a screaming toddler in your arms because she refused to walk and hold your hand… Continue reading Normal
A few years ago I asked my husband for a sewing machine. I'd never used one. I had no idea how to use one, but I wanted one. I wanted to sew. I wanted to create things. I wanted to share my crafty gift with my friends and family. What better way to that?… Continue reading Sewing the Stress Away
