Who’s being punished here?

Okay, so in our household watching television is a privilege and the children are well aware of this fact.  If you are a good listener, respectful of others and their things, and listen to mom, dad, and teachers than you have earned that privilege (truth be told, they have only lost that privilege a couple of […]

Wednesday’s what would you do?

Let me set the scene… So, we got home late last night from my parent’s house so the kiddos went directly to bed without making their lunches. Our 6 and 4 year olds fell fast asleep but the 17 month old had a high fever followed by crazy coughing fits.  So I gave her some […]

Chex Party Mix Exchange: Convenient, FUN, and did I mention convenient?

In celebration of the New Year one of our Playgroup Moms  hosted a Chex Party Mix Exchange and it was a blast! I have to admit I was a little leery at first since I have never made a Chex Mix.  I always thought you had to have a microwave and since we got rid of ours I […]

Working Mom vs. SAHM

While reading an article the other day I had an epiphany. The article was discussing the ongoing mommy war of Working moms vs. Stay at home moms which I have often found to be moronic. As soon as a woman is given the title mom she is working.  She is physically, mentally, and emotionally on […]

Thankful Thursday: That’s not mud, a new kind of mommy guilt, and having it all!

As I stand here cleaning dirty diapers I find myself reflecting on this morning and desperately trying to recall all the make that, any thankful moments. It is kind of like grasping at straws at this point. Run down of this morning…. I guess it all started last night. Our toddler, once again, got up […]

Bathroom Remodeling

Okay, so last night my toddler awoke at 2am and she refused to go back to sleep in her crib so I brought her to bed with us hoping both her and I would go back to sleep. Instead, she fell asleep in seconds and I laid in bed staring up at the ceiling thinking about random […]
