I haven’t had one in a long time. A day for just me, that I can do whatever I want to just have a day to say that I can do whatever I want, but maybe not do anything at all. I didn’t know it was going to happen because my husband’s original plan was … More A True Mom Day
I have been on hiatus from my blog. After the summer, heading back to work with the kids back at school has been hectic. Sometimes it makes me think, am I really ready to do this a third time? Honestly, though, some mother might hate me for what I am about to say next. This … More Decaf coffee and lots of chocolate
I had a run in with my three year old today. It happens every now and again, where they decide they won’t eat. Today, it was a cheese sandwich that they decided they didn’t want. But I wasn’t in the room (I got sick of waiting for them to finish), so I didn’t know exactly … More Sticking to your guns
I have been home with the kids for the past week and half. And we have all of August together. Believe me, I am so thankful that my job allows this to happen, because otherwise, I don’t know how we could afford childcare for this time frame. But believe me, it only solidifies why I … More Why I can never be a SAHM (and why I give them SOOOO much credit)
EVERYONE has those days. There isn’t one parent out there who can say that every single day, 24/7, that they want to be a mom or dad all the time. You get frustrated, or you’re tired, or fed up, or everything, or you just can’t do it for no reason at all. But does anyone … More I am completely honest with my kids about how I don’t want to “mom” today.
Good bad TV. Or bad good TV. However you call it, we definitely get sucked in. I had a few hours while I waited for some work stuff to happen, so I got sucked into TLC’s “I didn’t know I was pregnant”. Yes. Have you ever seen it? It’s a ridiculous show that takes you … More How did they NOT know they were pregnant?!?
I have my kids to thank for this one. I have found a few new friends through my kids’ preschool, and I didn’t think I would. You see the posts on Facebook, “Find your mom BFF”, and you are excited about the prospect. But you still think, nope, I’m too old to find new friends. … More Finding new friends at my age
“Am I a bad mother?” This I asked my husband today, as we sat enjoying a peaceful lunch with a few beers and relaxed atmosphere. Was I? Was this typical mother behavior? He assured me, no, I wasn’t, but I couldn’t be sure. Mind you, we haven’t taken a true vacation in almost 10 years. … More I haven’t talked to my kids in a few days…
Non-moms often get a bad rap. They complain about being tired or sick, even though when they are, they don’t normally have a three and five year old begging for food, water, attention or just complaining in general. They are able to rise to any career challenge, and often go far in their careers in … More Why I have respect for non-moms.
I wanted to freeze time today. I stood on our deck in the backyard, overlooking my two littles playing with their swing set. They were on their bellies, running and jumping on their swings, screaming at each other the sweet nothings of childhood. It was truly a moment. They are truly little buddies, but I … More Freeze time
