You *Might* Be a Mom When…

The dictionary defines mom as a person’s mother. But, I feel like that doesn’t quite do the whole mom thing justice.  And because it’s Friday, and because most of us are beginning summer break, I thought it would be a good time for us all to redefine being a mom – and laugh. Because – […]

Taking Your Kids to See Cars 3?

When the best offer I have on a Saturday night is to spend it watching a kids movie, Cars 3, you might think I’m mad to say yes. But you see, this offer included food, booze and best of all…no kids! Well, not mine at least.      My evening started out at the Anaheim […]

Not a Fan of Kids

I’m not a fan of kids. There, I’ve said it. I realized that I don’t like other peoples kids.  I love my kids and think my kids are awesome…even my P.I.T.A ( I’ve realized that I don’t like other peoples kids.  I love my kids and think my kids are awesome…even my P.I.T.A (see my […]

The Contest between Chores & Play

“Come, Mama.” Her little voice always seems to summon me for play at the most inconvenient times – amid a never-ending list of cleaning, tidying, organizing, sorting, laundering, and cooking. I’m not always good at stopping, and I will put her off, or even worse dismiss her, explaining that Mommy has to finish this or […]

Dear my sweet, cute P.I.T.A (Pain In The You Know What) Challenging One-Year-Old Today is your first birthday and although we love you, a lot…I still don’t know how we survived your first year.  Let me reminisce for a moment of how we got here. You threw us for a loop when we were told […]

The Parenting Voices

My Internal “Momologues”

Social media takes a lot of heat for making moms feel ‘lesser than.’ And I wholeheartedly agree. For a minute though, I’d like to call out parenting books and parenting experts as huge culprits in causing angst and a feeling of ineptitude across the parent population. Nothing makes me feel like a worse parent than […]

This Won't Be My Life One Day

This Won’t Be My Life One Day

As I sat at my computer the other morning, trying to work on my ever-growing to-do list, I kept hearing, “Mom! Mommy! Mom!” It was only 8:23am and if I’m honest, I was already exasperated with all of the interruptions. “Whaaat?!” I finally exclaimed. Silence. I glanced over and what I saw broke my heart […]

--Motherhood--

Motherhood, I’m Winging It.

Guys, today my almost two-year-old ate fruit snacks for breakfast.  In my defense they were organic! Thank you, Costco. As I allowed this travesty of a breakfast to happen, I realized that I am flying by the seat of my pants.  I just really hope that there isn’t some sort of emergency exit happening anytime soon. I […]

REST

In Defense of REST

Are you ever tired?  Sorry, that’s a silly question!  The answer is YES.  Always. Constantly. So am I.  And because I was so tired, I decided to do something crazy.  I decided to get some rest. WHAT??!!  What is this “REST” you speak of?? I know, I felt the same way when I started.  What […]

My 2017 New Year’s Resolutions

When I was a young single girl, my New Year’s resolutions were always something like go to the gym more often, run a faster mile, lose 10 pounds etc. And usually, I’d be on point about achieving this goal for the first few months of the year, but then good intentions would give way to […]
