Confessions of a Terrible Stay Home Mom

I’ve been thinking about this a lot lately, and I have come to the only logical explanation: I am a terrible stay home mom.  I am.  Don’t misunderstand me; I don’t want to get a traditional job.  I’m totally not into the 9-5 thing.  Staying at home for the last 15 years has completely let that ship sail right out of the harbor.  But as far as staying at home…well…that’s […]

My FAMOUS Hot Sauce

So I added this recipes page to upload some helpful tips for busy parents to make homemade meals on the fly…and then I only posted ONE stinking recipe.  My bad.  I get distracted super easily.  Like this one time when we were… I digress. Here we are on Memorial Day.  Contrary to popular belief, this is NOT National BBQ Day.  Today we remember.  Today we celebrate those who gave their […]

The Wheels on the Bus…Fell OFF!

  Happy Friday, everyone!  Take a good look at this picture.  Have you ever been driving along, and thought, “Hmmm…something just doesn’t seem right…”?  I bet this poor guy thought that exact thing.  I mean, how does something like this even happen?  I have a theory: His wife went out of town. You see, I have been out of town for a week.  I had a conference in Anaheim, California […]

One Year Later…

Well, it’s been roughly one year since I walked across the stage to accept my slip of paper that confirmed I had met all of the required courses needed to fulfill my desired degree plan, thus declaring me a college graduate.  You may all be quietly wondering, just what in the wide world has she done with all of that sophisticated learning? Nothing. Not. One. Single. Thing. Oh wait…that’s not […]

Four on the Floor

I know I cannot be the only parent who has said those words to my kids. I simply cannot be the only one. Especially if you are the proud owners of boy children, phrases such as that chair as four legs, or if you fall, don’t come crying to me, and my personal favorite, why are you on the roof?  A chair with all four legs on the floor is […]

Cringe Worthy Mom Moments pt.2

Happy Saturday!  As promised, here is Part Two of my Top Ten most epic mothering fails.  Mother’s Day is tomorrow, and mommas across the globe await with great expectations to see what their precious offspring have devised in the form of gifts… Will it be another coupon for a free hug?  A card good for one week’s worth of uncomplaining dish-duty? (yes, please) Or will they surprise you and pull […]

Cringe Worthy Mom Moments pt.1

Well folks, Mother’s Day is fast approaching! This Sunday scores of well-meaning children will shower their mothers with slices of burnt toast, spilled orange, and soggy cereal.  We will proudly wear macaroni necklaces and lovingly display ceramic hand prints for all who enter our houses to see. We will feign rest on the couch, while our significant others try to accomplish the feat of maintaining order in our homes without […]

Lock and Key

  So, my mother has been in town for the past week.  All in all it has been a disappointing week—content wise.  My mother has behaved uncharacteristically well.  Turns out, I am a good wife, a good mother, and a decent house-keeper. Who knew? Yesterday we went to the movies to see, Mother’s Day, the new ensemble cast movie that centers around, you guessed it, Mother’s Day.  Some of the […]

Spring Break H20

I didn’t realize how much time had gone by on my blog, until first, I tried to login and couldn’t remember my password, and second, I saw that my last post was about SANTA CLAUS…yes, folks, SANTA CLAUS. Good Grief. Who knew being out of school and unemployed could be so utterly time consuming?  While sitting at home these past six months, consuming mass quantities of chocolate covered bon-bons and […]

The Talk

**WARNING** FOR PARENT EYES ONLY This all started on Friday morning.  Jeff and I were spending a rare day together.  We had some time to work some things out, run some errands, and talk while all of our minions were at school.  Considering that we are two weeks outside of Christmas, we were going to take full advantage of this day…or so I thought. Little did I know, that two […]
