The Man Cold Vs The Mom Cold

No one likes to be sick, but as a Mom, I never get to take a sick day.

Take a look at the difference between a “Man Cold” and a “Mom Cold.” Does your man suffer this affliction? Share with someone who can relate. Don’t get me wrong, I love the Business Manager, but when he gets a cold,...

Take a look at this weeks video “Moms Gone Savage” and let me know if  you can relate.  Each day we get up and take care of the kids, the pets, the house, the errands, and sometimes it is necessary to go “Mom Savage!” I probably go savage a few times a day.

Mom Guilt Party of One

Today’s post is targeted at new Mom’s or soon to be Moms. Becoming a Mom is a wonderful, scary, life altering journey that no one is really ready for. Think back to the conversation you had when you decided to have a baby. The discussion about about having enough money, or time, or help. My statement was most likely similar to most women, pleading with my husband, “We will never have enough time or money, but I want to have a baby.” So we did in fact have not one, but three babies over the course of four years....

YOU’RE A MOM NOT A MARTYR

It is easy to get lost if you don’t have a map. There is really no handbook for parenting. It sucks you in and it changes you. You worry like you’ve never worried before. You find joy like you’ve never found before. You are so scared that you will screw up these tiny humans by not being enough. A few years ago I realized that I cannot be everyone’s everything and that is OK. I need to be me as well as a wife and a Mom. I need to know who I am in order to be the...

How Kid’s Interpret The Things Their Parents Say

I had surgery last week and my daughter announced to the entire soccer field that, “My Mom can’t come to practice today because she is doing a poop test.” I had to do colon prep and wasn’t physically able to make it away from the bathroom. I told her that I needed to stay close to the bathroom and her interpretation was that I was doing a “poop test.” Kids seem to have a knack for spreading family secrets and having a slightly skewed interpretation of our conversations. So if you ever meet up with one of my children...

TO THE MOM WHO FEELS INVISIBLE

The Closet Intervention

    Once I started having children I rarely ever bought anything for myself, let alone not from the clearance rack. I have always been a JCPenney shopper for my kids, but I was so excited to find so many fashionable items for myself at such affordable prices. Having worked from home the past few years, I live in my sweats. Now that I travel for work my closet needed a heavy make over. My closet is happy, my wallet is happy – which means the Business Manager is happy and I am extremely happy. Eric was a great...
