World War 3 aka Mealtime

It’s 8am.  You’re in the kitchen with your 3yo and you ask her “what do you want for breakfast today?”  Her reply “cereal”.  You glare at her trying to decipher if you believe her or not.  She stares back at you and never blinks.  “Ok…cereal it is.”  And she leaves the kitchen.  But you’re still […]

Doing away with sarcasm in the toddler age

I am one of those unfortunate douchebags who falls back on sarcasm all too frequently. It’s not a great trait. It’s especially not great when in the company of a toddler learning the ins and outs of verbal communication. Cursing has been easier for me to curb than expected with adequate replacements to sub in […]

Resume of a Stay-at-Home Mom

One nagging thought that pops up every so often while being an average-at-best homemaker is returning to work.  Eventually my children will be seen fading into the distance on a yellow school bus and I will be left with a void likely to be filled with gainful employment after a rather unconvincing argument that the […]

Welcome to my Village

On most days if you’d walk into my house, you might think you’ve walked back in time to when dinosaurs and caveman roamed the Earth.   My 3yo is shirtless and probably foraging food off the floor.  I’m probably carrying my baby around on my hip as he’s flailing his arms around and drooling. Often […]

My Child…the Champion of Marathon Eating

Trust me, my kid is worse than yours.  It’s not that she’s super picky. Although, she’s definitely that too.  It’s that she’s insanely distracted and takes longer to eat than a sloth. I’ve tried everything.  Timers, losing privileges, throwing her food away, incentives for finishing, saying she needs to eat fast like a cheetah and […]

28/f/SAHM, u?

Okay, I’ll admit it.  Being a stay at home parent is terribly lonely. When I was pregnant with my first child, my husband and I agreed we did not want daycare and that me staying at home would be an eventual goal once finances allowed.  So, for the first year of my son’s life, I […]
