A Few Of My Favorite Things

"Girls in white dresses with blue satin sashes Snowflakes that stay on my nose and eyelashes Silver-white winters that melt into springs These are a few of my favorite things When the dog bites When the bee stings When I'm feeling sad I simply remember my favorite things And then I don't feel so bad" … Continue reading A Few Of My Favorite Things

One of those days…

Today was one of those days where I am completely happy with my life. I feel so lucky to have my wonderful husband. A man who helps me raise our two children. A man who helps me raise out children to be confident and respectful boys. A man who supports me financially, mentally, and physically. A … Continue reading One of those days…

I’m “That Mom”

This blog is everything!!!
Her other posts are great too and definitely worth checking out. But I am definitely “that mom” and so are so many other moms I know.
You go Mama!

World's Okayest Mom

I’m “That Mom”.
I’m sure you’re reading this, thinking I mean,
I’m the Mom who never misses a PTO meeting“,
I’m the Mom who bathes her kids every night, and reminds them to brush their teeth before bed
or “I’m the Mom who takes her kids to dance lessons on Tuesdays, soccer practice on Wednesdays and piano lessons on Sunday evenings“, but I’m not.
I thought I would be…
I tried to be…
But let’s be real, I’M SELFISH and I enjoy my time at home, with my phone in my hand, no pants on, and a baby on the boob while the older kids play in their rooms. And I think that’s totally fine!

Here’s what kind of “That Mom” I am:

-I’m the Mom who hasn’t brushed her hair in 3 days, and is always in a baseball hat.

10 things I hear WAY too often

These are things I hear my 3 1/2 year old say multiple times a day, every day. Love it or hate it, this is mom life. ❤ "MOM! Tate is bothering me!"

I was afraid of rejection, failure, and loneliness. Now that I'm in my mid 20's (UGH! As of next Saturday I will officially … Continue reading To my younger self;

There are a few reasons for my absence; the biggest one being I've been so busy with homework I haven't felt okay with sitting down to write for my blog if I still had homework to do.

Valentines Day

I kind of dislike Valentines Day. I'm not even single and I dislike it. I don't dislike it because 'it's such a hallmark holiday' blah blah blah bull shit. Maybe it's just me, but Valentines Day is really stressful, which is why I don't like it. I am normally a person who loves giving gifts. … Continue reading Valentines Day

Things Non-Parents Don’t Understand

We only have one couple friend that has kids so the rest of our friends just don't understand the struggle that comes with having children. Especially young children. They are usually pretty good, but there are times that I just want to smack them for their lack of common sense and/or empathy. So, to all … Continue reading Things Non-Parents Don’t Understand
