Are you done yet?

**In order to enjoy this blog, please read in your {friendly} sarcastic voice** Once you decide to reproduce, you are now opening yourself up to constant judgement and ridicule and incessant questions about how many little wonders {gremlins} you will be gracing {burdening} the world's presence with. You learn a lot about society's statutes on family…

Note{s} to Self

I find myself on repeat a lot.  And shockingly, I keep getting the same results.  I keep thinking this will be the one time it is different; where the cause and effect phenomenon will not hold true.  Apparently, that is a sign of insanity.  Momma is gonna take back her sanity and try a little…

Westworld-ly Glorious

WARNING: COULD BE CONSIDERED TO CONTAIN SPOILERS My husband and I love the entertainment industry.  Television and movies... it is our thing.  But, we have opposite taste in these things.  He is more of an 80's action-Rambo-all the Texas Chainsaw remakes kinda guy and I am more of the A Few Good Men - make me…

{Un}Sweet{ened} Dreams

I have been putting kids to bed for nearly the last decade. I have developed a pretty efficient night time routine {in theory}.  There's the mandated quiet time that prefaces bedtime {because if you can just get them to sit still, they will fall asleep.  Foreshadowing: they know that}. Then, the usual: teeth brushing, {bath…

Hatchamable-gate

I love my kids.  A lot.  Dare I say "too much" {if that's a thing}.  I am amazed by all of their sweet little features.  I am in awe of their beautiful personalities.  There isn't anything I wouldn't do for them.  I want to give them the world.  {insert favorite cliches regarding motherhood here}.  A few…

Trolstice: Trauma or Treasure

WARNING: CONTAINS SPOILERS I cannot tell you the number of times I have watched a "kid's movie" with my kids and wondered how it received a G or even PG rating.  There are those that have emotionally complex story lines {think Inside Out} subtle violence {think Tangled and that frying pan} or adult humor {think Deadpool.  Kidding;…

The New Mullet

I was recently introduced to Lularoe.  When it started I just wanted to help a friend earn some rewards at a party.  I thought, "I like leggings so I'll just get a pair to wear around the house."  And ERMAGHERD...obsessed.  Now, if you are anti-Lularoe, I lost you already.  But, hang with me, if you…

Wrongin’ to Right

Everyday that I am with my little people I wonder how I am doing as a parent.  Am I instilling the values I want to instill?  Am I teaching them to be faithful, obedient, compassionate, strong and flexible?  I have no idea. I know that today I failed my daughter.  Getting ready for school she…

Sunday Funday?

I always dread Sundays.  It is the day before Monday.  'nuff said. But, I try to make them relaxing, enjoyable yet productive days for the fam.  Start it off with a big breakfast usually consisting of eggs, breakfast meat, biscuits and if I am really fancy, fruit.  Then, get some laundry done.  And if I…

For Reals.

I.am.rebellling. Against all the social media perfection. Against all those completing the perfect Pinterest projects. Against all those with the ‘charmed’ life. Perfect homes, perfect families, perfect vacations, perfect finances, perfect relationships. I am sure it is not a grand idea to start a blog with a negative, but I did. I am a wife…
