It’s Not Him, It’s You

Nothing spells mom on the verge of a breakdown like a Mom in the waiting room at the pediatrician’s office. Kids are screaming. Babies are coughing. And moms look like they are about to climb the wall. And that’s in the “well waiting area.” The sick waiting area is complete and utter mayhem. Why were … [Read more…]

Scene at Target

I just watched the below link about a woman and her family screaming through Target with a Bible in her hand about the new bathroom policies. Take a minute and watch the video. Woman with Bible protests against Target’s new bathroom policy I then read an article by a publication that I have an immense amount … [Read more…]

The Bullsh*t

It may sound harsh but my tolerance for unnecessary bullshit has rapidly declined since I became a Mom. I think to outsiders it may appear that I have become selfish but I’m at a point in my life where I’m just trying to keep my head above water. And be the best mother I can be. … [Read more…]

My … [Read more…]

Sweet Little Lies

Before I became a Mom I was told all about the highlights of parenting. The ups. The downs. The laughs. The tears. The nights of sleep deprivation. And of course, all the poop I would be wiping on a regular basis. I felt like I had a decent grip on what being a Mom was … [Read more…]

Going Bananas…

Holy sh*t, Mondays are hard. I hate to start a blog as a rant because Moms and supposed to be happy and handle things gracefully and keep their complaining to a minimum. Especially a Mom with ONLY one child. What could be so hard about taking care of one sweet, beautiful, 4 year old? I … [Read more…]
