Is Multi-Tasking Something Moms are Just Born With?

Feb 26, 2015 by

I joke with my husband all the time about this- His multi-tasking “skills” are less than stellar.  Actually, they’re pretty much nonexistent.  Forget about rubbing his stomach and patting his head at the same time- If he could empty the dishwasher while a pot of water is boiling on the stove to make spaghetti for dinner, I would re-marry him all over again and take him on a second honeymoon to Vegas.  I’ve seen stories- You’ve seen stories- affirming the excellence by women to multitask.  I swear it’s not something that moms are good at, but it’s something that we HAVE to be good at to SURVIVE.  Seriously. Multitasking is our best asset in a survival of the fittest type of working mom world we live in!

Which brings me to this lovely lady.  Say Hi! Olivia!

An A-Ha Moment at Target

Feb 19, 2015 by

We all love a good deal.  I will, if I have the time, shop around for a good deal.  Not as much now that I’m shopping with two children in tow, but I do what I can, when I can!  And today, man. I struck the JACKPOT!  It was a savings “life hack,” to use the parlance of our time.  I’m not really sure it would have been classified as a “life hack” in a world without Pinterest, but I found a great deal, and I’m here to talk about it!

Those Grocery Store Cookies

Feb 12, 2015 by

We’ve all been there- in a rush (per usual), up against a deadline at work, and it’s either someone’s birthday or Holiday at school. And you, for some crazy reason, decided a week ago to be a hero and volunteer to bring cookies to your kid’s class. What were you thinking???! Well thank God for the bakery department at the grocery store- those soft vanilla sugar cookies- perfect for kids, with their soft texture, sprinkles, and obnoxious neon colored frosting. YES! Grocery store cookies for the WIN! You waltz through the automatic doors of the store, and hold your head high as you pick up two big containers of those cookies. You GO, Hero. The day is yours.

But here’s the catch- the cookies are pricy, made with whoknowswhat lard? Too much sugar? Weird preservatives? Cue the guilt, aisle 2, please.

Well, not anymore, you Cookie Loving Volunteer Happy Mom, You!!

The Mom in Me

Feb 5, 2015 by

I was sitting in a meeting today, and was thinking about what to get my husband for Valentine’s Day.  Nothing too big, but a few sweet things like his favorite candy, a few scratch off tickets, and a framed picture of us to put in his new office.  I started scrolling through the pictures on my iPhone to find a recent one.  Now I’m not super picky about this- I only have a few requirements: the two of us looking at the camera at the same time, no shine on our foreheads, and, well, us looking cute.  I found nothing that met this description.  I kid you not- literally every picture on my phone are pictures of kids, craft projects, and food.  Mike and I are intermingled in this web of cupcakes, painted shells, and kids doing kid things, but like, um…. none of us looking like US.

I am a mom of a boy.  He’s totally a boys boy.  Lover of all things ROAR! and VROOM! and FAST! and CRASH!  So when thinking about Valentine’s Day, the lovingest, pinkest, and sweetest holiday of the year, I needed to be choosy about the love messages my main man would be sending out to all of his friends at school.  There’s no secret about this- the boy LOVES SHARKS.

Seriously- how many shark shirts can one boy have? Answer- as many as he dang well pleases!

We do shark crafts.
