DON’T LAUGH.

I am pretty positive every parent experiences those moments when their sweet child does something completely unacceptable but 100% hilarious and you can’t help but laugh rather than discipline. This happens to me like 10X a day, so I might have a slight problem but I can’t help myself.  I mean, it’s not my fault that she’s so cute and funny while also being a sassy mess. I honestly find myself turning around or hiding my face from her multiple times a day because I know I shouldn’t laugh but apparently I’m super immature. Although, I truly don’t have anyone…

THE TERRIBLE WHINE.

I can pretty confidently say that I have made it thus far through parenting due to three things. 1. All my supporters (aka..the hubby, my family, and BFF’s), 2. My Netflix addiction, and 3. My love of wine. These three things have pretty much been there for me since I had my sweet girl. They helped me through the late nights, vomit stained clothes, and leaky diapers. They are pretty much my superheroes. I guess I must have thought that I was doing a pretty good job myself because I decided adding another baby to the mix was doable, which…

SAVE WATER, SHOWER TOGETHER.

We have all heard the infamous saying, “save water, shower together” and we have all also probably thought it was somewhat of a funny or sexy way of getting your significant other to join you in the shower…IN MY DREAMS… My daughter has never once taken an interest in what a shower even is until recently. She has always seen the shower as a way to¬† make mama disappear suddenly and then return 10 minutes later. A trick she often didn’t approve of but mama’s need to feel clean too.. A few weeks ago, daddy had to run an errand…

BEFORE PREGNANCY VS. DURING PREGNANCY.

I swear half of the things I said I would do next time I was pregnant was just a giant lie to myself to make me feel better. Ok, maybe not a lie but definitely a fib. I mean don’t get me wrong I do the things I said I would but just not as well as I originally pretended to believe…. __________________________________________________ Before I was pregnant: I am going to eat so healthy during my next pregnancy. During my¬†pregnancy: “Babe, don’t forget the cheetoh puffs, pringles, bunch a crunch, and French fries from the store.” __________________________________________________ Before I was…

LET’S GET NAKED & TRAIN – POTTY TRAINING TIPS.

Let me start by saying I am not a miracle worker, potty whisperer, or knowledgeable on the subject at all. In fact I have never read a potty training book or article in my life (ok, that’s a lie I have skimmed one or two of the bolded areas of an article..) I wasn’t even sure where to start or when “training” was supposed to be over. I personally felt like this was a boot camp for my kid to learn how to aim her potty into the right bowl. But.. whatever I did worked for my little Lo and…

KEEPING WHITES WHITE.

I can’t even tell you how many times I have gotten compliments on how I keep my whites so white. I never really thought about it but I honestly think it’s because I never spill on them, which is super crazy because I spill everything. (It’s a family curse .)  Of course, that changed slightly once I had a kid of my own. Not only did I have to protect my whites from myself, but also my daughter. This is actually a terrifying thought. I can honestly say there hasn’t been one day that my daughter hasn’t gotten some sort…

A FAMILY CURSE.

If you know my “original” family very well you probably already know what my family curse is. And when I say original I don’t mean vampires, I mean my parents and my brother. (I am positive there is a name for it but I am blanking as usual.) I am certain we have multiple family curses, because we all have exactly the same issues but we will just focus on the one for this post. Original Family Curse: We spill something at least once a day. If we are attending any sort of a party or event you can multiply…

BROWNIES FOR BREAKFAST.

Last night we made brownies after the little one went to bed in hopes of not getting her all crazy before night night time. Of course we didn’t eat the whole pan (this time) so we had a lot left over in the  morning. Lo being the dessert detective that she is spotted them instantly in the morning and wouldn’t stop asking about them. She has never had a brownie before (mostly because we never make them) so she was extra intrigued. Since it was only 8 am we didn’t really want her eating a bunch of sweets, especially since…

PDA POLICE.

We have all heard of PDA (Public Display of Affection, I think…). I remember being in school and teachers and students yelling PDA when a girl and boy would hug or kiss. It was like a warzone, a teacher would be 100ft from two kids at their lockers and you’d hear them yelling for them to separate like it was life or death. Well lucky for me and my hubby our daughter Lo has decided to take on the PDA police roll, Yay… I am not kidding she’s a nut, worse than those teachers in school. It feels like I…

EW.

My daughter has recently discovered the word Ew and it has quickly become a favorite. I have been saying it quite a bit lately and I suppose she picked up on it. For instance… She doesn’t sit still while changing her poopy diapers so I end up with poop on me. Ew. She decided mushing up her food was better than actually eating it and wiping it all over my arms is even better. Ew. She also likes to clean up her runny boogies with her own hands, which inevitably ends up all the way up her arm and then…
