Blogging-The Double Life

Blogging-The Double Life
I started blogging a few months after my son was born around late October of 2012. My blog became an avenue to help me cope with being a new mom, postpartum depression, and way to avoid jail time for murdering my partner. I had a rough go of it at first. Oddly enough, it really... Read more »

Petty Theft

Petty Theft
As we all know,  toddlers are extremely curious about their surroundings. They are absorbing everything through all of their senses. My little nugget likes to touch things and than look at them..with her hands. Unfortunately, everything goes in her pockets. I have to check her pants and coat pockets before I do laundry. Isn’t this... Read more »

Brain Fog-Mommy Brain Strikes Again!

Brain Fog-Mommy Brain Strikes Again!
I think I am losing my mind. I am blaming all of this on my toddler. Some may think this is cruel, it is not. It is accurate. I can’t remember half the shit I am suppose to do. I even write it down or put it my calendar and I still manage to forget.... Read more »

When I read what this week’s Theme Thursday topic was about, I really balked at the idea of participating. Breastfeeding. This subject in more controversial than drinking and smoking during pregnancy. I knew there would be judgement and ridicule  But then I thought, oh, what the hell. Like that has stopped me before. The moment I... Read more »

Out of the Mouths of Babes...

Out of the Mouths of Babes...
I never really am surprised of what comes out of my 3 year old daughter’s mouth.  After all, she has two mouthy older siblings and is quick to soak in everything that her parents say. What I am surprised about is HOW the words come out of her mouth. I was in the bathroom giving... Read more »

The Joy of Aging-"Older Moms" and Toddlers
Have you ever been somewhere and someone mistakes your status in life? I had my daughter at the doctor’s for a wellness check and the nurse said to me “Hi grandma, is mom coming today?”.  I gave her the evil eye and informed her I was mom. She looked at me like I was lying. ... Read more »

I Love Pinterest!

I Love Pinterest!
I don’t have a “throw it together and create yumminess” bone in my body. I never was really taught to cook. My mom was a good cook but she didn’t just whip things together with what she found in the fridge and create a Betty Crocker worthy meal. She wasn’t overly creative and when she... Read more »

Sugar High

Sugar High
I love chocolate. Snickers, M&M’s, Baby Ruth, Twix, and Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups. I could go on but I am starting to make my mouth water. The craving for chocolate is magnified by 1 million when I have PMS.  The older I get the worse PMS gets hence the chocolate cravings are increasing rapidly. Recently,... Read more »
