you know you're a M.O.M. when......

.......your arm hair stands at attention the second your child is pooping in the corner, tub, pool, etc.

Sorry for the potty words but it's true! Sometimes we may ignore our intuition because we don't want to deal with it. The fact remains we do have SUPERpowers, the power to sense poop danger.

I hope you all are enjoying the public pools! Don't ignore the arm hair standing at attention.

you know you're a M.O.M. when.......

.......your brilliance is measured by how creative you are and you are the only one telling your self your brilliant!

Ok, maybe not the only one telling you that, but I do say it to myself the most. My kids get sick of me answering them or coming up with a creative idea and then following it up with "I'm BRILLIANT!" I just hope they pick up on the compliment and at the very least say it to themselves like I do.

I have a lot of crazy ideas floating around in this head of mine and I love it when I see the fruit of my thoughts. What creative fruit have you or do you want to see?

cousin lovin

One of the curses of this summer if that some of our cousins are MIA. Their life adventures took them to two different sides of the USA and our hearts miss them lots. We love all of these kiddos and all the amazing times we have had. We look forward to the fun times we will have visiting them at their new homes. Till we embrace again!

you know you're a M.O.M. when......

.......summer time is a joy and a curse.

Share with me pics of how you love and hate the summer time.

times change, WHY?

At this time of war against M.O.M.s I wander why we have evolved to SUPER MOM?

Throughout time moms have had "help" be it wet nurses, nannies, governesses, etc.  Now I am in NO way saying that the "help" was always rightfully compensated or morally justified, but the actual "help" I agree with, WHY oh WHY did it go away? Why am I expected to raise well groomed, accomplished, intelligent, inspiring young beings ALL on my own? Maybe this is why children are so difficult in this day and age because us parents are out numbered? AND expected to be SUPER and to use all of our talents and resources to "Make the world a better place, for you and for me and the entire human race"?

Here's my solution.....bring back "The Brady Bunch Alice" (without judgement from my neighbors, friends or acquaintances about why can't I do it on my own house) as the normal standard of life, what do you think?
You know The Brady Bunch days where nothing terrible ever happened. haha

you know you're a M.O.M when.....

.....Calgon is calling and you just can't get there.
Some of you may not remember the old Calgon commercials that had a woman is a bathtub full of Calgon bubbles and she's saying "Calgon take me away". 

This last week with the Rock has been tough, no matter how much sensory input I give it's not enough. There's been a lot of screaming, tantrums and destruction. Not much sleep happening either. I know this too shall pass, but for now the Calgon's calling and I just can't get there, soon.....hopefully.
