It May Be Hump Day but to me It’s Like Monday

I sit here at my desk with so many things I could be writing and sharing with you all, but to formulate one simple blog post on one topic is really just not working for my all-over-the-place brain. I woke up on the right side of the bed with my five year old son snuggling me and being all happy with a great big hug. My son then proceeded to tell me that “there must be some cartoons on by now”. That meant *hint hint* Mama it’s time for you to wake up. I woke up, sort of. Kept hitting […]

It is How it Is, Just Deal With It

I can be what some call a pushover mom or a softy with some things that have to do with parenting my children, or being in charge of any children for that matter. I firmly feel that there is a different between choosing when you can be somewhat “soft” and when you have to be firm with a child. The theme that comes to mine is “pick your battles”, obviously if you have said no and the child continues to ask why or debate the topic with you then you stand firm. With that being said if you chose not […]

What Do you Mean You Don’t Like That?

Every evening I pack up a nice cold lunch for my oldest and middle child, usually they get some form of deli meat & cheese sandwich, plus two sides and a capri sun for drink. Each day I pack their various sides, sometimes it’s raisins and crackers other times it’s applesauce and crackers.  What I pack with my kids drink and sandwich really is a matter of what I have available in the house. That is when I find out just how little I know my kids, some days. For instance, last I knew my daughter and my middle child […]

Making Scrambled Eggs with Four Year Old

Out of all three of my kids, the four year old boy seems to be the one who wants to do everything by himself. Yes, even things he should not be doing by himself. I praise him for his independent nature and try my best to encourage it. That is why he has a love of eggs, cracking eggs that is. K-man loves scrambled eggs, it is the only type of eggs he will eat for breakfast. While my other two kids are all for omelets, fried eggs, and scrambled eggs, K-man will only eat “fluffy scrambled eggs” and usually […]

The Cool {and Quick} Way to Make Pancakes for Multiple Kids

I must admit I take full advantage of looking like a “cool mom” most mornings when I wake up to cook the kids pancakes on a weekend or before school starts. The reason I look like the “cool mom” is because I take what some may say to be the lazier approach to making pancakes for three kids, or if on a weekend when my daughter has a friend over, four kids. I first make sure to purchase some of the Bisquick pancake mix, this time I chose the Bisquick Complete type of pancake mix, where you add just water. […]

Am I A Mean Mama?

It’s highly doubtful that many people who know of me or know me personally would say I am a mean Mama, however, the question does come to mind occasionally for me. The reason being is that I co-parent and my oldest is almost 9 years old & her father and I seem to be polar opposites. With me Ki gets up in the morning, not by me waking her up but by her own alarm clock. Ki gets dressed then comes in and wakes me up if my alarm hasn’t gone off yet. Sometimes I get right up and other […]

Heading Into Week 4 With @Nutrisystem #NSnation

I was starting to get worried because in the first two weeks on Nutrisystem I lost 5lbs yet the weight was coming off slower in the third week, however, I am now down 9lbs total in 3 weeks on the Nutrisystem Program. I am so excited. Of course I still struggle with the excess belly fat and plan to figure out a routine to get that out of the way but my arms and legs are slowly losing some fat and although my belly “seems” big to me, I can notice a difference, can you? I know the dates are […]
