I live in a mad house run by a tiny army that I made myself....

August 12, 2018

OK so something that I dread and despise doing is going grocery shopping....... I use to not mind it when I was younger and single, but now that I have a career, kids, a family, house.... you know everything that keeps us moms super busy, I just feel like the time I spend grocery shopping could be used somewhere else. But I guess we do need to feed our family, so it's not an option to go grocery shopping. 

And then don't get me...

Ok mama's cheers to the 2018-2019 school year! Let's kick off the school year with some fun first day of school ideas! Here are some ideas for the your kids whether it's their first day back to school or first day of school!

Kindergarten

Lets face it, having your child go into kindergarten is a fun semisweet event.... especially if it's your youngest and last one (sniffle sniffle.... like it is for me this year.) My "baby" goes...

A funny thing happens when you have four kids in five years. People start assuming you are good at parenting or know what you're doing. I assure you, this could not be farther from the truth. There are no competency evaluations before each child. They just show up and you try and find your way, finding lower standards and more love than you ever thought possible.

One thing I hear a lot is, "You made it out the door with 4 kids?...

Tips for the OneHander Years

You may know that I like to call kids who can count their age on one hand "onehanders". I loved referring to my kids collectively as "my onehanders" because I had four kids 5 & under. But a few months ago, my oldest went and turned 6 on me and I officially have a two-hander now. While I'm sad about the loss of my favorite joke, I figure since I've successfully made it through with one kid I'm an exp...

There are some things I do well as a mom. Not perfectly, but well. I talk to my kids about Jesus and make God part of our everyday life. Easter morning, when I stumbled over some words while saying the breakfast blessing, my 4 year old said, "Mama, you made a mistake, but that's ok. Jesus died on the cross so even when we make mistakes we can still go to heaven". In that moment, I figured I'd done my job as a mom. I listen to...

Making mom friends is hard, right? And awkward. Super awkward. But before I start on that, let me just acknowledge this: it's not as hard as making friends as a single adult in a new town. That's the absolute worst. But now I'm a mom and this is a mom blog so we're talking about mom friends today.

We really, really need mom friends. And by mom friends I don't mean "friends who are moms", I mean "people who are your friends when...

Four Parenting Cliches That Need to Go….and One That Needs to Catch On

I have four kids. The oldest one is five. Which is why I've adopted a new phrase - the "onehanders". A onehander is anyone whose age can be counted on one hand, so I call my kids "my onehanders". I use it all the time - "I'm sorry I'm late, but I have four onehanders and they all ran in different directions"; "We had a great time at the beach, but it was a l...
