If you give a mom a pancake, she will have to clean up your mess that you made while making the pancake.
When she is cleaning up the mess, she will notice that she needs to mop the floor.
Before she can mop the floor, she will have to wash the dishes.
When she goes to wash the dishes, she will notice....continue

As a parent, we have goals that we achieve to meet on a weekly basis. Some weeks are spent trying to get a certain amount of things accomplished. There are weeks that are spent with the goal of a clean house. Others are spent trying to attain the goal of taking a shower without a person under 4 feet knocking on the shower door. My goal for this week was to just get through it and come out on the other side with my sanity in tact. Let's be honest, a lot of weeks are spent just...…Continue

Lately I have been looking around and trying to see if I see Ashton Kutcher. Then I realized that he is old-school, so now I have been looking for Justin Bieber. You see, lately I feel as if I am an a never-ending episode of Punk'd. Seriously, I'm just waiting for someone to jump out and tell me that it is all a big joke, that none of this was real. Sadly, no one does, so I trudge along usually feeling like I have been run over by a bus that I am sure my kids were driving...…Continue

I know that it is hard to believe that one day you will be a teenager, but you will. That day scares me more than anything because it means that you are that much closer to leaving. But for now, while you are still little (well, sort of little), I think I need to write down some things that you need to know about being a teenager. I need to do this now before you turn into one and I lose my temper and my mind and forget the important points I wanted to make...…

I have had the pleasure of the doctor telling me that I need to gain weight (this one time in middle school when I could not gain weight no matter what I ate..sigh), lose weight (I gained a little too much weight during my first pregnancy), and that I am the perfect weight (obviously told to me by a male doctor because a female would have known better), but what about a "happy weight"? You know, that weight where you are not ashamed to go in public or wear a swim suit at the pool (assuming…Continue
Before I was a parent, it was easy to judge people who were parents. I found myself constantly judging them and being horrified at what they were letting their children do or what they were doing for their children. I was very judgmental. Thank goodness I never told these people what I thought (I can only imagine the reaction that I would have received), I just kept it to myself and made a mental note of what I would and would not do when I had kids. Here is the list of sins I vowed I…Continue

My perfectionism can be annoying. It can cause me not to sleep if the kitchen is not clean. It is not that way with everything. I like to think of myself as having "selective perfectionism." I care if the dishes are clean, but not if the clothes are clean. I care that everything is "picked up," but not that the floors are immaculate. And then there is the car...well, minivan.
There are days when I wonder if my van will ever be clean again. Currently...…

School programs. If you have school-aged children, you have been to at least one of these. If your child has been in school for several years, you have been to a countless number of these. Still, parents seem to not understand the rules of a school program. Apparently all politeness goes out in the window with the parents' goal of seeing their child. Because they are the only child in the program. At least that is the impression that some parents give. There are rules, unspoken ones…Continue

You've lived there. You know, next to "The Joneses." The place where you are always trying to keep up with them and in some cases compete and surpass them. I've lived there. No, really, right next to them, our neighbors were actually Mr. and Mrs. Jones. And we kept up with them. Then we moved...continue
