Mean Mom's Unite

Monday, May 20, 2019

Guy's today I was a mean mommy or so thinks my five year old... I mean it all started when I said good morning! Apparently unbeknownst to me she hadn't slept all night! The snores that rang out of her nose like a small trucker, they weren't real... She was adamant that she hadn't slept at all. I mean really this isn't all that different from most mornings when she denies sleep. She's done that now since she was about three, when she told me she doesn't sleep at night time anymore.


This morning though, this morning me greeting her with a cheerful good morning about set her over the edge. Has anyone else been there? I know this can't just be me right? I mean its cute at first but when even the bribe of her beloved jelly toast for breakfast didn't work I knew it was going to be a nap kinda day...



I should probably tell you that she's my mini and such a sweet little love (most of the time)! Then there are some days where I'm like why do you have to be so much like me? #thatattitudethough
So when the unavoidable nap time of the day came, she was really over me for the day, I mean I didn't love her anymore, and I was pretty much her least favorite human...  Let's cut to about two hours later, she was a completely different child!

Sometimes I wish it was that easy for me! If only I could be made to take a two hour nap and all my problems attitude and other, would melt away!

This isn't her norm, usually I'm her very favorite person at all times of the day and even when she denies sleep she's a joy. I know when I look back at these days it will be comical that a simple good morning could send her spiraling at least that's what I'm telling myself...

This is five and I'm going to soak in every minute before she off for school next year and leaving me in the dust!





How your day going with your kids? Let me know if saying good morning sets your mini off!!


That's all for today!

Motherhood Unplugged

Wednesday, May 8, 2019

Hey Momma! .... I see you!!!


I know you've seen the meme...





"My well behaved first born gave me the confidence to be a good mom. My wild child second kid taught me not to judge other moms."

Now we won't even get started on my third #bossbaby....


Anyway I love that meme but it really got me thinking... Why do we judge other mom's in the first place? I mean really, we've all been there right? We've been standing in line and have had to either leave our cart or wait it out and deal with the silent judgment because of a screaming child... If you haven't been there yet, just wait, it's coming.....


I mean stay at home moms tend to judge working moms and working moms will judge stay at home moms. It's not always this way but it happens more then not...
It kinda goes back to, you always want what you don't have right? Listen guys we're all just trying to do whats best for our families at the end of the day right?


I've done both, and now I'm doing work at home mom and I gotta tell you, it's all rough. Motherhood in general is the hardest yet most rewarding job. When I worked I was so sad I was missing so much time with my baby and his firsts and it wasn't fair. Then when I was non stop at home I was overwhelmed! I feel like everyone looks at me like it's such a blessing and I shouldn't complain. Listen it is such a blessing but ladies, it's non stop, its hard!

I miss them as soon as they are asleep or I go somewhere alone but during the day I mostly fantasize about bedtime.. It's the most ridiculous thing, if you're reading this though you already get that because you have those same feelings.... right?


I just got done reading "girl code" and while that book is a lot about entrepreneurship it's also a lot about women supporting women. Honestly it opened my eyes to a lot of things and I defiantly recommend it.

So I started thinking yes women in business should be raising each other up but what about moms? What if we were to say screw you mom guilt? I mean, when we judge others it mostly comes from a place of jealousy right? It maybe makes us feel a little bit better about our own parenting if we point out her faults....?

Guys I'm sick of this, I don't need to judge or gossip about anyone to validate my parenting skills. I have no place to! Just last week I literally was wishing I could time travel and go back to the sixth grade for a day to make this little boy that's been picking on my son cry! Yep I'm owning that! Bullying is a story for a different day though. Some most days I go to target with Scarlett and her outfit is on point and I look like a hobo, sometimes she literally wants to fight to the death for me to put a brush to her hair and she's the hobo... Then there's the rare occasion that were both fly, in which case she inevitably eats something that she finds in the back of the car and uses her shirt for a napkin... Or maybe it's a marker, I detest markers... Insert eye roll here but guys I'm telling you this because you have probably been there at some point and if not, well maybe send me some parenting tips!

My point is we all have our own things we are dealing with, we're all doing our best (most days) for our kids. So let's start a movement, lets be moms supporting moms! We're a few days from mother's day so what better time to start right?

So here's what I'm going to do, a weekly post about motherhood. The good, the bad, the dirty! If you have stories, I'd love to hear them!!

Let me know what you think of this idea! Is that something you'd like to hear about? We're going to build a mom community that's so supportive that everyone wants to join us, K!

That's all I have for today ladies! I hope you have a very Happy Mother's Day!!!!

-XOXO
