not that mom..

After just a year in, some things I’m still getting the hang of.. but more or less we finally have a routine around here.


I’m not that mom that reads to her kid every night.. You know what? Soon..maybe we’ll pick up a book or two before bed but right now K’s interest when I read to her lasts about .5 seconds of reading the first page before she hands me a different book or tries to climb off the bed.. soo.. we relax with the lights off for a few minutes and watch some cartoon.. Literally about 3-5mins it takes before I notice her eyes are closed.

I’m not that mom that makes sure everything she eats is healthy for her.. Don’t get me wrong she eats pretty clean since that’s how we eat.. but some nights.. since she eats before us I do make her some frozen Mickey Mouse chicken nuggets that are pretty healthyish (according to the bag)..We don’t buy organic foods ..except her milk I buy organic..(Something another mom told me that freaked me out about teens hitting puberty earlier these days because of the hormones in our milk?..I don’t know.. I didn’t look into it, just what she told me she read). But shoot if girlfriend wants some french fries or pizza she can try the delish fried foods too! *my weakness..Or croissants*

I’m not that mom that thinks t.v. is bad for kids..I know there are studies done that say this and it’s so not recommended but the shows these days on Disney Jr. are teaching even me a thing or two! Also Kenz doesn’t really watch tv all that much..If you come over you’ll probably find it on a cartoon but that’s mostly because I like just to have it on as noise.. If Doc McStuffins or the Hot Dog Dance from Mickey’s Clubhouse comes on, you bet she stops what she’s doing looks at the tv and starts shaking her butt but other than that she’s too busy exploring the house and all her new toys!


Jeesh all these things are how we’re supposed to raise our babes but you know what you gotta do what just works! I’m learning.. we all have our own norm.. and one thing I’ve learned so far.. NEVER get used to something cuz it’s gonna get shaken up at some point!

Dumb Blonde

Yep I definitely get help to be this blonde, but naturally.. I am still a blondie..

The other day I wound up sending myself to the E.R.  (I think for the first

See.. multi-tasking.. I’m still trying to master this..

I was doing the dishes while Kenz was eating breakfast in the kitchen.. Well she was done .. clearly letting me know by trying to climb out so I quickly stopped unloading to grab her before she fell out.. set her down.. go to pick up the blueberries that were all thrown on the floor.. stand up and..BAM!

Right underneath the corner of the kitchen cabinet door..I collapsed for a good 10 seconds curled on the floor holding my head as Nilla licked my face..

I remember thinking.. shit I have the hot glue gun plugged in and now K is out walking around.. I gotta get up.

As I lift my head I felt the blood running down my face so immed opened the back door and  yelled out for Bob. thank goodness he was home working on our roof..

I can’t imagine if no one was home and what if I knocked myself out?! I also had eggs boiling on the stove! Still the thought scares me.. I need to be more careful!

Long story short since Bob was so busy working (and he has all the guys taking orders from him).. I called my sister to come and take me and baby to the hospital.. The gash was only 1/2” deep or wide (not sure).. so I needed a couple of staples..

Wanna hear another dumb blonde moment? I’m sure the doc was going to tell me next what the follow up was but I first asked.. So will these dissolve? You know like some stitches?

The doc then stopped and looked at me and was all.. “um no Staples are metal.. they do not dissolve. You’ll need to come back in 10days to get them removed”..

After getting the staples I then went in for a CT Scan.. anyone else wanna spell it CAT SCAN? I texted that first before correcting myself.. Ok yep.. Blonde..


Nowadays.. I like to just blame it on Mommy Brain.. that’s a thing right?! I like using that excuse more.. We’ll go with that.

What’s in a name?

What do you think? It started as an inside joke between my sister in law and I, but I thought it’s just so fitting now.. I’m rarely posting just as a Mrs.. and always posting about my life as Mommy..
I also got just a little bit cooler and purchased my own domain..You know to seem all legit and stuff. P.s. it was like $2..just sayin.. You know me and my coupons.. there’s a coupon code if you need it.. Wonder Forest helped make this so easy!..

Also my new look? Any thoughts on what I should add/change? I did it all myself *so proud and impressed*..
Guys...Well Girl’s (i‘m sure).. I’m back!! Life got a little busy once she started eating solids lol.. she did more than just sleep so I lost all my blogging time.. Now.. I’m kinda getting this #mommylife thing down.. Excited to be back in the game!
