to-do list

I love a good to-do list. If I didn’t write a to-do list every week, I would literally never get anything done, because I would completely forget that I had to do it in the first place. To be fair, I still don’t get much done, but at least I remember that I forgot to do it. But one thing …

Teachers

Dear Teachers, First, let me say how much I love you. Teachers are amazing people. I know your job is difficult, teaching and looking after so many small children each and every day. I also know that to make this difficult job a little bit easier, it’s in your best interest to encourage good behavior from your students, and that …

baby toys

The first few weeks of school is one of my favorite times of year for obvious reasons. But the part I probably love the most is the fact that I can now safely rid my house of all the toys, and pieces of garbage my kids use as toys, that seem to have gotten together and had little garbage toy …

ten years

Today, my oldest child turns ten years old. While this milestone is a big deal for kids, I feel like it’s an even bigger milestone for their mothers. Of course, it marks your child’s tenth year on this planet, but when it’s your first child, it also marks the tenth anniversary of you becoming a Mom. Perhaps I’ll get myself …

summer toys

Summer is FINALLY here. Have your kids said that they’re “bored” yet? Haha, I’m just kidding! Of course they’ve said it! I’m not typically fond of buying new stuff just to entertain my kids during these hot months, but here are a few summer toys that I’ve found to be quite helpful in beating the heat, and the boredom. 1. Rocket …

birthday parties

When I was a kid, birthday parties were nothing but a group of your friends coming over to your house to play, eat some food, sing “Happy Birthday,” and have some cake. Then, somewhere over the following two decades, something happened. Birthday parties became big events, with themes, where you have to invite every person you’ve ever met, and every …

grocery shopping

I. Hate. Grocery shopping. I’ve written about how much I loathe it before, and my feelings have not changed in the slightest. It’s crowded, there are annoying displays in all the aisles, and they’re always changing the layout to try and trick us into buying stuff we usually don’t. I typically go grocery shopping on Fridays, as that’s when the new …

mom ninja

If you’ve ever watched the show American Ninja Warrior, you know the amazing feats those athletes conquer week after week. It’s SO inspiring, and while there are Moms out there who actually go out and train to become Ninja Warriors, I am not that Mom. So for Moms like me, I’ve come up with a more doable obstacle course comprised of …

dogs

When I was a new mother, I had several people make comments to me comparing their new puppy to my newborn human, person. This never made me angry, as it does some people, but it certainly made me a little “eye-rolly.” While I have never owned any dogs, at the time I had been around them enough to know that …
