For 2018, Make Finding the Right Activities for Your Kids Your New Year’s Resolution

The "Do Not At A Fool In This Store" Conversation

I have always resisted the urge to slap the hell out of and some sense into those mothers who are sweetly trying to coax their child with candy and the likes when their Brat of a Child is on the floor in the middle of a store throwing a tantrum.  "SERIOUSLY LADY?" is what my brain is screaming. "Get some balls and act like the parent," I mumble under my breath as I walk by.

     As I attempt to enjoy some much needed retail therapy, my shopping is interrupted by a child…

Tried on size 2 pants today, they didn't fit but I bought them anyway because dam*it I am a size 2!

By the end of the day today my face looked like it was melting off so I decided that it was time to head to the mall to get a new type of foundation. So I head to the mall with the hubby and the little man in tow. Of course Nick abandoned me instantly to go to GNC where he could tell the little guy behind the counter yet again that their nutrition bars are WAY too expensive. Anyway... so me and Collin head to the Estee Lauder counter in Dillards. She matches my foundation shade as a…

"Hunt"ing for Camp Runamuk fun!

Last Friday was the last day of Camp Runamuk (the affectionate name we call life at my house when the kids are off school and fun is involved) and I decided to host the First Annual Dugdale Trifecta Easter Egg Hunt.



Here’s what you get when you have 4 mommies + 14 kids + 225 eggs + 12 tons of sugar =



1)      Sometimes even the snails want some chocolate!  The eggs had been out for literally 10 minutes, and we had an attempted robber!
2)      If…

"How many of these kids are actually yours?!"

. . . was the question from the Dish Network installer at my house today as we were entertaining 14 yes, I said FOURTEEN, children.

Today we had Camp Runamuk, Day 2 – Gettin’ Dirty.  We made “mud” cupcakes, bird houses, paper butterflies and mommy made a sad attempt at a cardboard boomerang . . .

. . . and here’s what we learned:

1)      Bribing the children with Fun Dip for breakfast will ensure that they get their rooms clean in no…

"Are you watching these children?!"

. . . was the question from the very irritated and judgmental man who almost ran my children over in the Target parking lot!  “YEEEEEEEESSSS!” was my defensive and embarrassed response. 

It’s Spring Break and my “oh sh*t, I’m a stay at home mommy” hives have kicked in.  I have to entertain the children all day and maintain some semblance of my sanity.  It’s gonna be a long week.  But, on the bright side, Camp Runamuk is in full swing.

Here’s what I learned about…

Redefining March Madness (yes, I know it's April, but that's how maddening my March was)

So it’s March Madness, and even the Nana has a “bracket” that she’s betting on.  Well here’s what I’m betting on . . . absolutely losing my mind before March is over!! 
A couple months ago, following a particularly in depth round of spring cleaning, Husband from Heaven and I were “casually” looking at new homes.  Well, one thing led to another and 60 days later I am now sitting at the kitchen table in our new home.  This is also the reason that I have not written in so long. …

Where's Mommy's Leprechaun

You know, the one that magically cleans up all the messes in the house and makes the room put back in order like Mary Poppins?!  Oh, that’s right, mommy lives with three leprechauns who on a daily basis turn things upside down, pee in the toilet without flushing and generally leave huge messes in their wake!
Yesterday was St. Patty’s day and we did have a celebration, albeit not as extensive as mommy usually does.  We’re in the midst of a major move and THAT little adventure…

The Fort Knox Candy Breach

This little Weilk family chronicle takes place about a year ago. To set the scene properly you should probably know that Max and Jake share a room when they're not destroying it with Legos and action figures. Don't get me wrong, we are a very clean family and I make sure the rug-rats properly organize it before they go to bed every night.
Anyway, this particular day I just so happened…

Less Messy Way to Eat a Cupcake

Here is an easier, less messy way to eat a cupcake!  Next time cupcakes are served at a party try this trick:

  1. Simply take the bottom of the cupcake off (a simple twist and pull will make it easy).
  2. Next, put the bottom piece of cake on top of the icing.  A cupcake sandwich!
  3. Now little ones can…

WHAT DO YOU MEAN MY KID IS SAYING HE'S HUNGOVER!?!



This story takes place a couple of years ago when Jake was in 3rd grade and ranks a magnitude 10 on the Richtor scale of embarrassment. This was when I was working again full time and less hopeless (I joke). Anyway, Craig and I usually spent our weekends…

The Dreaded Man Cold

A nasty sickness has been worming it's way through our family, taking us out one by one like some kind of stealthy, paid-for-hire assassin.

I was first. Then my oldest daughter got and it and this weekend my husband got it. It is a nasty cold but not just any cold, a MAN COLD!

A man cold is similar (on paper) to your run of the mill woman cold, except that in real life it's much more dramatic and whiny.…

A Special Place In Heaven For Moms With Kids Learning A Musical Instrument

In order to keep putting one foot in front of the other with any degree of sanity, I have to believe that there is a special place in heaven for mothers with children in the process of learning how to play the recorder.

The round-the-clock practice sessions (I heard her playing this morning in her room- AT FIVE IN THE MORNING!)

The monotonous song choices! If I have to listen to the first 5 bars of the Harry Potter Theme Song one more time, I might have to take a nice afternoon…

Teaching Kids About Differences Using Eggs

I thought today was a fitting day to tell the story about one of my favorite school events. When Mackenzie was in the 2nd grade, her school held an event to celebrate Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.’s birthday. They used  this event to show the kids that no matter how different we may be on the outside, on the inside we’re all the same.

That in itself is very nice, but…

Teens, Tweens and Finances

We forewarned our girls that this Christmas was not going to be a big one.  The Rooster had changed jobs halfway thru the year and my business was slower than last year. Even if that hadn’t been the case, when we saw the 13 YOs “list” it made us do a double take and realized that these kids needed a severe reality check. I’ve made the comment many times that there is NOT an M.D. behind my name. Sorry for the harsh truth kids, but we are not rolling in the dough.

We “gently” advised…
