Maria's Random Rants - What The !@#$%^& Is Going On Here?

I’m a warrior, a road warrior. Well, among other things. Really. Just hear me out.



Being a family of six limits our options when it comes to travel. Heck, being a family of six limits us financially in several respects, because as you can guess six times any dollar amount usually equals much more than most people can afford.

 

Hence, over the last few years this family has become a band of road warriors, trekking it across…

Interview: Ella Johnson, Founder of Memorable Children Books & Gifts

I first met Ella through the mom bloggers club.  Her willingness to help provide free books to young readers touched me hugely.  I was so impressed with her good samaritan ways I wanted to find out as much as possible about her.  My intent is to help Ella  get some exposure so parents can find out about  what services she makes available.  I proudly present to you today, Ella Johnson.

Can you tell the readers about yourself?

I was born in England. I…

Sometimes Money CAN Buy You Happiness

 

When your kids are eerily quiet for any extended period of time, nine times out of ten it's because they're trying to burn your house down.  But every once in a blue moon, the stars all align, and the pip squeaks somehow actually manage to..... *gasp*..... play quite nicely together.  Sure, you might have to pay them for that momentary bit of peace and quiet, but we…

The Water Park Souvenir

 

If you've ever wondered where all the germs go to party, I'm pretty sure I figured out their favorite stomping ground.  Just visit any given water park, and you'll surely find a whole gaggle of germ dudes and germ dudettes gettin' their freak on.  How do I know this?  Cause my family just spent this past weekend at one, and I've got the mental scars (and the super sexy fever…

A Letter to the Liquor Store

 

Dear Liquor Store,



Perhaps you may have heard some rumblings about the impending summer vacation that's about to pounce on the town here any day now. Yes, kids will soon be out terrorizing the streets and pimping lemonade hardcore on every effing corner. They will be changing their clothes 357 times a day, thereby creating even more…

A (Very) Short Story By My Son

(This story must be prefaced with the fact that it was nothing short of a miracle to get my son to write anything in school at all.  His poor teacher had to practically hypnotize him to get any kind of writing topics to emerge from his little brain.  So yeah, this story's about a giant turd, but hey, at least the kid wrote a story, right??!!)

 

 

Once upon a…

How to Keep Your Kids From Murdering Each Other This Summer

So if you're anything like me, you're trying your damnedest to find something for your kids to do so that they don't kill each other over summer vacation.  And that "something" would preferably be an activity that keeps 'em occupied for a long stretch of time, perhaps even long enough for Mama to have a well-deserved glass of wine and maybe even *gasp* take a pee in…

Things I've Learned This Week

 

** Cruise control scares the shit out of me.

 

** When you travel with kids, it's a trip.  When you travel without them, it's a vacation.

 

** 99.9% of the water at water parks is a combination of urine and ick.  Probably.

 

** Trying to get your kids to sleep at a water park is like trying to get a nun to pole…

On June 30th our lives changed forever. That is the day that my role in life quickly switched gears. Ladies, my husband and I are expecting our first child and we are beyond thrilled. If you have followed me over the last few months you know that this has been my dream for a long time.

Three Things That Made My Day Less than Stellar

I'm a list girl.  Always have been.  Always will be.

I like a chore list.  I like the focus it gives me during the day and I love, love, love being able to cross things off my list as the day goes on.

I live by a grocery list.  I don't understand how people can go to the grocery store without one.  Unless you have a list in your head of the 3 to 5 things you need, but then again, that's a list.  A mental list?  Yes.  But a list, nonetheless.  Walking through the aisles…

Lessons in Cross-Country Travel with a Toddler

Dear readers, I'm back! I've just returned from a fantastic vacation to California to visit my family.  It was quite the adventure getting there because it was D2's first plane ride. To say I was nervous about travelling across the country on my own with a toddler is an understatement. At almost 20 months, D2 is very active and loathes sitting in his car seat for more than a…
