Things I've Learned This Week

 

** Someone should come up with a Beano for brain farts.

 

** Motherhood is no place for migraines.

 

** Our water bill's gonna be $10,000 this month, thanks to my son's obsession with the hose.

 

** Nothing, and I do mean NOTHING, is louder than the volume of a carpool of short people.

 

** Digging for your keys…

High Fives To My Husband

 

Unlike the back-assward days of the 1950s, I, for one, do not always believe that Father knows best.  However, as much as it might pain me, I've gotta give credit where credit is due.  And sometimes, every once in a blue moon, my husband actually comes up with a semi-brilliant parenting strategy.

 

Like many households, getting our kids ready for bed at night…

Vent, Rant, a Little Bit of Whine

It's almost the end of the summer...and what awesome adventures have we gone on? None. Why? Well I can't get ANYTHING done. Nothing. EVER. Half way into any chore I get sidetracked by kid A fighting kid B or kid C taking kid A's toys. Then I give up and we don't get to go have fun. And this happens every. single. day.

Ugh. I'm in such a rut and today started off worse than normal. Usually I wake up earlier than everyone because I need time to wake up or I'm a monster, and it's the only…

Power Mom Day 12! Soups on thanks to Son!

I called home and my son Merrick asked me what was for dinner! I said, "You know where the eFoods box is? You choose!" It is Day 12 of our new family business -- the Power Mom Food Fund! Our goal is to feed and finance families from the kitchen! So after all . . . sheesh, what else would I say! I tell everyone my kids can and want to make the food . . . and they do . . . take a look for yourself!



"My son makes eFoods meals for dinner!"]… Continue

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

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…
