Booze, chicks at the bar, lewd behavior, all on a Saturday evening and...
at the local Applebee's.
Ok, so, maybe there wasn't booze, chicks at the bar, or lewd behavior. This was the behavior my 9 year old daughter, Flower, "saw", what she cooked up in her head and swore off ever eating at an Applebee's again.
Let me explain.
Saturday is our day to eat out for dinner. The Hubs recommended Applebee's because he wanted to use a gift…Continue

My crockpot has become a dear friend over the past 6 years... Pretty much when I started having kids. Its so easy to throw all your ingredients in, cover, and the let magic happen. Whether you work outside the home or from inside the home, there's nothing better than to smell the wonderful aroma of your dinner cooking and to know that all you have to do is grab a plate and fork. Sigh. There are a plethora…Continue

I walked into a store today to pick up a picture frame and other nicknacks. After gathering my items and getting in line, an older lady looked down at my children (who were bouncing around like a couple of sugar-high human jumping jacks) and said, “I have two just like that. Well, my son has two just like that. I really think they should just have school all year round. Being out for the summer…Continue

I was on my way to pick up my husbands grandma and it hit. A full on panic attack. The panic was brought on by the realization that I almost lost my mother. My stomach churning, my heart racing, my throat feeling as if I swallowed a rock, and in my head visions of unspeakable…Continue

I've been venturing down to the beach just about daily helping to take care of my mom and I'm required to tote along my kids because well my moms the babysitter and she's out-of-order right now.
She has enjoyed seeing the girls but also has expressed how she may not fully regain her strength to watch my youngest.
Olivia is wide ass open full speed all day unless her eyes are…Continue

Hey girl what up!!! Do you remember yesterday when you stepped out of your car and walked onto a broom brush and the pole came and popped you in the ear? see I feel you practiced very good self control when you had the urge to kill your 8 year old from her belly laughing so hard.
Although you restrained yourself from that you didn't do so hot last night with your night…Continue

One day after school, I took the munchkins out for a treat. It was a sunny day and, as you may know, sunlight can do wonders for a person's mood! We stopped for a snack of cheese fries and ice cream- not the healthiest snack, but it's nice to splurge occasionally ;) After we'd filled our bellies and satisfied our cravings, we walked over to a Goodwill store nearby. The plan was to find me a good book…Continue

Ever have the feeling of "Holy moly everything is too much" the sad thing is my plate isn't even full, I just don't handle things all that well. I can have one thing to do andI feel as if it's the end of the world. #sissy.
Having two kids isn't even the issue its me and it's just so happens my stress retainer is teeny tiny. So anything small large medium, I'm…Continue

Last night, the kids and I had the opportunity to pack some lunches for the West Suburban PADS (Public Action to Deliver Shelter) organization. This non-profit agency gives emergency food and shelter to individuals and families in the West Suburban Cook County area. They operate a shelter every Tuesday night and provide lunches for the next day. There are many PADS programs available all over with some even supplying permanent housing and supportive services for their…Continue

It's a weekday and I don't feel like cleaning or cooking... although both of those things need to be done at some point! No, I feel the need to do something fun. Something that I don't really have to set up or tear down. Something that will make me laugh and possibly get in a little exercise at the same time. It's time for a dance party!
I have had multiple occasions when my children look at me as if to say,…Continue

It had been a while since the last time Illy and I had gone on a date. Sure, we'd done things together as a family, but it wasn't concentrated time with just us. We checked out the calendar, selected a date, and put our names in the box. This was our date and Nothing was going to change that... hopefully. Well, the day finally arrived and, although I was already tired from a full day out with all three…Continue
I am not a camper. Let me say it again in case I wasn’t clear: I am not a camper. Give me a book and the beach over camping any day of the week. Unfortunately, this year I was outvoted on our vacation destination. This meant a week of bugs, heat, and no internet for yours truly.
The uninterrupted time with family is priceless and frankly there was still coffee,…Continue

Online games are convenient because they can be played wherever you have internet connection and a phone, iPad, tablet, laptop, or desktop. I find them to be a great option to cartoons (although wonderful) and…Continue

I adore my children but having all 4 of them home all summer can get a little crazy! Plus my husband working in real estate has a pretty hectic and inconsistent schedule. So it's a lot of mommy versus the 4 little monkeys. One things that really makes me want to climb the walls is the amount of tattling. Yes, I know for children (siblings at that) under 7 years old this is very common but it doesn't make it any less…Continue
