Adulting is Hard - Adult Reward Stickers

It's no secret that being a grown up is tough work. Once we graduate high school, the praise of doing the crap we're meant to do (school work, getting up and going to school, getting dressed, brushing our hair, acing a paper) ceases and we're all just expected to do these things because we're "adults". Well there's a new trend called "adulting" and I can't say that disagree with the consensus that adulting is hard.

Let Them Be Little

Kids grow up fast, real fast. One moment they are sitting in the back of the car singing the ABCs, then next moment they are singing ‘hot line bling’. If you think about it, childhood is just small portion of life, not even 10%…I’m not sure who decided that childhood should be so short, but whoever made the decision, they totally got things backwards.

As parents, we want to raise our children to be functioning members of society. We want them to be good people, to know right from…

Laundry Hacks for Lazy Moms | SLACKER MOM’s Guide to Laundry

Before we get to laundry hacks…

You’ve heard the expression “going postal?”* It means suddenly erupting into an unprovoked fit of rage. A long-time postal worker friend once told me that the reason “going postal” was an occupational hazard was that the mail never ends. You’re never completed the task. It just keeps coming.

Kind of like the laundry. Why is it that the mom of the house typically becomes the CEO of laundry? As if growing humans inside of our bodies, birthing them,…

Valentine's Day Honesty

I'm annoyed with Valentines day. It just is too dramatic for my liking. The worst part is that it's dramatic in multiple ways. Whether a person expects a thoughtful gift and high level romance or the HATE VALENTINES DAY, IT'S A HALLMARK HOLIDAY.. blah blah person.. Or that you are single 364 days out the year. Yet if on Valentines day you don't have a date, it's some how the worst thing ever?

If you are only affectionate or thoughtful to your spouse  3 days a year. (Valentine's…

When Moms Need Therapy

When Moms Need Therapy

Dear Diary,

Shortly after having a baby, I made an appointment. No, it wasn't for the pediatrician or the obstetrician. I scheduled an appointment with a therapist. My hormones were raging; my feelings were exploding and my life was changing. I knew in order to take care of my daughter, I had to take care of myself. I couldn't harbor hate against my daughter's dad, who broke up with me…

Opting Out? Working Moms Want the Same Thing: Flexibility

Originally posted on Workflexibility.org. Written by Stefanie Boucher.

Several months ago when I started Opt-Out Revolutionary, a blog about the much-discussed (and often misunderstood) opt-out revolution, I set out to interview stay-at-home-mothers and working moms alike with one key question in mind: How can today’s women build satisfying, joy-filled careers and raise healthy, happy kids without constantly feeling…

Favorite Make-Ahead Meals

For once, our freezer is stocked. I still feel like it's not enough, but I have no room for anymore stuff, so I guess it will have to do! I've been making a few extra meals each week for the last few weeks to stock up on meals for when the baby comes. I've learned that anytime I make a casserole, to just make two of them and freeze the other one. It really doesn't take anymore time and saves me from cooking a meal on another day. It's so handy that I will continue to do it from now on to…

The Secret to Surviving (Enjoying) Housework

Heaps of intermingled clean and dirty laundry in every bedroom volcanically erupted by another continental clothing drift. Unclean dishes flowing like lava out of the sink onto counters. Meal remnants littered like ash across the kitchen floor, family room, foyer, playroom, and “fill-in-the-blank”.…

Making Time For You

One of the biggest challenges I face as a mom is not having enough time to myself and for myself. Even right now as I am trying to write this, I have both kids climbing all over me. Sometimes it can definitely be overwhelming. For me, I NEED time alone. I guess that goes with being introverted though. I find it hard to put myself first, because it seems selfish to me. When other things need to get done around the house or the kids need more time and attention than normal, I find that I put…

Cleaning Calendar

I'm finally finding my way to a good cleaning schedule. It has taken me a lot of frustrating moments and many guilty feelings that the house is never clean. Since I stay at home full-time, I feel like the house should be spotless and feel guilt when it looks like a tornado came through. I am finally getting myself together and organized after 1 1/2 years of being a stay-at-home mom. After much research and making a list of everything in my house that needs to be cleaned on a regular or…

Organizing’s a B*tch… Until It’s Done

Organizing is hard. And not just because it takes physical & mental energy, determination, and stamina. It’s also hard because there are so many layers. You can’t just go into a room and tackle it right then and there. You have to clean, discard, sort, relocate, and improve. As much as I wish I could tackle room after room in one epic sweep, it’s just not possible.

One of the January goals I set as part of my month of being an…
