Best Method for Cleaning Your Breast Pump While On the Go or at Work

In June of 2011, I began using a breast pump on a regular basis to start building a stash of breast milk for my baby so that he would have plenty of milk once I returned back to work. When I returned to work, I knew exactly where I would have to use my breast pump but I never did put much thought into how I planned on cleaning my breast pump parts after I finished a pumping session. Luckily at my job, we had a break room that had a clean sink. Thankfully, I didn’t have to worry about…

Use the Bathroom at Your Own Risk - Elf on the Shelf Post :)

Rascal had a good time playing Wii games after the kids went to school yesterday.  He got rid of his excess energy and crashed just about the time my oldest son got home from school.  Then last night as I was getting ready for bed, Rascal told me good night as he was leaving to head back to the North Pole.

This morning I heard him coming in the back door shortly after I got up.  It was really windy outside this morning and I wanted to make sure that Rascal made it inside safely.  The…

Rascal Likes to Play Video Games Too

Rascal came down from the chandelier after the kids went to bed.  He said that he was ready to go for his nightly visit with Santa Claus.  I don’t know why he was in such a hurry to run off, but it must have been very important to Rascal.

Hopefully, he wasn’t off to the North Pole in search of more sweets, this seems to be his favorite thing to eat.  He must have been out pretty late again last night, because he was sneaking back in just as I was coming out of our bedroom to go wake…

Rascal Learns Basic Life Skills From Two Wise Owls

The previous night Rascal had time to make a few bracelets and left a huge mess of beads behind. I decided to move him to the mantel so that the my baby or the puppy wouldn’t get ahold of him.  Again, I placed him up on the mantel so that he can watch the kids.  We have less than a week left with Rascal and I am already getting sad.  He has been a great addition to our family and created a new tradition for my children.

Rascal was excited to go tell Santa Claus that he was able to…

Rascal Gets Crafty and Makes Bracelets

Rascal had to be rescued from the toy box so that my toddler wouldn’t misplace him or play with him.  I placed him on the fireplace mantel so that he could still keep an eye on the kids.  By that evening, he was ready to head to the North Pole to go visit Santa Claus, the other elves, and reindeer.  He left shortly after the kids were tucked into bed and I didn’t hear him sneak back into the house this morning.  In fact, I wasn’t sure if he made it home in time to cause any mischief.…

Rascal the Dog Groomer

Last night when we went to bed, Rascal told me that he was going to surprise us but he wanted to visit with Santa, the elves, and reindeer.  During the wee hours of the morning, Rascal decided that he wanted to be like the “Elves and the Shoemaker” and do something so that we wouldn’t have to do it.  The next morning when we woke up, I was wondering why the dog wasn’t asleep in her bed.  This is so unlike Katie and I immediately knew something wasn’t…

Rascal is Caught Eating Cookies and Drinking Syrup in the Pantry

After sipping on coffee and eating cinnamon rolls yesterday, I figured that Rascal had enough sugar in his body to last for a few days.  Last night he was bouncing off the walls and running around the house after the kids went to bed.  I figured that I would find him passed out somewhere when we woke up this morning.  But no!  Rascal had other plans.

Rascal Found my Change Jar and Left the Kids a Message This Morning

Rascal took off his diaper late last night and left it laying on the couch.  Thankfully, it wasn’t a stinky diaper.  I also had to help him clean the butt paste (diaper rash cream) off of his nose.  After, I got him cleaned up, he was ready to head off for his nightly visit with Santa Claus.  As usual, I didn’t hear him sneak back into our house.  By now, you have probably figured out that I am a deep sleeper.

Tooth Fairy Fail

If I could take myself into a dark alley and kick my own ass, I totally would cause I seriously dropped the parenting ball the other night (once again).  Yes, I completely failed my duty as the Tooth Fairy, y'all.  Now I know that plenty of people have said that they, too, have forgotten a tooth here and there, but I swore that I would never…

Rascal Got Locked in Doggy Jail

Rascal Found the Toilet Paper and Made a Huge Mess

Rascal was still perched on the motion sensor when I went to bed last night and he seemed happy sitting up high watching the kids.  I didn’t hear him sneak out last night to head to the North Pole. The baby woke up around 1:30 early this morning and Rascal was no where to be found.  When I finally ready to go back to bed, Rascal was sneaking back into the house.  I told Rascal good night and that I would see him in the morning.

I Caught Rascal Climbing the Walls and Perching Himself on A Motion Sensor

Last night as I was getting ready to go to bed, I opened the refrigerator door so that I could get a drink and Rascal comes bouncing out.  It was a site to see him bouncing around the house, similar to one of those high bouncy ball that bounces out of control.  He calmed down long enough to sneak out of the house so that he could visit with Santa Claus while the kids were sleeping.
