Time Flies When You're Nucking Futs!!!

It's so hard to believe that this month celebrates THREE awesome years of writing my little Nucking Futs Mama blog.  This right here is my 642nd published post, y'all!  Holy crap, that's a lot of rambling, isn't it??!

And since there's no red carpet roll-out or awards show ceremony to commemorate this monumental occasion (*snark*),…

The Evolution of Sleep Deprivation

Lately, I've been thinking a lot about the dreadful toll motherhood has taken on my sleeping patterns.  Little by little, I'm starting to realize that this sleep deprivation shit is just a never-ending, vicious cycle that nobody ever REALLY tells you about.  Evidently, it never really goes away but just presents itself in different forms along the way, starting from the time…

The Breakfast Buzz Kills



Do you ever wanna just walk away from your kids in public and act like you don't know who the hell they are?  No?  Surely that's not just me.  Call me Mommy Dearest if you will, but when my kids have a brain fart and act like complete Neanderthals who've never heard of manners, I sometimes think it would be easier to point and stare and pretend like I'm disgusted by the horrible excuse…

Trust the Gut

I may not know what the hell I'm doing half the time with this whole parenting gig, but one thing that I have learned from experience is to trust my gut when it comes to my kids.  (After all, they're the ones who are responsible for making it a lot less flat than it used to be).  So if my gut is telling me that my daughter is, in fact, sick, I'm sure as shit gonna listen to…

The New Year's Guinea Pig Attack
