MOM PROBLEMS #06112017:

THE BIRDS, BEES, ALIENS, AND SHIP After a very challenging parenting week, you realize that the kids really CANNOT hear you, yet hear a whole host of other wonderful things, from other adults, kids, and tv.    “Mom, you know when you was little, and I was an alien, and you grew up, and sh*t […]

MOM PROBLEMS #06082017:

WHEN ADJUSTING TO THE FIRST WEEK OF SUMMER BREAK RESEMBLES 80’S FILMS… Everyone knows classic excuses like “the dog ate my homework,” but how about this one?  “I’m sorry I’m late for my 9:15, but my son is projectile vomiting across the hall in your women’s restroom. I’m also sorry I’m going to be even […]

MOM PROBLEMS #06052017

SEVEN GOING ON THIRTEEN When you ask your newly graduated first grader, what they did on the first morning of summer camp, and you get a VERY DIFFERENT ANSWER from last summer… Mom: Max, what did you do today at summer camp? Did you have any fun, or meet any friends?  Max: I wrote a […]

MOM PROBLEMS #05042017: MR. SNAIL

We crafty moms have an affinity for supplies. Anything and everything can sometimes be found in our stash, and the collection, which is nothing shy of a hoarders episode on reality tv, really can consume where you do your art. Storage can become an issue, and while I am constantly on top of my latest […]

MOM PROBLEMS #05032017: TILTED CACTUS DIY

We’ve all been there. We, the moms of 24/7 motherhood. A long day, turns into a rough week, on top of a long month, accumulating together with the last “you can’t remember how long, but it’s been eons” amount of years.  (Duh. Seven. It’s been seven years, the age of your oldest child. What kind […]

MOM PROBLEMS #04292017: MOTHER NATURE STRIKES BACK

Some things about Mother Nature can be tough to learn as a kid, when you live in the SW desert where it ALMOST NEVER RAINS. Today’s surprise weather lesson also brought a few human tears, a whole lot of kiddo shrieks, and an argument between a seven-year-old boy and his younger sister, that resembled the […]

MISS ATTITUDE STUBBORN-PANTS What it’s like trying to do kindergarten homework with Miss Attitude Stubborn-Pants. She laughed hysterically, drawing her STRAIGHT HAIR… If she gets bonus points for creativity, maybe they’ll make up for the fact that her drawing isn’t an accurate representation to her sentence.  “I have curly hair.” — Miss Mya, age 5 […]

MOM PROBLEMS #05032016: THE GREAT PRETZEL HEIST

The single worst motherhood decision I’ve made this year to date: making my kids homemade soft pretzels from this kit. Omg…if you love to bake and follow nit-picky directions on a clock, this kit is for you!! If you do not like to make complex baking recipes, just light your $4 on fire, if you’ve […]

MOM PROBLEMS #04202016: LEFTOVERS INCOGNITO

MAKING SOMETHING UNIQUE WITH LEFTOVERS… Possibly the only thing I enjoy about “mom level” family cooking: unique meal ideas. Before being a mom, I never cooked like this. Now, I almost find it a challenge to use up every “exotic” leftover. Today’s challenge: yesterday’s leftovers, made from cookout leftovers, into something we will not actually […]
