Oscar Prop Bets

Whether you are having an Oscar party or it's just a party for one snuggled up in your bed with your favorite jammies, it's fun to play along with "Prop Bets." If you don't know, Prop Bets are like fun side bets about the Oscars that don't involve much about who wins. For example, "Will Ellen Degeneres wear a dress at any point in the show?" You pick YES or NO.

Is it Okay to Borrow a Blog?

    Not Your Average Mom!

I do not know this woman, but I feel like I do.

She has a Mom Blog, and it's a good'n.

I have to think she would be delighted to have me pass it along.

I hope she wouldn't mind.

Just in case, pretend you don't know where you got it.

Just remember that what is written there are HER thoughts, not necessarily MINE.

Why do they call them "Hacks?"

Hey Mama! I saw this on Yahoo and thought it was pretty brilliant, so I wanted to pass it along!

Can We Make it Through January?

I have something extremely personal to share. This is not a joke.

I hate January and it hates me. February isn't much fun either. To be honest, I don't really start to feel completely alive until March 9, when we can Spring Forward again and get a little sunlight back!


How about you?

So, 2014. Let's Do This.

Not One for New Year's Resolutions? Yeah. Me either.

Just one more thing at which I could fail miserably. No, I'm not being negative. I just think the whole idea is unrealistic. Why do we have to start something New (or END something Old) on January 1. There are 364 other perfectly good days when we may feel far more motivated. And if you do slip a bit, guess what? You can start again tomorrow.

"Just" a Mom?

Some "Mom" terms drive me nuts ... and some really tick me off. 


Mom jeans. This is a negative term to describe jeans that look awful.  The jeans that are ill-fitting. Jeans that have elastic waistbands. Moms like all kinds of jeans. 


Toddlers Rule The World! Just Ask Them!

20 Rules Toddlers Live By!

 I am convinced that toddlers have the following Code of Conduct hardwired into their DNA.

1. You are the family alarm clock. It is your job to wake up at the ass-crack of dawn every day.
2. ALWAYS crap your pants AFTER leaving the house. Your best bet is to clench those cheeks together until you have left your street, and then EXPLODE!!!

Paint Power!

This might be a little heavy, or even strange, but do you ever feel like you are "channelling" someone?

Lately I have been painting. Now, keep in mind, I have never picked up a brush until a few months ago. But now, I paint whenever I get a free hour or so.
