Kid’s Valentine Canvas Art

Kid’s keepsakes are great but the problem is what to do with them? Sadly you can’t hang up every drawing they make. But if you’ve read my blog before then you know my canvas art obsession. Last year was Audrey’s first Valentine’s day and her […]

Back of the Drawer Panties

Back of the Drawer Panties

If you dig through the average woman’s panty drawer, you’ll usually find the same things. The sexy panties, comfy panties, reliable panties, granny panties and that pair you just can’t throw away. A panty drawer ages just as we do. It has it’s own delicate […]

Not so sexy thoughts when having… & a GIVEAWAY

Not so sexy thoughts when having… & a GIVEAWAY

Oh right there. Yes, that’s the spot.  Harder, really get in there with that elbow grease. Oh yes, I like that. Wow, that’s amazing. Those are the cleanest dishes!

Remember when you’re relationship was new and exciting? You shaved your legs for sex, kept on your sexy makeup, had on matching bra and panties even. You were going to have the most exciting time. Completely in the throws of passion. You didn’t fantasize about the wet laundry in the dryer that is getting a mildew smell. No, you thought about his big man hands touching you and your next move.

Jump ahead to a few years of marriage and a couple of kids. Now you fantasize about hiring a maid to scrub the base boards and put away that laundry you’ve been “fluffing” for 3 days.

Did we lock our door? Hi honey, go watch cartoons ok, mama will be out in a few minutes.

Now, here’s some advice to help change the path of your dirty thoughts. Do it on the dirty laundry or on the washing machine. Throw down a blanket and have a “picnic” in the living room. Be careful if you have a fire going. No one wants a singed hiney. Sneak in the shower. Gotta get clean don’t you? Have a private yard? Why not enjoy a full moon, or two.

Sometimes you just need a glass of wine to let your inhibitions go. So in honor of all the mama’s and papa’s needing some alone time, I want to set up a giveaway. One lucky reader will win a set of “His Wine” “Her Wine” glasses.

Vagina Monologs, it’s not that glamorous!

This is a fair warning, it will be verbally graphic and can be gross. So if you have a weak stomach, stop here. If you’re still reading this, go to the bathroom before you continue. I will not be responsible for you wetting your pants. […]

Motherhood is #MadeWithLove

Motherhood is #MadeWithLove

Remember the scene in Peter Pan where Wendy is singing about what a mother is to the lost boys? That has always lingered in my mind about being a mom.

The helping hand that guides you along. Whether you’re right, whether you’re wrong.

My mom, known as Meemaw to my kid, is someone who showed me what it means to be a mom. When she tells me she thinks I am a great mom, I shrug and say, I know, thanks. But on the inside, I am beaming with pride. Being an only child, she made sure that she and my dad always were around to have fun. My favorite memories are camping with them, playing sports in our backyard, watching my dog try to save (drown) my dad when he was swimming and my mom and I laughing so hard we’d nearly wet ourselves. Even though I am grown and have my own family, my mom still acts like a mom to me. When we’re with her, I can ask for a back scratch and she will gladly do it. Love those acrylic nails.

Meemaw, loves being a grandma now. She spoils my kid. She created a nursery and has so many fun toys in there. Most of my daughter’s wardrobe has been created by Meemaw. She dressed me in adorable little outfits and now has created another frilly girl. But when it comes down to it, she supports my decisions with Audrey whether she agrees or not. That’s #MadeWithLove truly.

I love being a mother. Yes, it’s hard and there are days when my kid is driving me so crazy, like today. Nap time is non-existent and meal time is a fight. But when she hugs me and gives me kisses, I am reminded that I must be doing something right.

As she nears her 2nd birthday, the pressure from others to have another kid is growing. Even my hormones and maternal time clock are yelling at me. But I am simply not ready. I am enjoying the adventure I am having now. It’s far from perfect from what people say it should be but it is perfect to me. I made this child. She is beautiful and perfect. The temper tantrums are temporary and the sleepless nights are worth it. I may get angry and loud but I am still a loving mom. I will always do what I find best for my daughter.

Being able to stay home with her has been a constant learning process for both of us. I love that I get to be the one there for every moment. Then there is the downfall. Yea, tell me I’m selfish for wanting me time. But I don’t get to be alone. When I am in a bad mood because of her, I still have to be with her. The husband works very hard though for me to be here. I appreciate and love him. But until you walk a mile in my shoes, you will never understand. I’m doing my best to be my best.

I’m not perfect but I am perfect in my daughter’s eyes. Well that’s only because she’s still so little ;).

Sex Talk with the Doc for the Mama’s and the Papa’s

Sex Talk with the Doc for the Mama’s and the Papa’s

I have been getting to know Samantha, on a personal level the past few months. Dr. Samantha Rodman, is a clinical psychologist and dating coach originally from Brooklyn, NY and now practicing in Takoma Park, MD. She moved down there for grad school at UMD College Park and has not left. She has a husband and three young children and one betta fish.

I read her blog Dr. Psych Mom and follow her on Facebook and kept thinking, this woman is a genius. Not only does she know the struggles of motherhood but she gives you a way to handle it all with out going bat shit crazy. Plus her kids are adorable.

We all know that after having kids, sex can become a thing of the past. It’s hard to find time for it unless you’re doing it for pure conception purposes. While you may not agree right away with this statement, think about it for a while. Sex has become a necessity and a great connection for you and your spouse. It’s not just a hanky panky newly-weds thing. It’s a true need. Some need it more often then others. Then when we hear about how much we should be having or how often, it should feel this way or be that way. The guilt and resentment build up. It’s not a fun or enjoyable thing anymore because of that. You start seeing it as a chore.
Samantha wrote a great blog post about What Men Think About Sex Versus Reality. In it, she makes some very powerful points and debunks some myths. A few of them hit some nerves because yes, I am the first to admit I’ve been down some of these roads.  She has another great post titled What Women Think About Sex Versus Reality. Again, another few things that touched a nerve or two. No matter how great you think your sex life is, you should still read both of these articles. Wonderful eye openers.
Go check her out and tell her I sent you.
