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 […]
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 […]
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.
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.
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 ;).
Tell me, what do you find #MadeWithLove in your life?

Anyone who knows my family, knows we’re pretty much obsessed with the Seahawks. We both grew up rooting for them even when they weren’t a championship winning team. The first time they went to the Super Bowl was amazing for us, granted they lost, it […]
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.
If you’ve been following along on Facebook and instagram then you know I have been updating my daughter’s room. It’s very expensive to completely redo a room. Especially for a kid. From getting a toddler bed, new bedding, decor and curtains, it adds up fast. […]
