Life As A Mama #21

15 degrees…means chilly but it was -30 a few days before…so now it’s a nice temp to play in the snow.
Mama on a mission for daddy and Elizabeth…🤨
Shovel the snow…shovel the snow…shoveling!
30min later…😎
She can now sled in the backyard…Mwahahaha
48 degrees…it was nice out. Sunshine. Slight breeze. Perfect day to be outside.
The snow is melting…her small hill is now like a frozen solid brick of snow…
Shoveling the other way…shoveling…
1.5 hrs later…only small puddles of water…she now wants to drive her car instead of sledding…
My muscles ache…the sun shine feels nice. The things we do for our children…🤪

That was counted as my exercise for the day…shoveling is fun but I am done for now.

Have a happy Wednesday❤️

Life As A Mama #20

She normally sleeps on her bed all night long, but some nights, like last night, she “snuggles” with mama and daddy…

Just in case people might worry. We have a heater on, and she likes no covers…I do cover her up when I wake up occasionally; however, every time it’s morning she has no covers…haha 😅

Sleeping peacefully…
There are pillows between the beds because of this reason…
As long as she is not dreaming she doesn’t kick…if I move her she wakes up. I’ve gotten used to it…
Midnight snack… baby toes anyone?
I guess mama is more comfortable than the bed…
Usually she ends up sleeping here between the beds…I usually wake up and cover her. It never stays though…🙄

She cracks me up sometimes…🤣 Although , I do love the nights where she actually wants to snuggle. I wake up to a sweet baby thing snuggling her mama. So sweet ❤️

Life As A Mama #19

This happened last night…

I had told the hubby for Valentine’s Day I would make him some apple strudel!! And homemade. 😎
The triple D’s. Haha but there were lots of dishes from dinner…I now believe that the sink area is my domain…
Ready!! And you can’t have strudel without vanilla ice cream…unless you are me and you have no lactose free ice cream made…
Happy Hubby and happy baby!
Sneaky baby hand…understand that as her hand came over the Hubby started to silent laugh…which caused me to laugh…
Hubby continued to laughed. I continued to laugh. Which caused Elizabeth to find it funny and shove a huge bite of mama’s strudel in her mouth…

I was only sad for a split second. Because honestly I had eaten about 10 Oreos yesterday, so she was saving me from gaining more weight.

Also strudel is better with vanilla ice cream, and how could I stop my hungry thing from eating. I’m sure all moms have experienced the days where your child doesn’t really eat a lot during the day…and you worry about them…

I was having one of those days yesterday. So for her to want to steal mine and eat it all, made me super happy. Her belly was full!

Enjoy your Thursday!! ❤️ And if possible have some apple strudel and vanilla ice cream! 😊

Life As A Mama #17

Never Ending…

Elizabeth loves art time…it can happen sometimes 2-3 time a day…
Climbing the furniture to reach her desired markers…
She knows what to do! I don’t have to help her anymore.
Dishes…seems like I’m always doing dishes…
Look Mama look!!!
Dishes are done. So sore. And I feel like I aged a few years.
What was that!?!
Really…😖
Look Mama Look!!!!
Just as it says…never ending cleaning for Mama…

All the moms out there…I understand…I most definitely understand…

Life As A Mama #16

Can you relate?

Typing away at my story…I’m on a roll!
Baby fingers appear…(my computer is a touch screen)😖
Struggling to type with one hand…now baby fingers are typing…
FINE!! I surrender. Save. Shut Down. Close.
Snuggles 🥰
Me: “WHAT!?!” H
er: Laughing as she runs away.
Well now what do I do…

She got what she wanted…mom’s complete attention. Now she just leaves me. Similar to a cat. Haha 😅

Life as A Mama #14

I felt so accomplished, but it was abruptly dismissed.

I really do hate alarms. But at least it’s going off at 8:30am and not like in my younger years at 4:30am.
She has her own bed, but occasionally she “snuggles”
Clothes picked out. Breakfast prepared!
Muffins, check
Tea, check
Alarm, check
#1 Baby dressed #
2 Baby fed
#3 Jacket on
Ready to….
hahahaha…now ready…

Probably a mom has experienced this many times. My feeling of accomplishment was taken by surprise snow. I despise surprise snow when I have to go somewhere. Well it was a crisp 18 degrees this morning; so the snow keeps on giving. Enjoy your Wednesday.

Life As A Mama #13

All moms will understand…all husbands be grateful to your wife…go give her a hug or kiss. Us moms are always super moms…😎

1. On my phone
2. Watch a movie with family
3. Shower w/o baby
4. Played w/ baby
5. Off page but etc…
Imagine all the dishes dirty…and all the laundry…
ALL!
Close to collapsing…

The dishes were done also the entire kitchen…3 hrs later mama was exhausted. I did the laundry the next day…9 loads later…all done!!😓

So again…husbands give your wives a kiss and hug. They deserve both!! Mama’s are awesome!

I learned it from mine, thanks mama for teaching me the tools to be a mama ❤️ Have a fresh start to your week.

The original…(usually I draw these at night while my daughter is distracted…so like 15min)

Life As A Mama #12

Another comic of my life. It keeps me drawing even if it’s simple drawings.

Mental lists…moms understand…
Exhaustion…
Imagine this happening as your eyes are closed and you just hear baby feet and chairs moving. 6 times.
In our living room
She understands completely, but she is at the age of not forming word phrases well…
Just try and feel my lack of energy…

All moms in the world may understand this…

But my daughter loves to clean. She got a set of toy cleaning tools for Christmas from her grandma, and Elizabeth uses them constantly. It’s nice usually, she likes to clean up her own messes and gets upset when she cannot get it clean.

However when you want to relax and your toddler decides it’s cleaning time you cannot say no, because you want to continue her love of cleaning; so that you will have a helper in the future.

So I mustered up the energy and I mopped. The floor is clean but I was exhausted.
