Still snowing. Probably close to a foot of snow now. We all will be staying inside today. Enjoy your Saturday ❤️
Just a sweet thing she did yesterday.
Enjoy your Monday!! ❤️
I felt so accomplished, but it was abruptly dismissed.
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.
All moms will understand…all husbands be grateful to your wife…go give her a hug or kiss. Us moms are always super moms…😎
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.
Another comic of my life. It keeps me drawing even if it’s simple drawings.
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.
My experience today…
I decided to slow things down today and do a yoga exercise video. Just to stretch and strengthen my core. It sounded relaxing.
Going along it was great. Got to the cool down part of the video…this happened.
I died. So only close your eyes if you do not have a toddler around. She was so well behaved as I did the video, so I let my guard down…
It was funny that after she emptied my lunges the lady talking said, “Control your breathing, and let out all your air in your lunges,” Elizabeth was just a little bit ahead of the video…😜
Enjoy your weekend 😎
On the IHOP kids menu there was a question “What would your band name be?” I said “Pizzaaaaaa” said exactly like that. I thought that was a good name.
My husband and I were walking out of IHOP and saw a restaurant called Staggering Ox. Then our previous discussion came back…
“What about…Drunk Cow,” my suggestion.
“What about Staggering Sow,” his suggestion
“Beer Beef,” me.
My band name is now Drunk Cow. I like that….
Another strange discussion from my husband and me. 🤓
Something I just discovered because of my husband. He went in for a snuggle and then realized, “Agh…you have snot on your shoulder…”
And I replied, “Not surprised…”
Because I have come to discover that my entire person is a personal tissue for my baby.
She’ll be walking around with a funny look on her face and I’ll ask, “you okay, sweet thing?”
“No…,” a soft voice. A little baby no. (Her new favorite word.)
“Okay come here. Mama will try and help.”
A sudden sprint for me and my piece of clean clothing gets a nice smear of snot.
And it’s not like I can leave out a box of tissues for her…no no no that’s like toilet paper to her…it will be torn apart into tiny pieces throughout the house…
So instead my person is usually the tissue.
So I guess this post is for both: all the moms who understand, but also for all the husbands, “yes that is snot on my shoulder, put there by our offspring.”
Have a laughable Friday Evening 🤓
Breathing is a simple thing.
To most people this statement would seem funny. Or might ask, “What’s the need to ask this simple question?”
Okay, then breathing in physical exercise. Whenever you exercise you need to focus on your breathing. I’ve been doing an online gym app and constantly the instructors are saying, “remember to breath. If your not breathing I don’t know how you are doing it.” Again this seems to be knowledge that everyone knows.
But here is how this simple phrase becomes tricky. I constantly catch myself holding my breath. Doing abs, running, cardio, even stretching. When I think back to my younger years it has always been the same.
As some of you know I was a competitive swimmer for about 15 years. Swimming is a sport that defies all other instructors rules about breathing. Our phrase we always said was, “Breathing is overrated.”
So here I am trying to exercise and better myself and I can’t break the no breathing habit while exercising. I used to be able to streamline underwater for both 50 yards and 50 meters without breathing. Also sprinting those distances for competitive swimming events with only one breath.
I finished my exercise session for the day and I was dying. Not because of being inflexible, not because I am sadly out of shape, just because I caught myself several times holding my breath.
Since I am no longer a swimmer I need to change my ways and become a normal human being. I’ll check back with you all in a few years; either I will be a better breather or I will be still stuck with my habit.
So all I can say is breathe when the teachers say to. But if you were a swimmer, don’t worry you are not alone.
Bedtime is still a challenge. What entails for getting in bed: clean up the place area, do a little bit of dancing to get our wiggles out, shower, brush our teeth,￼￼ and then go upstairs. By that time Mama is tired and is ready to go to sleep; however, baby is wide awake and full of energy￼. So the pre-bedtime consist of playing with toys until she is ready for the bedtime ‘food￼’.
So I sit here waiting for my baby to get tired enough for bedtime. So all those moms whose days are long and hard; just think I’m still awake with a happy baby and I probably won’t be going to bed for another hour or two.￼￼ Be happy hour child has a set bedtime. 😊
But I will say I get 8 to 10 hours of sleep. So I am doing better than those moms with the babies who don’t sleep through the night.
Unless she is sick she has been sleeping through the night since she was two months old. Occasionally I don’t get all those hours of sleep, but a majority of the time I still get a decent eight hours straight sleep.￼
I guess this post is for all the moms out there. We are all vary but we all have the wonderful job of raising our little ones. They’re so sweet! And my baby knows it!￼
