Life As A Mama #18

Today was too crazy, for me to set aside time to draw.

It was a Daddy day. So anything to do with mama was “the end of the world!” And dad slept in until 10am. So a few hours of just misery.

I had to make dinner early so the hubby could take some to work tonight. So of course that meant dishes…my meaning of life. 😖

Nap time. Mama was wanted. 🙄

Daddy left for work…”END OF THE WORLD” naughty baby to the extreme. Her answer when I told her stop doing that, “Dada yeah, dada yeah.”

Supposedly everything she does, dada would say yeah! 😩

I did one productive thing…I entered various recipes I had randomly jotted down. 😎

Only to finish, walk over, and see her pouring her milk on her puzzle…🤯 Time out! guess what…

“END OF THE WORLD”

When is this day going to be done…I’m done.

Enjoy your Saturday night! I will probably be suffering; meaning, someone out there in the world should have a good night! Please do!!

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

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.

Life as A Mama #11

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 had it casted on the TV so the voice said “now close your eyes and relax you entire body”
I felt like I died.

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 😎

Life As A Mama #9

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 🤓

It seemed weird this year…

It’s been almost 3 years…but this year making my birthday cake felt weird. It shouldn’t but it did. I got to zoom my family which was nice but making the cake, putting the candles in, and lighting them this year felt strange.

I don’t know if it’s because I’m a Mama now and my birthday isn’t as important as before when I didn’t have a baby…

It just felt strange this year.

Also my sisters cakes are to die for!! 😍
