20 strangers do what to each other?!

You must be aware by now of a new phenomenon of sorts that's making waves on social media - that of 20 Strangers. The first was 20 strangers who were asked to kiss each other for the first time ever. (Um, awkward)   Then of course, there was a parody - 20 strangers giving each… Read More

Or maybe it's just "said Alison never". Nothing about pregnancy sucks. No, I don't want or need the extra 10 minutes of sleep. I don't mind the kids interrupting me when I'm doing my bathroom business. Why would someone eat ice cream every day? I hate cupcakes. I love Internet trolls. They make life so much… Read More

Neat freak

Everything is just so. In their place, lined up, stacked neatly, nothing askew.  The beds are made the way they're supposed to be made (my way).

Totally Reasonable Universal Laws Mothers cannot get sick when the children are. We should not get any pimples after the age of 15. Toast should never burn… Read More

Some magazine decided it'd be fun to 'rate' celebrity mothers (thanks Mommy Shorts for your post) - like, a B+ for eating your own placenta, or a D for refusing kids carbs (did I hear someone say Gwyneth? Why yes, you'd be right). Instead of ranting and raving about how stupid that is (because it… Read More

Quote about distraction

It's Monday morning, I need to write my blog post! Okay: one at school, the other is napping. Perfect. Let's start. Wait, need a cup of tea. Mug, water boiling, tea bag. Pour water. Brew. Huh, empty coffee cup in the sink. Wash. Wait, need to refill dishwasher liquid. Okay. Done. Gah, need to take… Read More
