I cannot believe the school year is over! How on earth will my children be in Third and Fifth grade?! Although I have missed a lot of special moments this year(1st and last day of school, spring concert, 1st softball game of the season... to name a few 😒), I could not be more proud! Only 1 B and the rest A’s and both of them were nominated by their FANTASTIC teachers to have lunch with their amazing principal and receive his certificate of excellence for outstanding personal character, responsibility, and leadership award. Payton also received an award of recognition from her teacher for accelerated reading!! #proudmom#momfail#lastdayofsecondgrade#lastdayoffourthgrade#acceleratedreader#onlyoneb#hellosummerbreak#dadhaspickedupmyslack
Did you know made SORRY for adults... cause I didn’t! My 10 yr old and I are on a game night kick lately and I talked him into letting us get SORRY as our game of choice to play tonight! All was good until the ‘ Never have I ever’ questions came up - ( here’s a taste of what the 10 yr old was reading) Never have I ever walked in on someone having ________! 🙄 I went straight to box that said ADULTS and it’s called Sorry Not Sorry Secret Confessions. No Regrets. Not my proudest Mom Moment! 😂 #momfail I think we’ll stick to Monopoly
Welp #momfail. I was working from home with Grayson who had a stomach ache and tried to get my workout in. He decided to make a tower with random items in the basement and they all came tumbling down 😩🤦🏼♀️. Needless to say it took an extra hour today...😞
5 days late! 🤫 #momfail
Honestly, 7 months hit us hard (We are still awake). Little man is growing fast! Lanceton got TWO bottom teeth in the same week... the slobber is no joke. It literally pours out. 🤤😂 He’s decided that our bedtime routine is overrated and he will become a midnight owl. OH.... and nap time is nowhere to be found some days 😴😵He loves moving backwards and side to side in his walker and sitting up all on his own! He’s saying mahhmahh and recently started dadddaaa 💙💙 No other love like this ♥️ (He knows how to take the back off the remote now...child proofing begins!)
Don’t waste your time reading any further as it’s a bit of a mommy sob story.
Food No. 42 of Adie+Max’s #1000Foods with #FingerFoodFirst adventure was Ezekiel Bread, or the bread Grammy left in my freezer that became dinner when everything fell apart.
I entered this week with a superwoman like stance, hands on my hips and feet apart, prepared to rock this mom thing because our nanny was on vacation and I was mommin’ #3under4 solo. Which included strapping the twins to my body (front and back, 40 lbs) to pick up Charlie from preschool a mile away and subsequently climbing 5 flights of stairs with all three kids complaining. No matter, I was going to rock this donkey-mama-back-breaking business.
Then Charlie got sick. Not like boogery sick, like 104 fever violently aggressive sick. And things just fell apart. He cried because I couldn’t give him my undivided attention; the babies cried when he cried. His fitful outbursts woke the babies from their naps and preparing meals became impossible because all three wanted to be held at the same time.
And then it happened. I yelled back. I yelled at a sick child and told him to cut it out. And I’m pretty sure that his newly formed frontal lobe will remember that moment for the rest of his life. The moment his mom yelled at him when he was sick.💔
So, toast for dinner. Because it was the only thing I had time to deal with. I’m not proud of it and have no energy to sing the praises of Ezekiel Bread, of which apparently there are many.
⭐️ProTip: Ezekiel Bread freezes nicely, which I know because I pulled out a 6 month old brick of bread my mom had stored in my freezer. I toasted it and put applesauce on top to soften.
Food No. 42 of the babies’ first #1000Foods with #FingerFoodFirst was Ezekiel Bread, or the bread I scavenged from our freezer for dinner because today was a total sh*tstorm.😫
The week started off well: Charlie went to preschool as usual and came back energized and happy. But then everything started falling apart. For context, our nanny who helps me take care of these maniacs has been on vacation and I have been on the hook for watching all 3 kids solo. And I thought I had it all down, I really did.
Then Charlie started screaming at the dinner table, refusing to eat. Not regular screaming. Bloody murder screaming. And I cracked and screamed back. He went to bed hungry.💔
Well, at about 2am, Charlie woke with a 104 fever, shaking. I felt like such a crappy mom. How could I have missed the cue? What I took for bad table behavior was Charlie coming down with a virus.☠️
Three awful days and as many sleepless nights later and I feel like I’m falling apart. My eyes are twitching and I am shaking from the lack of sleep—from running to Charlie in the middle of the night when he comes out of his room screaming MOMMY!!!! At 10:10pm, 12:35am, 1:30am, 3:30am and 5:15am. From force-administering Motrin and pleading with him to just.take.one.sip.of.water.🤕
So yeah, tonight’s dinner was toast. Not because Charlie wanted it, but because it was all I had the energy to make. The babies liked it.
⭐️ProTip: My mother, our family health nut, swears by the @foodforlifebaking cinnamon raisin Ezekiel Bread. While raisins are commonly put on the list of choking hazards, the American Academy of Pediatrics actually took them off their choking risk list in 2010, citing no reported instances of choking on raisins. So if you’d like to intro raisins, you can do so as early as 7 months and having them in Ezekiel Bread is a great way to go as they cannot clump together as they might if you just served raisins alone.
He got ahold of his comb while I was changing his diaper. I was afraid he’d poke his eye or something, so I took it away and tried to distract him with a chewie toy. Meltdown ensued. So eye-pokey-comb is his current toy. Emmett - 1. Mom - 0. #youwinkid#momfail#tootiredtofight#meltdownavoided
I feel as if every mom should get a sign to wear when they are close to an emotional break down. Like, please be kind to me... I am about to lose my mind. News flash, if you are going to shop @krogerco be sure you know your pin number to your new debit card because they dont allow you to run Mastercards as credit. Even if it is your only method of payment, and you might have to take all three kiddos out of the cart and leave behind an hours worth of groceries... in tears... while the cashier is rolling her eyes in frustration. Chic-fil-a at 7:30 for the win, and drive through @target keeping me well stocked in pull-ups and diapers. #workwidow#momfail#motherhood#motherhoodunplugged#everydaymoments#chicfila
We’ve had all of these issues except for “garbage bag dress” @goldfishandchickennuggets always gets my life😂😂 Make sure you’re following her for more!
Get outside! Because Vitamin D literally helps give your brain a boost.
There are a number of studies showing the benefits of sunshine, taking a break and just getting outdoors can do for your creative brain. @scientific_american American published a piece a few years ago that I love. It cited studies that showed, "The lower the subjects’ vitamin D levels, the more negatively impacted was their performance on a battery of mental tests." And, "The data show that those people with lower vitamin D levels exhibited slower information-processing speed." So despite the fact that it just feels dang good to get outside in some of that fresh air and sunshine, its also something you can do that just straight up good for you and help you break out of the mental fog.
Oh, and here's me - taking my own advice in NYC and getting a 5 minute boost before heading back inside to run a @eurekaranch Innovation Training. (And did I take this pic for my kids to show them the Statue of Liberty in the background only to block said statue with my noggin? You betcha!) #brainboost#getoutside#creativity#innovation#Ineedglasses#momfail#followme#drivingeureka
Bun is rough.
Bun is too high.
Bun is on the wrong side.
We went dressed for dance 💃 rehearsal on the wrong day. 🤦🏼♀️
I failed over and over today. One place I didn’t fail is the makeup. All plant based. All good ingredients that I don’t have to worry about harming her little body. No I just have to do it all over again on the right day.
MY KIDS DONT NEED A PERFECT MOM ❤️ ”There I was, driving in my car, completely overwhelmed with mom guilt. I hadn’t handled everything perfectly and I felt bad.⠀
I SHOULD HAVE DONE IT BETTER.
I SHOULD HAVE BEEN BETTER.⠀
I felt I should be a better mom and I began to devise a plan to never fail… ever again. ⠀
Because that’s what a good mom does, right? ⠀
OF ALL THE THINGS TO BE A FAILURE AT, WE DON’T WANT TO FAIL AT RAISING OTHER HUMAN BEINGS...⠀
As I drove in the car that day, I had a realization. I was making a mistake, but not the one I thought I had made.”⠀

The Two Year Old has no concept of safety.
He "laughs in the face of danger," if you will.
There are times that we allow him to test the boundaries of safetiness.
By "allow," I mean that we've already warned him several times against whatever injury-inflicting activity he's doing & he's blatantly ignoring us,
So fine, do your cool jump off the couch & bust your chin on the coffee table.
Maybe you'll listen to the advice next time... (he won't). But then there are times where we have to save him from his fearlessness in order to avoid serious injury or a CPS case.
Today, for example, we were enjoying a nice summer afternoon at the water park.
Well, not only did the Toddler want to climb UP a waterslide, there were a couple of big kids barreling down said waterslide at the same time.
Instead of letting them plow into the Toddler like a bowling ball picking up a spare pin,
My husband yanked the nonobservant turd-baby out of the way.
Good job, Husband!
A decent person would be grateful to their rescuer... But Toddlers are NOT decent people.
Toddlers are erratic, careless, unaware drunk people who yell at the bartender for cutting them off.
They're not like "Hey thanks! I know you're doing this for my own good," Instead they're all, "NOOOO!!!" *indecipherable screeching* "NOOOO!!!!! MOREEE!!!" *extreme body flailing* *collapses on ground* *more indecipherable screeching* & that's exactly how our nice summer afternoon at the waterpark ended... ...with the Toddler equivalent of a drunk guy being escorted out of a bar & forced into a taxi.
Go home, Toddler. You're drunk (too wreckless for your own good). #parentingfail#momfail#motherhoodunplugged#momblogger#storytellingmama#momhumor#motherhood#parenthood#toddler#toddlermom#assholeparent#realmom#honestmotherhood#bloggersofinstagram#momlife#mombloggernetwork#momsofinstagram
