Things I’ve Accomplished as a Mom

Things I’ve accomplished as a Mom: 

  • Making food that gets thrown on the floor.
  • Perfecting my tone when counting to three.
  • Convincing my daughter that I’m taking chocolate medicine.
  • Understanding the true importance of Retinol in my moisturizer.
  • Ruining a toddler’s day by making him brush his teeth.
  • The ability to sensor the 200+ F bombs that come out of my mouth daily.
  • Only drinking after my kids are asleep.
  • Finding out just how long clothes can sit in the hamper before they’re too wrinkly to wear.
  • How to function on 4 hours of sleep.
  • Delivering empty threats at bath time.


But also…

  • Patience
  • How to embrace muddy hands and tangled hair.
  • Laughing when it counts
  • Hugging every single night, and
  • Saying I love you a zillion times.

There’s nothing in the world that could outweigh the kind of love you experience as a mom.

I have chronic bitch face and I’m ok with that. My love language is Amazon Prime. I have two kids that are pretty awesome. There’s this tall guy thats been hanging around since the 10th grade so I told him I loved him and married him - He wears camo for a living, and I dig that! I really love school. Its true! I get passionate about things quickly then write about it here. I started this blog about a year ago and last summer I started freelancing on the side for a few different organizations. I got a handful of opportunities to be a guest blogger for some parenting sites in the U.K. and since then, I've been trying to build my audience. I can assure you this isn't just another "mom blog." I'm opinionated, I cuss a little (a lot), and I like booze so hopefully that entices you to take a look. I'm also a military Spouse and politics run deep in my home. I work full time with youth and adolescents that face severe and complex mental health issues. And lastly, I'm a full time student working on my Masters in substance abuse/mental health prevention science. BOOMER! Put all of that in one bag and you'll understand why I drink and love a good convo! Check out my work from over the last year, I can promise you there is something for everyone.
