Toddler Hack!

Toddler Mom Hack: The electric toothbrush! I can literally brush his teeth without a fight! He’s so fascinated with the spinning brushes and enjoys it. It sounds like a 10 year old lawn mower, but I’ll take it. #cleanteeth #momlife πŸ˜πŸ‘ŒπŸ»πŸ‘©β€πŸ‘¦πŸ‘

Keeping It Real: The Book

When the Mr. and I decided that I would be staying at home after I gave birth, I had no clue what to expect. I had never in my life changed a diaper, babysat, or held a baby. But how hard could it be, right? I thought, if I’ve planned fancy galas, helped organized so many events I’ve lost count, crunched last minute important reports, pulled double shifts at work, how much more difficult could staying at home with a baby really be? I thought I could sit in a spotless home (bc I would have lots of time), laundry would be always done, and Martha Stewart would have nothing on me.

BAHAHA! I had a very rude awakening. I won this book a month ago at a local library. It’s been sitting this entire time in my car, a car that I’ve had no time to clean. Why? Bc of diaper changes, cuddles, crying, bottle times, feeding times, no don’t pull the dog’s tail begging, how does this kid not want to nap times, daddy is coming home and dinner is still frozen in the freezer times, did u just take off your diaper and shit on the floor times, 2am awake kid times, let’s sing your ABCs times, Library Story Times, I have homework times, we’ve gotta visit the family times, I need a freaking showerrrrrrr times, mama NEEDS a drink times (I can go on very easily). So, maybe one day I’ll get to read this little gem, but for now there’s a little boy calling my name, wanting all my attention. #sahm #momblogger #momlife β˜ΊοΈπŸ“šπŸ‘πŸ’

Waffles, by the Mr.Β 

Late day breakfast made by the Mr. His waffles are the best. Bacon of course too, because bacon is life in this house. 😁πŸ₯žπŸ₯“πŸŒ€

A Boy and His Pug
So, I knew when starting this that not only would I be sharing my life and thoughts, but I would also be vulnerable to the opinions of the world. So that said, let get this going. This has been a huge part of my week, it’s been a rough, crappy week. This specific story is not over. Don’t judge if I open a bottle of wine at lunch, we have all been there. 🍷 #momlife

Hello world!

Well, hello there and welcome to my little sanctuary of crazy that I call my blog! I hope you LOVE it! The bar is to the imaginary left, plastic wine glasses can be opened up from their packages by the fridge, if you feel frisky I can pour you something stronger, and the music in the background is a mix of 80s, 90s, classic rock, old school hip hop, new wave, and hold on…first confession coming up… a little bit equal parts of country and Luis Miguel. Yes, I know it’s all over the place, but so am I. I am currently a Stay at Home Mom, the most amazing, overwhelming, difficult, underappreciated job in the world. I am super lucky I get to be one. Prior to that leap, I worked in higher education, a local Chamber of Commerce, music festivals, rodeo, and in my early days I worked at nightclubs and was a bartender for a short period of time. I created this to share my life experiences, tips, tricks, hacks, worries and everything in between with you, the reader. Although I like to think of you more as the stranger that reads my diary. I know it’s creepy, but it works in my head. It’s a peek into my world, the ins and outs, mundane and extraordinary and everything in between. My little corner where I can get it all out on internet paper and feel a sense of relief and possibly accomplishment afterwards. So check it out, follow and watch my blog grow!

DISCLAIMER: Let me say that everything on this blog are things that I do in my personal life. The only professional chef I am is Chef Mrs. Cherry, aka mom in my family’s kitchen. If I’m exercising and post a video, ask a doctor before you follow what I do, I will not be responsible for a busted toosh, mmk? Also, when in doubt with everything else, do it at your own discretion. Again, this is the viewpoint of the life of me, myself and I. If you can learn anything from my page, great! And if this blog is just for entertainment purposes, that’s fine too. -xoxo- Mrs. Cherry
